sunrise at Yeonju-dae

This is my last weekend in the Seoul area before I move back to the countryside with my family.

Something I’ve been wanting to do for a while before I go was too see the sunrise from the top of Gwanak mountain, so last night I hiked to Yeonju-dae and spend a chilly night in my tent waiting for morning.

A thick fog came in during the night, so I wasn’t sure I would even get to see the sunrise, but it just managed to shine through.

In the top photo, if you were to follow a trail past the broadcasting towers, then up and down (or around) another small mountain, you can actually come out not far from Hanmaum Seon Center.

  1. what a great idea!

    in this damp everything looks so unreal. a pic of ‘between’.
    i know kind of this atmosphere from the Lago Maggiore; when fog rises from it Rinpoche says, the dragons awake.

  2. wow, worth the wait. what a wonderful way to end your stay there. a small symbolic act, I think. reminds me that I don’t do this kind of honouring and transitional, ceremonial thing often enough.
