Beautiful place of flora and fauna to spend a few hours. It's a good trek up the summit so be sure you wear the right shoes. The park hosts Buddhist temples Baekdamsa and Sinheungsa. The tea house run by the monks is a nice place...More
Very much worth the 3 hour trip from Seoul. Get there early on weekends for decent parking though they do a great job double and triple parking cars. Trouble is there's a huge jam outside.
Big to-dos: eat at any of the various restaurants in...More
We came over 2 days at the end of October, where the autumn season is still in bloom. We attempted a few trails over the 2 days. The easiest is the Biseondae trail, where the path is pretty flat and wide for the most part....More
Our tour itinerary included visiting this beautiful Seoraksan National Park, also known as Mount Seorak. Autumn here is so beautiful. We also took the cable car up to the only station. Then walked up the trail to the peak. It was very tiring but the...More
South Korea is proud of its national parks and Seoraksan is emblematic.
Featuring magnificent landscape, including streams, falls, forests, temples and animals, Seoraksan, the beauty of Seoraksan was amplified by the fall colors, enough so to make we want to return each October. A moderately...More
Went for autumn viewing but was too late and all the leaves have mostly withered. Supposed the mountain should be very beautiful in full bloom. Summer should be very scenic with water flowing, green leaves and beautiful sky. Took the cable car to the observatory...More
Upon persuasion by a Korean friend, my sister and I decided to try walking the easiest trails at outer Sorak. We did our walks on 24 & 25 Oct when the autumn foliage was pretty nice. We did Biryeong Falls on our first trek and...More
I am not sure about hiking in winter & suggest you visit the Seoraksan website to confirm. As for the nearest accommodation, that would be the Kensington Stars Hotel which is only a 5-minute walk away. Do stay in the western... More
I am not sure about hiking in winter & suggest you visit the Seoraksan website to confirm. As for the nearest accommodation, that would be the Kensington Stars Hotel which is only a 5-minute walk away. Do stay in the western style room. As for travel from Seoul, take the express bus from the Express Bus Terminal in Gangnam or the Dingbu Bus Terminal. The bus ride is just under 3 hours with only 1 stop for toilet break. At the Sokcho bus terminal, take a cab to the hotel - do avoid peak travel hours as the toad to the hotel and Seoraksan is the same so arrive in the late afternoon would be best. Enjoy your trip!
As I know, No express bus starts from the airport. I had started at Seoul express bus terminal to Sokcho express bus terminal and Dongseoul bus terminal to Dongmyeong bus station in Sokcho. Take a bus no.7 or 7-1 to the... More
As I know, No express bus starts from the airport. I had started at Seoul express bus terminal to Sokcho express bus terminal and Dongseoul bus terminal to Dongmyeong bus station in Sokcho. Take a bus no.7 or 7-1 to the park for 20 minutes. There are many accommodations nearby the park, vary on price, score reviews, location and guest's way of life. I recommend Hangang Park Motel because I expect to meet the owner and her helpful family. Although the owner can not speak English, you will be warm welcome, happy and communicate with her via translate app in her smart phone.
