Time for a nessecary detour for the checkpoint perfectionists. It’s an 11 kilometer detour. But, double that for the return to 20 kilometers. The checkpoint is just before the dam. But you can continue on to the Chungju Dam Observatory (충주댐전망대).

Tomorrow we head deep into the mountains of Mungyeong.

If we continue up the north path for a while, we’ll pass a few bridges and creep up a challenging hill. Let’s detour up the off-ramp of the second bridge.

If we look left, we’ll see the Dong Seoul Bus Terminal (동서울종합터미널). If we look right, we’ll see the tallest building on the peninsula.
