Ulsanbawi Rock, Sokcho

(4.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
An hour-long hike to Ulsanbawi Rock gives you the opportunity to feel like you're standing on the edge of a knife. First you need to climb rather steep steel stairs, but after that, take your time and walk on the paved trail. On your way up you'll spot a Buddhist temple, an ideal resting place. Once you've reached the top, you'll see both sides of the steep ridge. Relax on the summit, and watch the mesmerizing landscape until you decide to go back.

  • This rock has a legend. If you can understand Korean or read something before seeing this rock it would be more interesting time. Moderate level of hiking is required. 
  • Ulsan rock legend. Mt makes 12,000 rods in the country rocks to raise was to Ulsan rock to call saw beautiful Mt. Seoraksan Mt. Kumgang, with admiration in the end do the Mt. Kumgang in late.

  • It took 5 hours round trip to do Ulsanbawi trail, some people only need 3 hours. Depend on your strength. Total 6 km round trip with up and down step. So exhausted but believe me you will regret it if you don't do it, because the victory is so sweet, and the scenery is amazing. Tips: bring enough water and don't spend much, because on top only one seller who sells tea and is expensive.
  • Worth the climb -- it is an absolutely gorgeous view. The path, which is shaded only a little ways after the temple, involves many many stone and steel stairs. There is no water at the top, so bring lots!
