We did the cable car and walked a bit on the top. It's probably the best thing to do at the national park if you're short of time. We only had the entire morning and hence decided on doing this. It was very well worth...More

Beautiful hike to the waterfalls but the hike itself was hard. It's for fit people. Especially, the stairs to the viewing platform.

Absolutely fantastic this place! Something to do for everyone.... Buddhist monasteries, restaurants, cable car, short walk to waterfalls, etc.... And best of all, serious hiking on many routes, all very well maintained. Watching the sunrise from the summit is sooooo impressive and unforgettable.

Drove to Seoraksan from Seoul with my parents. Make sure you're equipped with a good GPS. Went in July 2017 - hot days and heavy rains! If you're heading for the Buddha and the cable car - use the cable car location on your GPS....More

My itinerary was set to 2N3D to explore Sokcho inlcuding Seoraksan National Park. Sokcho alone (excluding Seoraksan) already has a lot to offer. But this place is HUUUUGE! There is a lot to do here! I definitely need to go back and plan a longer...More

A must go place in the area. The actual main reason of going to Sokcho. Good place for hiking but also a good place to enjoy for a short time by using the cable car. The view never lets you down and the fancy cafes...More

We had a delightful moment trekking around the parc and visiting the different temples and rivers. Unfortunately, the rain stopped us 1.8km from the top. Who knows, better luck tomorrow? You have need to come.

You can go alone, but there are often tours, look at "Trazy" online. I think they have something going on. The leaves should be turning at the time you will be here. There are busses that run out that way, but I'm not sure... More

I don't think people usually hire guides for the park trekking, the routes are quite well signed and most of the people travel on their own. Also the park closes in the evening, so it would probably be best to find... More
