Welcome to the Wonhyo Pilgrimage Project!

Dear friends,

Welcome to the Wonhyo Project! After three long years of planning and preparation we are happy to announce that in December of this year we will make an honest attempt to retrace the route Wonhyo took to China in search of enlightenment.

As many of you know, Wonhyo never reached China, in fact he only had to travel as far as Pyeongtaek (close to the western coast of Korea)  before he had the realization that everything he ever needed to know was already on the inside. For more information on Korea’s most beloved monk, visit here.

Please visit this blog for regular updates or follow us on twitter for live dispatches from the trail.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make this project a reality. You will be in our hearts as we traverse the Korean countryside in the footsteps of Wonhyo.
