Seoraksan National Park



This beautiful park has deep mountain gorges, sparkling streams, granite pinnacles, remote temples and lots of hiking trails. It's a great place to enjoy mountain scenery and relax, especially in the autumn. At least two days could be spent there, visiting the Sinheung Temple, Ulsanbawi and Heundeulbawi (rocks), Yukdam and Biryong waterfalls, Gwongeumseong Fortress (take the Gwongeumseong cable car), Geumganggul (cave) and the Biseondae Plateau (legend has it that an angel ascended to heaven from there). While the scenery is splendid throughout the park, the 3,610-ft-/1,100-m-high Seoraksan is surely the country's most beautiful summit, especially if you are fortunate enough to experience the "sea of clouds" phenomenon. 75 mi/120 km northeast of Seoul.
