Seoraksan

On November 7th, I managed to visit Seoraksan again, this time was late autumn peak. Unexpectedly, it was still yellow and orange even though some leaves were already on the ground.

[HowToGetThere]

  • From Seoul Express Bus Terminal or Dong Seoul Bus Terminal, take a bus to Sokcho City ( 2,5 hours, 18.100 won)
  • From Sokcho Express / Intercity Bus Terminal, across the street and take bus No. 7 or 7-1.
  • Get off at Sogongwon Bus Stop (45 mins away)

[Tips]

    • If you want to take 2 courses (cable car and Ulsan Bawi) but for only one day trip in Seorak Mountain, you gotta leave Seoul early in the morning and comeback later in the afternoon.
    • If you want to enjoy more Seorak Mountain, you can stay over in Seokcho and play Pokemon Go!
    • Check the temperature before you come so you can prepare jacket if its cold.
    • Don’t forget to bring water and food.
    • Hiking during rainy day is dangerous, you can just take the cable car course instead
    • If you don’t like hiking, you can take the cable car course.
    • Come during weekday if you want to visit during peak autumn foliage. You might have to wait for a long time for cable car (1-2 hours to get your turn)
    •  The best view of autum foliage of Seorak Mountain is from the Gwongeumsong Fortress, which means you have to take the cable car for this.
    • The easiest way to travel is joining daily tour from Trazy. Recommended itinerary, good facility, and fair price. (Click here  Travel with Trazy)
