With the mountains exploding in the magnificent array of yellows, reds and oranges, locals assemble in the national parks to have a picnic till October when the winter arrives.
Winter: The Korean winter is rather long and harsh which become even more pronounced as you keep going the further into the north. Travelling in winter is not impossible as the public transport continues to work undaunted, by putting in heating systems under the floor cranking up the heat all the way up. The lack of rain at this time creates a very photogenic contrast between crisp blue skies, powdery snow, the earthy yellow of dead grass and off-black pine trees.
