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.

  • 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. So come to sit the rest of the press failed was named seorak legend. When I was a child, I remember it was so jam, I try to write. Seoraksan 780m metres above sea level on the north side of the rod. On March 11, 2013, the country was designated as a cultural property designated as scenic 100th. Sokcho to provide a look at the front of the rock while the Seoraksan right Ulsan rock. Ulsan is not small rock rocks Stone Mountain, you can think of. Walks along the steep stairs to the force. Climb on top of the Japan Sea and Mt. Seoraksan and it looks good

  • Though i was there alone i'm sure even my small daughters would enjoy this route. The Seoraksan National Park has a lot to offer who the whole family and Ulsanbawi course is one of its gems. Wether yo...  more »
  • One of the routes Seoraksan Park. Recommend to visit it first. Complexity is increasing gradually. First, an easy walk, then busy climbing rocks/stairs, then steeply up the most complicated 800 meters when several times wants to turn back, but the irrepressible Korean retirees who easily and naturally overcome steep stairs, do not allow you to surrender. View from above of course captures. We went to the windy weather, even a cable car because of this did not work, and at the top of the mountain there was a strong wind. No, not wind-vetrishhshhshhe. Even Boonie, had the foresight to bound with a rubber band, tried to fly away. Had to hold on to the handrails, not to go after them. Definitely recommend route because of the species and as a victory over themselves. But definitely comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing-on top of the wind was cold.

  • 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!
