  • A gorgeous piece of nature that any outdoorsy traveler in Korea should experience! Great hikes, temples, cable car (if you wish). Go if you are in the area!

  • I visited Seoraksan National Park on the last week of October and it was the peak of autumn foliage in the mountain. I think I came just at the perfect time when leaves are still intact in the trees.....  more

  • Amazing. No words describe Seoraksan. It is a natural wonder on par with Yosemite, Mount Rainier, Kilimanjaro, or the Alps. It has one of the only examples of karst topography in the entire world, and definitely the most accessible example of such unique geology. It is accessible, gorgeous, peaceful, and presents a great hiking challenge if you choose the most difficult paths. There is something for everyone here.
  • Visit here 5 years ago for a Holiday trips, it was an amazing moment, the place was beautiful and very clean, if you loves natures environment you gotta love this place. You can take cable car to higher ground and the photo spot there even more beautiful unless it's foggy day.
  • This place is so peaceful and quiet that you may take a rest and reduce your stress by watching the beautiful scenery. If you are going to clime the Seoraksan, please add your energy at the food restrant because their foods are very oily. Therefore, it would be good a nutrient. Enjoy Korean foods and landscapes if you have enough pocket.
  • This place was astonishingly beautiful to see in the fall, so glad we made the trip and recommend it to anyone who loves nature and enjoys seeing the foliage change colors in the fall. So much to see, you definitely need to go early and probably take multiple trips to enjoy the entire park. The cable car was a great experience for our kids and the views from the top are absolutely breathtaking.
  • Got lucky, the weather was awesome and the views pretty breathtaking.
