It's easily accessed on foot or by taxi from Gurye-gu Station. Head down the one road entering the village to a can't-miss orange coffee-shop/restaurant (and plan to eat or drink there-- the food is natural and delicious and the owners are welcoming. . . they also have rooms for rent if you want to spend the night! Very little English is spoken, though). Follow the trail that starts just along the coffee-shop, crossing the river and in 5 minutes the falls and surrounding climbs will come into view.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-computed field-field-adsense"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[ google_ad_client = "pub-4430246098785013"; google_ad_slot = "2696690644"; google_ad_width = 468; google_ad_height = 60; // ]]></script> <script src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-flexifield field-field-flexi-information"> <div class="field-label">Useful information:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-information-open-hours"> <div class="field-label">Open hours:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>24/7, though the restaurant/minbak (homestay) may be closed seasonally.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-information-duration"> <div class="field-label">Visit duration:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Autumn and spring are especially nice.
