Right next to the Jeonju Hanok Village is a forested hill with steep slopes. Because of dense tree growth there’s not a good view from the top of the hill, but there are a few spots on the slope where you can look down at the hanok houses below. At night the view of the Jeonju Hanok Village is supposed to be really nice and I meant to come back for a photo but unfortunately forgot.

On top of the hill there’s an area called Omokdae that marks the spot where a Korean general named Yi Seonggye celebrated his victory over Japanese pirates in 1380. The pavilion at Omokdae is a popular rest spot for visitors.
