April and May not only usher in a beautiful display of spring blossoms but also offer the perfect climate for enjoying the fresh, phytoncide-rich air of lush forests.

If you're planning a spring visit to South Korea, we have a fantastic destination for you in Gyeonggi Province.

Located in Gapyeong County, Gyeonggi Province, the Jatyanggi Purunsup Resort (경기도잣향기푸른숲) is an ideal spot to experience the dense pine trees and embrace the essence of the forest.

[What Makes Jatyanggi Purunsup Resort Special?]

This forest isn't just any ordinary woodland; it's a healing forest located between 450m to 600m above sea level on the slopes of Chukryeongsan (축령산) and Seorisan (서리산) mountains.

Home to Korea’s largest distribution of mature pine trees, some over 90 years old, it provides a serene and purifying environment that rejuvenates the body and mind.

[Activities and Facilities]

The Jatyanggi Purunsup Resort offers an array of activities and facilities that cater to all ages and interests. From forest exploration and healing programs to a woodworking shop and a healing center, there’s something for everyone.

One of the forest’s most notable features is its nearly 1km-long barrier-free path, ensuring that everyone, regardless of mobility, can enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the pine-scented air without hindrance.

In 2023, this forest was named one of Korea's Top 100 Beautiful Forests, marking it as a must-visit destination for families and nature enthusiasts alike.
