Mount Deogyusan in Muju, North Jeolla Province, is one of the easiest mountains for visitors to climb to the top, according to the Korea Tourism Organisation.

The trekking course from Deogyusan National Park's Samgong Exploration Center to the main peak Hyangjeokbong, which is 1,300 meters above the sea level, via the BaekRyeon Temple is known to be a famous path during the autumn.

There are barely any uphill paths surrounded by pine trees and valleys to the temple, and trekkers will come upon the mountain's representative Gucheong Valley, which stretches 25 kilometers from the peak to Seolcheon River.

Visitors can take Muju Deogyusan Resort's cable cars to the Hyangjeokbong peak, costing about 14,000 won (S$17) for adults and 10,000 won for children.

Deogyusan, which known as "The Heaven of Wild Flowers," was designated as the 10th national park in 1975. For more information, visit
