Ulleungdo Special: Nature Trek 2

After the east coast it’s time to take the other half of the island. Since we had the whole day to tour, almost all the other spots that we did not visit the other day were our targets for the whole day. So it were west coast and the middle part of the island.
Mushroom Rock was our first short stop. Going there was also awesome. The ocean scenario was perfect. Well, as you can see the name implies everything. The rock looks like a mushroom. Hehe.

Then we went to Taehahyangmok Tourist Monorail (태하향목 관광모노레일). This was one of the best are. Not because of the monorail, haha but after you get off and walk maybe for like 10-15 minutes more up the mountain, you could see one of Ulleungdo’s scenic spot. It was really good. You could see that the seawater’s almost untouched. We took a lot of pictures there. I learned that the area is also a habitat for Chinese Junipers. Going down, we did not take the monorail but just walked. As expected there were more spots when we walked. Going down was like making a movie in a forest. Anyway, the man-made structures like the trail and the trails on the cliff were very impressive and of course helpful.
Then we went to Yaksu Cable Car. This is where you find the Dokdo Musuem as well. The cable car gets you to another scenic spot. It requires another 10-15 minute walk. It’s all worth it to walk since it’s not like I’m in Ulleungdo everyday. So trying to make the most of my stay there I tried to see all the places.
