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

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

It’s very beautiful park, especially in autumn. A lot of hiking trails which are well managed and clean. Avoid weekend if possible, it’s very crowded.

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

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
