Chiaksan National Park is off the beaten path for most travellers. The mountainous park offers some of the best hiking in Gangwon province with a fraction of the visitors. I hiked to the peak of Chiaksan in March and I was suprised to find snow! While I was not prepared for the snow, the hike was still acheivable and very much worth the effort.
The peak offered 360 views that seemed to go on forever. Also of interest is the ancient altar found at the top, this is a great reminder that many mountains in Korea were considered sacred. For most travellers Wongju is the gateway city to visit the park.
