仁川江華高麗山杜鵑節 Incheon Ganghwa Goryeosan Azalea Festival

四月時去了仁川江華高麗山杜鵑節,一整個山上都是杜鵑,拍了上面那張照片,真的是超美,很推薦這個賞花的地方。

I went to Incheon Ganghwa Goryeosan Azalea Festival in April, the area near the top of the mountain was covered by azalea, it was such a pretty sight that I have to recommend this place after I come back.

去江華島可以在新村或弘大搭3000號公車,然後在江華客運站下車,在客運站裡面就可以另外轉巴士去各登山路線的出發點(上面地圖藍色標示的地方就是各路線的出發點,總共有五條路線)。因為朋友只是週末有空,所以我們就週末來,人車也比較多,巴士也會慢一點,等車也要久一點。到了客運站可以看到下面這個時間表,左邊是去一號路線的,右邊就是其他的所有路線(二至五)都經過的巴士。

You can go to Ganghwa Island from Sinchon or Hongdae using bus 3000, and get off the bus at Ganghwa Bus Terminal, and change for other buses to the starting point of the hiking routes (starting points marked with blue on the map above, a total of 5 trails). Because my friend is only available on weekend, so we went on a Saturday, there were many people and many cars, so there were traffic congestions and queues for buses, so please prepare more time for everything if you are going on a weekend.

When you arrive, you will see a timetable like the one below, the column on the left is the bus for starting point of route 1, the right hand side one is for route 2 to 5.

在人多的日子,我建議大家就像我一樣去了之後,看到那一班巴士可以擠上去就上去,反正都只是為了看花…我是上了去2至5號路線的巴士,所以本來是打算二號線上,一號下來(因為一號的起點其實是江華歷史博物館,那裡還有攤位市集等等…但我們一上去就瘋了的跟著一大片杜鵑走,結果去了四號線那邊…所以就沿四號線積石寺那邊下來…江華島其中一個有名的是那裡的支石墓,我們沿著四號線過去也看到了不少,不過支石墓廣場那邊的應該更值得看吧?

If you are going on a day when the bus terminal is packed with people, I suggest you do what I did, just get on the first bus you can squeeze on, since any one of the course can get you to the flowers. I took a bus to courses 2 to 5, so initially we planned to go up the hill via course 2, and get down via course 1 (since the starting point of course 1 is Ganghwa Historical Museum, there are also stalls and markets there during the festival, but when we got up, we forgot about the path and just followed the flowers, so we ended up getting downhill via course 4). Ganghwa is also famous for dolmens, and there are some along course 4, but those in the Dolmen Site probably looks more like UNESCO heritage haha.

這是四號路線沿途看到的支石墓。

These are the dolmens along the way down course 4.

我們出發之前有想看看這路線會不會很難,但網上就沒有看到很多資料,走完其實覺得沒有很難,會要上山,但其實就一個小時左右,不會要爬很久很陡的坡,沿途就是這樣的路,也不會很難。

Before we started on the hike, we wondered if it would be difficult, since we could not find a lot of detailed information about it. Now that I have finished it, it is not very difficult, just about 1 hour uphill and not very steep.

我最初擔心沿途會餓…其實二號路線出發點和山頂都有吃的東西可以買,不帶食物也是可以的。

I was worried about being hungry along the way, but actually there are food stalls at the starting point of course 2 and also on hill top, so you will be fine even if you do not bring any food with you.

這是沿路買的江華特產쑥개떡,我的朋友很愛,我就覺得有點清淡,如果喜歡吃清淡味道的朋友,大家可以試試。

This is a specialty food 쑥개떡 from Ganghwa, my friend loved it, I found it a bit bland for me, so you can try and see if you like it next time you go to Ganghwa.
