I highly recommend a visit to Mt Seorak especially during the autumn. Took the cable car and was blown away by the beautiful autumn foliage!! Long journey from Seoul but definitely an unforgettable trip.

No wonder Seoraksan has a reputation of one of the most beautiful and popular national parks in South Korea. The nearest seaside town Sokcho (2.5 hour by bus from Seoul, then 35 mins by bus to the NP) is friendly and relaxing, and Seoraksan NP...More
