Beopjusa Buddhist Temple is located in a beautiful mountain Songnisan National Park in central Korea, about 180 kilometers from Seoul. From there it takes about 3 hours by an express bus.
Some proper names will help you.
1. Songnisan Terminal (속리산 터미널) ? the final destination
2. Songnisan (속리산) ? name of the mountain where Beopjusa Temple is located
3. Beopjusa Temple (법주사) ? name of Beopjusa Temple
The final destination is Songnisan Terminal (속리산 터미널), no matter where you start your journey.
Please note: All the visitors to the Songnisan National Park and the temple are normally charged with a small admission fee. However, it’s free for the Templestay participants. If you are asked for a ticket, just say to the ticket collector that you are here for Templestay, then he will let you pass without a ticket.
[From Seoul]
The easiest way is to take an express bus by which you don't need to change in between:
From "Central City Terminal (센트럴시티터미널)"
to "Songnisan Terminal (속리산 터미널)"
The time table of this bus
Departure
07:05
10:30
14:30
17:30
I would recomand you take the bus at 10:30.
Duration: about 3 hours
Please note: This express bus will stop at Cheongju (청주) first, but don't get off there. Remain in the bus. In about 15 or 20 minutes it will start again. And then it will make a brief stop at Boeun (보은) Bus Terminal again. The bus driver and almost all passengers may get off there. But do not get off there either! (Otherwise you will have to purchase another ticket for the next bus coming to Songnisan) You remain in the bus up to Songnisan Terminal (속리산 터미널). This is really the last terminal of the bus. You get off there. And then follow the following pictures.
If your journey starts Cheongju 청주 (Cheongju Bus Terminal 청주 버스 터미널):
There are many buses from Cheongju 청주 to Songnisan Terminal 속리산 터미널 beginning at 6:50AM
Duration: about one and half hours
The buses from Cheongju will make a brief stop at Boeun (보은) Bus Terminal too. The bus driver and almost all passengers may get off there. But do not get off there! (Otherwise you will have to purchase another ticket for the next bus coming to Songnisan) You remain in the bus up to Songnisan Terminal (속리산 터미널). This is really the last terminal of the bus.
If your journey starts not from Seoul, please let me know. I will find out for you the best way how to come to us from your place.
If you come by your own car, please tell me beforehand. Otherwise it can be difficult to find us, unless you know our Beopjusa very well. (Our experience says that the nevigation Apps, especially in English, are not always reliable.)
