One of UNESCO World Heritage Sansa, Buddhist Mountain Monasteries in Korea
Sansa, Buddist Mountain Monasteries in Korea, consists of seven mountain temples which are Tongdosa, Buseoksa, Bongjeongsa, Beopjusa, Magoksa, Seonamsa and Daeheungsa and is now on UNESCO World Heritage List. Tongdosa Temple is located in the southern hillside of Yeongchuksan Mountain in Yangsan city(near Busan).
Tongdosa Temple is one of the three treasures of Buddhism. Tongdosa Temple belongs to Bulbo temple because it keeps Buddha's sarira and his shoulder strap under the Geumganggyedan, so there should not have a statue of Buddha in Daeungjeong Hall.
Naewonsa Valley lying in a thick forest located beneath Naewonsa Temple boasts magnificent natural sceneries as to be called the 2nd Geumgang from the old days.
After Yangsan city, we can drop by one of Busan hot spots where you want to go.
We can stop for photo shooting while driving from site to site.
Meeting point -> about an hour driving -> Tongdosa temple (2h) -> about 30 minute driving -> Naewonsa Valley (30m) -> about an hour driving -> One of Busan hot spots where you want to go (1h) -> Ending point
* There would be a meal time and coffee break.
* If interested, I drop by Oryukdo Skywalk. However Skywalk is not allowed to enter when it rains, snows and is very windy.
* If we spend more time on previous stops, we can skip or shorten somewhere else.
* This is a sample itinerary. I can also set up your own itinerary as your requests. Just let me know what things you want to do in Busan.
