Cheonmasan Eco House is an eco-friendly hostel constructed in 2015 that uses solar power and rainwater. It was constructed to promote eco-friendly buildings and the beautiful scenery that exists along the mountain road. This view shines best at night, when the city is illuminated in spectacular harmony with the relative darkness of the mountain top. Visitors can enjoy the view for free on the terrace without having to stay at Cheonmasan Eco House, and explorers can walk along a trail that goes from the guest house to the nearby Sky Walkway for a romantic or contemplative stroll.
For those interested in staying overnight, there are four types of rooms, each of which can accommodate six to 16 guests. As of July, nightly rates range from 120,000 won to 240,000 won. As a result, the guest house is popular with families looking for a getaway from city life. Visitors are free to bring ingredients and make use of the establishment's rice cookers, microwaves, pots and dishware for meals.
Reservations can be made by visiting the site or by calling 070-8917-1503. For more information, visit cheonmasan-ecohouse.co.kr.
