We visited Gyerim Forest along with the tumuli parks and the observatory. It's a calm, quiet, small forest & is a lovely place to just walk and relax. We visited in the late evening as it was getting quiet dark - we ran out of...More

Nice mini-forest in the immense historic area of Gyeongju. Great to have a cool stroll, while passing mini temples and more burial grounds.

We only passed the forest on our way but it is very nice and keeps you cool during the hot summer days.

Locate near with other tourist spot. I think it is a so small forest that you can walk around 15-20 mins and you will already finished seeing everything. It's like a miniature of a forest and an ancient house in it.

Not much for a forest & things to see. Just a stroll to get to Choseongdam Observatory. The surrounding areas like the Gyeongju Hyanggyo & Gyodong Choessigotaek are much more interesting.

I came to see this as I was here in autumn and wanted to see the leaves changing colour. Its a small "forest" which you can walk around and see some nature, but its not something you should come out of your way for, luckily...More

Walk the meandering path that twists and turns between trees and over a small stream. No bikes allowed!

It is much more like a small lightly wooded area, but it does have some very old trees. It is quite moody, but doesn't take up much of your time.
