This place will be good for nature lovers and those who are in Jeju to relax and get away from busy city life. It only takes 1hour to cover the area at a slow pace. You may get a chance to see autumn foliage here from mid to late Nov as there are quite a number of maple trees in... More

Bijarim Forest holds about 2,800 nutmeg trees between 500 and 800 years old and is supposedly the largest nutmeg grove in the world. A 813 years old "Ancestor tree of Bijia tree", also dubbed the "New Millennium Nutmeg" (#0001 tree) sits in the middle of the forest. Local residents hope the spiritual power of this noble tree will bring happiness,... More

Not a big forest and you have to pay a small fee to enter, a quick hours stroll some pretty trees not much else to see though.

Not too impressed with the attraction. Went on a Monday just after a morning drizzle. Just a pretty run of the mill forest (seen waaay more impressive ones elsewhere). Doesn't help that you have to pay to get in. Be prepared to get your shoes/feet muddied.

Nothing really special. 1000 (for youth) and 2000 (adult) admission fee. I wouldn't go there if it wouldn't be close to my guesthouse.Maybe it would be interesting for families with small children. But for a walk i would rather prefer going to the beach.

It was once the most beautiful street in Korea. As a German that comes from the countryside it was just a regular forest with a small hiking trail. Nothing real special about. I was a little disappointed. If you're in a hurry, don't visit the Bijarim Forest but rather the Lava tunnel which is close by!

You can walk around under the shade of thick netmeg trees. Also, you can enjoy basking in the woods. The oldest tree is about eight hundred and fifty years old.

This forest of nutmeg trees are easily accessible and very easy and nice to take a walk - 2 easy trails which are around 1 to 2.2 km long - all easy terrain, just some stretches of little gravel roads. We enjoyed an hour's walk in the sunset and loved it. While travelling there, keep looking out for the road... More
