Listed as a tentative World Heritage Site, Seoraksan National Park shelters rare animal and plant life on an area of 163.6 sq km (63.2 sq mi), popular among tourists and naturalists. Valued for its natural diversity, the park has registered about 1,010 species of plants and 1,560 species of animals. Black bears, Siberian flying squirrels, otters, and other animals roam the reserve, just make sure to follow all safety measures during encounters. Besides exploring the serene natural environment, you can also visit the Buddhist temples situated near the park. The mountainous area--covered in pine trees, oaks, and other deciduous trees--annually receives more than 1,000 millimeters of precipitation, so carry an umbrella just in case.
