Namparang-gil Trail, a walking path connecting Oryukdo Haemaji (Sunrise) Park in Busan to Ttanggeut Village in Haenam-gun County, Jeollanam-do Province, was opened on Oct. 31.

The trail's name literally means "a path along the southern blue coast." Stretching 1,470 km over 90 sections, Namparang-gil spans the nation's southern coast under the so-called Korea Trail, which connects the nation's east, west, south, and north, and is the country's second trail after Haeparang-gil Trail along the eastern coast.

Namparang-gil has a coastal road with gorgeous coastal views of the national parks Hallyeohaesang and Dadohaehaesang, as well as forest, village, and city roads.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism on Oct. 31 also held a ceremony at Ttanggeut Village under the unofficially titled theme "Walking Together Along the Warm Blue Sea, Namparang-gil Trail."

Second Vice Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Choi Younhee said, "We will make Namparang-gil Trail a tourist destination for safe travel on the beautiful southern coast and a place to stay in and experience the region's culture, as well as a catalyst for invigorating the regional economy."
