I like being challenged to climbed the rocky apex. Rather dangerous, but worth it. On top you can buy a medallion with your name engraved on it (yes, I did not buy it). I was rather amazed with the staff serving in the small shop stand, with no roof, it must be so cold.

It's such a lovely park, I wish I had more time to spend there to check out all the trails. Better go early to avoid busloads of tourists .

A cable car takes you up the mountain so there is no climbing required if you don't want to. The views are simply amazing, you almost couldn't believe this place was real if you didn't visit it yourself. Plenty of shops and restaurants at the base of the mountain and a couple of other attractions in the exact same location... More

Seoraksan is best known for its fall foilage, which had not fully appeared at the time I was there (August 2013). Nevertheless, there were some memorable spots, which were easy to reach. There is a good range of trails to choose from to match the traveller's ability, and I recommend Biryeong Falls if you have 1-1.5 hours and want an... More

Very peaceful and scenic place. Features a "moon bear" statue (supposed found on Seoraksan), a huge Buddha statue, and an underground Buddhist temple. Further in are a few stone bridges a monastery. A very nice place.

I visited Seoraksan before New Year 2015 with my firends. There was a very nice scenery. A melon icecream with very cold weather at the rest area was very delicious. We hiked to the summit Ulsanbawi. The wind was so strong especially on the top, but it's worth visit. I want to visit again if I travel to Seoraksan.

Amazing Buddha statue, fun trip (10,000 won) on the cable car, easy walking for the 2-hour visit before the crowds hit. Entrance fee was 3500 won. Saturday late morning we ended up turning around, figuring that if the traffic was backed up to that point then the park would be busier than we wanted to deal with.

We originally planned to go to another park to see the maple leaves, but came here by mistake. But it was not a disappointing trip. It took us a few hours journey from Seoul, as we are doing this as a day trip, it's a bit exhausting. They have quite a few routes here. We have of course picked the... More
