    Nostalgia for the most beautiful place on earth.
    I lived in Sok'cho Feb '66-Dec 67. I fell in love with the place and the people. Changed my life. Today I at 81 years I feel deep nostalgia for Sok'cho, Soraksan, the food and the sea. But mostly the people.

    Breathtaking mountain
    This is the most beautiful mountain I have ever seen. I always wanted to get here, seen it in korean drama and was very impressed, but to see it first hand was amazing. The foliage was partial only, must be even more impressive with the full autumn colors, but it's still absolutely breathtaking. Took the cable car and visited Sinheungsa temple too. Crowds were endless but nothing you can do, this is highly popular destination. Grab a taxi to get there then walk the last portion, avoid the bus not to get squeezed like sardines.

    Great retreat into the mountains
    Amazing view from the top! We were not seasonal hikers, took us 3.5 hours on the way up and 2 hours back down. Bring walking sticks and wear knee guards! It was a great retreat into the mountains.

The view was good. Place is pretty crowded and sadly the people working at the ticket booth did not respect the price listed. They will just charge everyone as adult including kids and they refuse to acknowledge the kids. Be careful and ask for the change when you are not paying exact amount, they will pretend that they do not need to return you the change. Management of the place need to be improved. Come early as parking is limited.

I visited Seoraksan National Park on the last week of October and it was the peak of autumn foliage in the mountain. I think I came just at the perfect time when leaves are still intact in the trees and exist in different vibrant vivid autumn colors. I woke up very early in the morning (around 5 AM) and used a tour taxi to get to the Seoraksan. It is recommended to visit the park as early as possible since heavy traffic is always expected during this season. I also used the cable car to get up to the top of the mountain and to see stunning views of the mountain. Since mountain trekking is an all-time favorite hobby of most Korean people, Seoraksan was a bit crowded when I visited. During the pandemic, I think it is still safe to travel in Korea because people observe strict social distancing measures and everyone is wearing protective masks. If you are planning to visit Seoraksan, make sure to plan it well to see other beautiful tourist spots such as the Ulsan Bawi, Biryongpokpo Falls, Oryeonpokpo Falls, and Towangseongpokpo Falls

The place is well visited by both tourists and locals. Unfortunately the cable ride to the top is suspended due to high winds. We settled to walk around the park and towards the main temple. There is also a huge Buddha on the way. The bridges both old and new made of stone and wood are sight to see with the mountains as a background. A lot of good photo opportunity.

seoraksan scenery in mid-december 2019, snow had started to fall the night before. so seoraksan look beautiful with a view of the effects of autumn and covered with snow. Where the temperature is not too extreme cold, it can be said that the temperature is very supportive for visitors to walk around the seoraksan.

A very beautiful place to visit! You can take very pretty pictures almost anywhere. There are different hikes available but it may get pretty cold during winter time. The scenery gets better and better as you advance up the trails.

SEP 2012 Very nice stay. My wife and I took our teenaged daughter and her best friend here for the weekend a couple of years ago and we loved it! We tried to do everything that was available at the location. The rooms are really nice and the food was also. We spent the whole weekend exploring and taking in the sights. It was a physically demanding to climb and walk so places but nothing that the average person couldn't do. Not sure if I would go in the middle of summer, we went in September and it was pretty warm still. I highly recommend taking a trip here

Didn't know what to expect, but this park is really worth to visit. We stayed at the Kensington Hotel around the corner, which was perfect. The park offers some nice hikes (even long ones). Although my son was a bit stressed (especially because of the open stairs) and didn't reach the top we had a great time and really enjoyed the hike and the views!

I recommend hiking with my family. Sometimes it was a little hard to walk, but the road is not rough. It is good to feel the beautiful nature. And the Buddha at the entrance is very grand. You can heal your mind with this peaceful atmosphere.
