South Korea: Earth’s Hidden Wilderness

Experience the beautiful and rich nature of South Korea, one of Earth’s many patches of hidden wildernesses.

Once a mountain kingdom of ancient palaces and emperors, Korea in the 21st century is largely known for its modern cities and decades of conflict.

Tensions between North and South may be what defines it to outsiders but beyond the battle scars there is another side.

In South Korea there are large pockets of untouched wilderness where rich habitats and extraordinary animals flourish.

Here, Koreans continue to practise age-old traditions in tandem with the seasons and with nature.

It is in these connections, rather than in division, that we see the true Korea.
