  • This is such a lovely setting and the views must be stunning on a clear day. Unfortunately, it snowed during our visit which limited the view, but the ambience was wonderful.  more »

  • You need strong legs and great lungs to hike up to the summit from the cable car station.
  • At the end of the small hike up the long stairway was a amazing scenery during winter, but it was also very slippery up there, would be best to be cautious when exploring this area with hiking shoes.
  • Lovely landscapes💕. You can get there by a cable car. (Adult: 10,000 won)
  • Nice place to spend a few hours when the weather is good. Cable car takes you to 700 m above sea level. You can hike to it s peak , nearly 5 k metres . About 200 steps up after the cable car to see the views. Put this place in your check list when visiting sea port Sokcho , Sth Korea.
  • Get ready for a little work out to get to the top of the hill ..the stairs are well built and hand rails go all the way to the top...we visited during low season and even then there was a lot of people...during summer you have to go up on allotted times due to the number of visitors...but it is well worth the trek...amazing views and you can almost go to the highest point...take in all the beauty of the area and spend some time at the top...have fun and be careful
