Frozen, Naesosa Temple in the White Snow

Buan-gun, Jeonbuk, Korea

This Byeonsan Winter Travel Course is prepared with 'Naesosa-Gear Sosa Salt Paste', which binds inner and outer mountains at once. Not to mention the millennium consideration Nae Sosa, Gomso woven in one course, and decided to take a look at the salt pant. Gomyeojeon, which has been famous for a long time, in the West Sea, I will not be involved in the salting technique developed to eat abundant seafood for a long time. The winter Gomyeojeonjeon is a vivid landscape filled with ice snow glittering like salt instead of salt. If you add the quarry river and red river, the outland mountain is perfect for winter sea travel.

A trip to the West Sea, where you can see everything at sunrise and sunset, becomes even more abundant in winter. Is it thanks to the seasonal foods? Is it the power of white snow? One winter, during the heavy snowfall of the West Coast, I visited Buan Byeonsan Peninsula, the pearl of the West Sea. I missed the winter landscape of the Naesosa fir forest road and the arid seasons of the Reddish River and the Quarry River.

Buan Byeonsan Peninsula, Pearl of the West Sea
It's a winter torsion. A salt field, salted out as it is. Snowy salt fields resembling white salt are more serene and beautiful than you might think.
Salt storage for salt
In addition, if the day is clear, you can see the sunrise at Gomso Port.
Before dawn
The Saemangeum Public Relations Hall is the first to greet you when you enter Buan along Saemangeum Road.
Red wall named for proud scenery
Go up National Route 30 and look around the coast of Byeonsan Peninsula (outside Mt.) and go to Gomso Port or follow the Inner Mt.
The appearance changes depending on the water
Knowing when to bite makes it easier to make copper wires. Because quarrying and reddish rivers are different depending on the time of lifting.

In other words, if it is time for water to fall into the quarry and red water rivers at the time of arrival, you can walk to Naesosa Temple or Gomso Port first. You can check the time at the Byeonsan Peninsula National Park website.

When the arrival time is high, stop by the Red Rock and Quarry River first. After eating, go up to Euibong Peak (85m) and look at Byeonsanji vegetation and Gappo Port at a glance.

Then take National Route 30 and go counterclockwise to reach Gomso Port.
Road to Chicken Ebon (85m)
Wait here! Before you reach Gomso Port, remember the Jeonbuk Student Maritime Training Center located between Evergreen Beach and Mohang Beach. You can enjoy the wonderful fall falling into the sea against the backdrop of Sol Island.

If you want to shoot a good sunset, you should arrive and wait 30 minutes before sunset. If the time is not right, you can see Gomyeojeonjeon or Naesosa first.
Buan Bear Fire Hydrant Sunset
The reporter looked for Naso Sosa in anticipation of seeing the sunrise at Gomso Port. Naesosa is famous for cherry blossoms in spring and colored leaves in autumn. The winter scenery in the white snow does not fall out. If you find it right after the snow piled up would have encountered a more spectacular scenery.

A Millennial Consideration Meets the Fir Forest Path
According to records such as Dongguk Yeoji Seungram, Naesosa's original name was 'Sorae-sa (蘇 來 寺)'. It has been said that it was named “Naso” because the Chinese Tang Dynasty Chang-Sang Jeong-bang was established. After one week, the path leads to Cheonwangmun and a fir forest path that introduces Nao Sosa Temple, which is more than a thousand years old.
It's about 500m. If you reach the Cheonwangmun through the fir forest that is likely to lead to the Winter Kingdom, it is welcoming to Nasosa. Daewoong Preservation (Treasure No. 291), which appears to be brilliant, almost disappeared. There is a lack of testimonial data and it is preserved as it is without coloring. Along with Seonggyesa Temple, Silsangsa Temple and Changrimsa Temple, it was selected as the 4th largest temple in Byeonsan. Only Naesosa keeps its place for many years.

The flower pattern grate, which has been dull for the past year, is also eye-catching. At sunset, you can see the shadows of the flower-patterned grate with the red sun. Here is not the end. If you find Naesosa, let's go inside Daewoong Bojeon. There is a statue of White Kannon Bodhisattva on the wall behind the Buddhist altar. If you make an eye upon your eyes, your wish will come true.

Yeongsanhoe Gwanbultang (Treasure No. 1268), Goryeo Dynasty (Treasure No. 277), and a legal book (Treasure No. 278) are also treasures of Naesosa. Due to the large number of external exhibitions, it is rare to be in Naesosa Temple.

King's beloved salt, resurrected in the modern day salt-bearing salt

After exiting Naesosa, climb National Route 30 and you will soon reach Gomso. Gomso has been famous for salt pans since ancient times. Gyehwabeol was the main production area, but during World War II, it became a land by constructing roads and building dikes linking the interlocking villages with Hodo (Bumseom), Ungyeon Island, and Sokdo during the end of the Japanese War. As such, the 45 hectares of Gomin-so-jeon are located in Gomso Port. The annual salt production boasts 2500 tons. Let's take a quick look at the signboard at the beginning of Gom Gomin.

Gomso's specialty is salt. In the past, salt was so important that it was managed by the state and must not have been sold until recently. One of the things to take to the king's refuge was salt. While man is necessary to live… (syncopation)… The production of salt in Buan was mainly flame, and the area of Gyehwa Daeverly was the main production area. Gomso's good salt taste makes fermented foods such as Gomso Salted Fish, Soybean Soybean Paste, and Cinnamic Bamboo Salt, a specialty.

Gomyeojeon, which has been famous for many years

Gomson solar salt is produced from March to the end of October. You can get salt every summer and every 3 to 5 days in spring and autumn. Summer salt is large in crystals and small in crystals but hard in autumn. Gommon sun salt has little bitter taste because it is not used when the concentration of liver water becomes dark.

I found Gomso salt field before dawn. The snow is still piled up due to the heavy snow on the west coast, which has not yet wakened up from the dark. It is not cloudy and the sun does not appear. Instead, I could see the Gomyeojeonjeon waking up. Slowly dark goes Instead of salt, the snowflake sits on top of the salt pan and shines. Except for the winter, you can also enjoy the Gomyeo salt preservation experience.
