Day 281 - Hiking Geumjeong Mountain
After the sunshine of the last days, it was a bit grey and rainy today. Despite this, I decided to stick with the plan and go hiking on Geumjeong mountain to the Beomeosa temple.
I got a good route recommended for the hike so I started off at Dongmun Gate before heading to the peak and then back down towards Beomeosa temple.
At first it was just grey and a light drizzle but the higher I got the more it was raining and while it was not ideal, It at least made for some very cool views with the clouds moving over the mountains around.
Right on cue for when I reached the peak, it stopped raining and even the sun came out for a bit. The views from here were fantastic and made the hike well worth it.
The next stop was Beomeosa temple, it's the most famous temple to visit and while quite nice, I preferred some of the other temples I have seen in Busan.
It was a very nice hike despite the rain and I enjoyed the day. After the hike and walking 3km just to get back to the metro station, the evening was just chilling and taking it easy.
This was my last full day in Busan before heading back to Germany for a brief detour.
