[box_dark]Pyeongchang-dong Alley | 평창동길[/box_dark] On the southern outskirts of Mt. Bukhansan sits Pyeongchang-dong, a rich hillside neighborhood that boasts 20 galleries along its meandering alley. The steep slopes are sometimes difficult, but it’s enjoyable simply passing the time here just walking along. The galleries and museums fit so well into the natural outlines of the mountains and the posh environment. Standing on top of a gallery here, you can enjoy the scenic and panoramic views of Seoul and the mountains.
