<Car travel distance>
Sinseongil Obstacle Trail (Snake Valley) → 15 minutes by car. About 10.67km → Real business → 11 minutes by car. About 11.97km → Gugak Holy Land → 17 minutes by car. About 10.07km → Baekdudaegan Ecological Education Center Exhibition Hall → 25 minutes by car. About 16.98km → Gwanghalluwon
Namwon is old-fashioned and elegant. The scent of tradition is evident. Gwanghalluwon is at the center. Namwon is also the hometown of Dongpyeonje, which is evaluated as the 'Voice of Folklore'. That's why we can hear our friendly melody all over Namwon. Above all, Namwon sits leaning against the generous and magnificent Jiri Mountain, and the mountain stream is clear and green. Bamsagol Valley and Silsangsa Temple are places where you can soak up the summer landscape of Jirisan Mountain.

Sinseongil Deck Road
Walk along the Jade Valley, Sinseongil Trail
Jirisan is large and deep. Around 40km of ridge line extends around Cheonwangbong Peak at 1915.4m above sea level, and contains over 20 valleys. There are also many temples and hermitages with national treasures and treasures. One of the most famous of these is the Snake Valley.
Sinseongil Obstacle Trail View

It is a beautiful place with a flowing water flowing smoothly through dense greenery. It originates from Banyabong and flows around 14km from the Bamsagol Exploration Information Center (Ban Seongyo).

Sinseongil Forest Shade
The trail along the valley is a fresh road. It is a distance of 5.6km from the Bamsagol Exploration Information Center to Wowun Village (Cheonnyeonsong). More precisely, it is about 1.6km round trip from the Sunin University, where the deck road ends, to return to the ticket office.
Blue cow by the side of the fresh road
Although it is not a long trail, a gentle sloped deck road is closely attached to the valley, so the sound of water is close and the noise is far. Another advantage is that you can enjoy a cool walk in the middle of the summer with a variety of broad-leaved trees. However, in general, the slope is gentle, but some sections are a little steep. In the middle of the beautiful scenery, there is also an observation deck overlooking the valley. Directly below the wheelchair, the jade-colored cow shines and the eyes are cool. Toilets for the disabled are located in front of the Ban Seon Bridge and inside the Bamsagol Exploration Center, and parking spaces for the disabled are provided in the visitor center.

Another name for the Snake Valley is 'Dolgolgol'. This means that the valley water will bend and return. The sound of the valley water is so loud. Occasionally, the sound of valley water flowing through a cool stream adds to the sound of wind passing through a broad-leaved tree, and is accompanied by a fine bird sound. The fact that the sound of the water near the cow and the sound of the valley passing through the large and small rocks are slightly different is also known by the valley near the trail.

'Wheelchair accessible' Restaurants
You can enjoy it at 'Jirisan Sanchae Restaurant' in Banseon Village at the entrance to the Bamsagol Valley.

Flat Garam, Real Sergeant Carefully Considering Wheelchair Access
Actually, Sangsangsa is a rare flat land in Korea. Located in the middle of a field near the village, it is called 'Sanjeol', 'Village', and 'Deuljeol'. The grounds are so spacious that the grounds are stiff, and Bo Gwang-jeon, the center of Garam, is unpretentious by revealing bare skin without a single measure. So, at first glance, it is thought that there is nothing to see. However, if you know, the real world is a treasure complex. There are 1 national treasure and 11 treasures. As a single temple, it has the largest number of national treasure-class cultural properties in Korea.
Silsangsa Temple Tianwangmun ramp
There is another reason why this place is so precious as a treasure. The space composition that considers the walking weak stands out.
First, there are no steep hill paths on the grounds, and there are no high-level stairs.
Shelter next to Myeongsangsa Myeongbujeon
Some of the steps were made with a ramp so that there was little inconvenience in moving the wheelchair, and a manatee for the disabled was also placed in the back of the ecology.
Silsangsa Ecology
There is a toilet for the handicapped in the temple where the temple stay is conducted, and there is a ramp for easy access to the floor.

If you have a companion, go to the paradise in the innermost position of the real company with assistance.
Silsangsa Pharmacist
Here, the most important cultural properties of Sangsangsa are concentrated in the most marginalized area.
Real Estate Incremental Ambassadorial Tower
It is easy to access the wheelchair to the augmented ambassadorial tower at the entrance of the paradise, and the road is curved and rugged and requires assistance from a companion.
Templestay Yosa Ramp
Three Seokjangseung (bucksoo) around the temple are also interesting. All are wheelchair accessible.

In reality, there are a lot of sounds. As it is not a temple located deep in the mountains, the sound of private houses and fields easily surpasses despair. It is also attractive to be able to immerse yourself in meditation while listening to the sound of beating bells in the sun. In the summer, the evening service starts at 7 pm. It's nice to sit under an old tree behind Myeongbujeon and listen to the serene and majestic ringing bell. On a windy day, the scenery cries all over the place. It is also a different experience to feel the texture of temple cultural properties by tracing the patterns engraved on stone lanterns or stone pagoda by hand.

Korean traditional music, Korean traditional music hall
Namwon is the hometown of Dongpyeonje. It is known as the background of Chunhyangga and Heungbu, and today is where Song Heung-rok's masterpiece, which formalized Pansori, the eastern part, was born. For this reason, a sacred place for Korean classical music was established in Unbong, Namwon.
Gugak Holy Land
The exhibition hall is on the first basement level and the second floor on the ground level, and the exhibition and experience rooms are located on the 1st and 2nd floor where you can enjoy various experiences.
Entrance to Korean Traditional Music Hall
It is popular because we can look at our sound culture and musical instruments in various ways. Especially, there are many people who can play traditional musical instruments such as Janggun, Gonggwari, Gong, Cheats, and Sogo lightly.
In front of the exhibition of Sugungga, the sacred place of Korean traditional music
There are toilets and parking spaces for the disabled at the entrance to the Holy Land, but they go uphill from the parking lot to the exhibition hall. It is recommended that vehicles with disabilities use the unpaved parking lot at the entrance of the exhibition hall.
Korean Traditional Music Hall 1st Floor Exhibition Hall
There is little inconvenience in moving to the exhibition hall after parking. Toilets for the disabled are provided on the 1st and 2nd floors of the exhibition hall, and the exhibition hall on the 2nd floor can be accessed by elevator. The experience room on the 2nd floor is also equipped with a ramp, so if you are a group, you can also experience various features including making a long ball (small) by making a reservation in advance.
Gugak Holy Land Cheats Experience
• Travel points for the visually impaired •
The sacred place of Gugak is a travel destination that can be enjoyed not only by the eyes but also by the ears. As soon as you enter the exhibition room (the braille block is installed at the entrance), the gayageum melody is automatically played, and there are traditional musical instruments that you can play directly around the exhibition room. If you are lucky, you can also listen to the sound of masters practicing pansori in the open air room (the place where you drill a hole in the mountain to practice pansori).

Ecology of Baekdu-daegan at a glance, Paekdu-daegan Ecological Education Center
Baekdu-daegan is the foundation of this land. The mountain stem that started from Baekdu Mountain leads to Mt. Jiri, and the mountain branch that splits from Baekdu-daegan connects to the mountains of the Korean Peninsula.
Entrance to Baekdudaegan Ecological Education Center
The Baekdu-daegan Ecological Education Center is a place where you can see the ecology and characteristics of Baekdu-daegan at a glance. Although the focus is on children's education rather than adults, there are several exhibits that may be of interest at adult level.
Commentator in the exhibition hall
Among them, the map of Baekdu-daegan in the exhibition room on the second floor is striking.
Map of Baekdu-daegan made of soil nationwide
The soils collected from the Baekdu-daegan in Korea are on display, but the north is empty, making the reality of division a reality.
South map filled with soil
It is worth paying attention to the culture of Baekdu-daegan in the exhibition room on the first floor.
North map without soil
Literary works based on Baekdu-daegan and various stories of people living Baekdu-daegan as the foundation of life are displayed.
Habitat Animals
There is a parking area for the disabled, and there are toilets for the disabled on the first and second floors.
Literature of Baekdu-daegan
A particularly noticeable facility is the outdoor pagoda (outdoor pavilion). The bottom of the roof is empty so you can enter the wheelchair. It is also good to take a long time in the shade and take a break from the wind of Baekdu-daegan. All facilities are wheelchair accessible.

• Travel points for the visually impaired •
Braille blocks are installed at the entrance of the exhibition hall, and braille information is entered into the safety bar as the entrance and exit of the insect greenhouse in the open air. Noticeable hearing materials are on the first floor of the exhibition hall.
Sound exhibition of Baekdu-daegan
Various sounds collected from all over Baekdu-daegan can be heard through earphones, ranging from bird sounds to valley water sounds to farm sounds.
Hearing materials listening space
Gwanghalluwon, a great garden for a day walk
Gwanghalluwon, which I met on a summer day, is dark with greenery. Usually called Gwanghanru, but strictly called Gwanghanruwon. This is because it is a garden that embraces Gwanghanru, and overall, it is less comfortable to move in a wheelchair, so it is a good place to enjoy walking and walking.
Wanwoljeong from the Yanji
However, close attention is required in the vicinity of the pond. The road from Yeongjugak built on Yeonji to Gwanghanru is beautiful, but it is uneven because it is not repackaged.
Gwanghanru and Ojakgyo
The Ojak Bridge, like the picture in front of Gwanghalru, is difficult to access because it is Park Seok. Instead, you can enjoy the scenery by sitting by the pond overlooking Ojakgyo Bridge and Gwanghanru.
Ojak Bridge Park Seok
A ramp is installed at the Chunhyang shrine (Chunhyang Yeongjeong Anchi) and Wolmaejip, and a lift is provided at the Chunhyang Pavilion where there are exhibits related to Chunhyangjeon.
Lift in Chunhyanggwan
There are parking spaces for the disabled in three places around Gwanghalluwon, and there are toilets for the disabled in the southwest parking lot, outside the west gate, and in the precincts.
Old tree shelter in front of the front door
• Travel points for the visually impaired •
One of the characteristics of Gwanghalluwon is that various performances are held from time to time. Most of them are Korean traditional music performances. It can be held on Wanwoljeong or on the floating stage above Yeonji. You can get specific performance information by calling the Gwanghalluwon Management Office.
Gwanghalluwon Stone Wall Road
If you have enough time, go to Yocheon Naru, which flows in front of Gwanghanruwon. In 2014, an old salt boat was reproduced in Yocheon, a milk line in Namwon. It is located between Seungwol Bridge and Chunhyang Bridge, and you can cross the pedestrian crossing from Gwanghalluwon to Yocheon.
Yocheon Naru ferry
It is a good place to stop by for a while to catch the river breeze by decorating the stream around the stream with flowers and windmills.
Yocheonnaru Flower Garden
'Wheelchair accessible' Restaurants
The Jeolla-do table is rich. The same goes for Namwon's outfit.
[Left / Right] Gwangseong Restaurant Chueotang / Fried Gwangseong Restaurant
One of the best delicacies Chueotang can be enjoyed at Gwangseong Restaurant near the parking lot in the southwest of Gwanghalluwon and the Countryside Chutangtang opposite the gate of Gwanghalluwon. If you have time, you can also visit 'Chunhyang & Lee Doryeong Mural Alley' near Gwangseong Restaurant. Although it is a short section, it is good to take a short walk and appreciate the pictures.

Accommodation information for `` handicapped rooms ''
There are not many accommodations with disabled rooms in Namwon. A recommended place is the Maid Hotel (Motel) on Yocheon Street. Although it was not able to fully provide the facilities that meet the standards for rooms for the handicapped, it is relatively easy to use because it has a ramp outside the building and there are few steps in the room.
Handicapped rooms for maid hotels
There is a step of about 5cm at the entrance of the room and the toilet, and there is no emergency bell. The bathroom has a bathtub and a safety bar.
