Winter Everland in Korea

3rd Day in Korea was kinda fun, we were shoooshed to Everland, I think it is located somewhere hilly or at least that's what I felt then (if it's not, then I am on denial mode. Hehhehe....).

As usual, Anna & I fooling around which kinda happened most of the time in most (all) of our trips. Most of the park inside was closed during winter, the ride, park and stuff however the winter side which have the toboggan slide/ride was available - YEAY! Finally I get to try. Anyway, we got to know that certain section close for certain season. Hemm..... interesting fact. But I guess it was still ok, as we were focusing more on the winter activities park then the rest.

So, here's the thing, Angie kept saying (Yeah! She was here the year before) we MUST MUST MUST (note the capital letters) go for the Safari ride... to see a special breed... we were going "HUH??!??! Well, okaaaaayyyy....."

Liger.... you heard me! It's a cross between a male lion and a tigress. Thus, it has parents with the same genus but of different species. (Excerpt Wiki) I heard ligers are fierce hence they were "caged" in the open.

Then, of cause there's the tiglon (You can't have one without the other right!??!) - a hybrid cross between a male tiger and a lioness. Similar as liger, it has parents with the same genus but of different species (Seriously, am clueless of what it meant! HELP!). The tiglon is not currently as common as the converse hybrid, the liger; however, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, tiglons were more common than ligers. (From Wiki as well, this doesn't look like it can come out from my brain huh! Hahhaha...). But tiglon was not in Everland then (Now? Who knows, you tell me).

I recalled Angie saying that the tram have a tiger face in front and we need to plan well so that we can take a pic in front of it (We were not suppose to stall or linger around after disembarking). We execute our exit plan and act on it promptly, the result? THE above pic lar (with everyone staring at us - as usual "pandemonium" occurred during this time [With us around??! But of cause!]). Hahhahah...

We felt that the tour guide have hots for Erica, and she was trying hard to "escape" form him. Hhahahha..... But of cause we INSISTED dear Erica to ride with him in the cable car. Aww..... "sweet". Hehehehhee....

Yeah yeah! I owned them! Feel "free" to shop here (But I will deny EVERYTHING! Hehheheh.....)

Aside from the Everland Park, we were taken to this lake to see limestone formation, can't remember much except it was a VERY COLD boat ride and that the mobile toilet was SUPER DUPER YUCKY!!!!! - that's all I can remember. We had to hold our breath and do what we had to do in a jiffy or perhaps NANOJIFFY or perhaps.... (you get the drift). Gosh! I should have taken a pic to proof it. This was followed by a cave exploration, well.... not much of an exploration, but it was fun to see the stalactite and stalagmite. Am not big on cave and enclosed area.

Last but not least, pic inside the cave - read the signage.

Hehhehehhe..... cute huh!

Hahahaha. I thought the Liger was a made up animal from the movie "Napolean Dynamite". I learn something new everyday.

George said...

It's too bad you could see the tiglon, but Everland looks like an interesting place to visit. I'm not sure I would enjoy the cold lake, however.

Shingo T said...

I heard about Korea's very own Everland park. Never been to Korea before, but when I do, I will definitely go to this place.

Liger is cute. Will it bit me if I try to hug it? =p

I love the photo of the lake! I have a love-hate relationship with theme parks. I am never quite sure if I like them, especially if they are partially closed ofr the season!!

Yoshi said...

After reading this entry, I so much want to see liger and tigon!! They look so interesting. I did not know that liger is the largest cats.
I want to hear their groan.

Ou, your reportage remembered me our day in Gardaland, an amusement park in North Italy. It was something unforgettable. Maybe because I was there only one time in my life. ;-))) But they did not have the alive animals in that period at least.

But I liked your "Lily House" very much! I would put there all the kinds of lilies! :0)))
