A Day Trip in Seoraksan National Park. - Bobo and ChiChi

This hike is great for beginners and anyone who wants to see stunning views. The hike is flat and starts to the left after Sinheungsa Temple near the entrance. This 2km walk takes about 30 to 40 minutes. You’ll pass three different rest places to eat a meal or enjoy a drink. At the third restaurant you will know you have reached Biseondae Rocks.

So we head over to the cable car ticket station to buy our tickets which cost 9000 won per pax.
They have time slots and limits people to take the cable car.
We bought the 1.30pm time slot, that made us having spare 3hrs to walk around the park.
So can you imagine how many people came early to queue for the cable car ride to go up.

WANDERSUGAR: Conquering Seoraksan

And here it is. The famous stegosaur-like rock formation, Ulsanbawi, in the flesh. Beautiful and so awe-inspiring.

The view from here is just breathtaking. Simply breathtaking. All the pictures in the world can't accurately portray how amazing everything looks from up here, where you have a bird's eye view of Sokcho, the East sea, and the rest of the Taebek mountain region. I read that on clear days you can also see into North Korea from here, given that the DMZ is just an hour's ride north from Sokcho.

Hiking, Trekking, Local Tour in Korea: Seoraksan - From Osaek to Baekdamsa(Temple)

Seoraksan(Seorak mountain) is the most beautiful mountain as well as the second highest mountain in South Korea. The highest peak is Daecheongbong, 1,708m. It requires minimum 11 hours walking to touch Daecheongbong and back

The View From Over Here: One Night, Two Days in Seoraksan National Park

Our recommended trail: From 설악동, we went up to 천불동계곡. From there we went up to 소청봉. We stayed at 소청대피소 which is 20 down the trail from 소청봉. In the morning we hiked back up to 소청봉 and continued up all the way to 대청봉, the highest peak on the mountain. From there we took the trail that leads down to 오색. While you do need a little endurance, I wouldn't say this trail is too hard. It took us about 7 hours to hike up on day one, then another hour hiking up in the morning and 5 more to hike down (going very slowly). That was with lots of breaks too.
