Package Itinerary

Mt. Seorak → Gwongeumsung Castle by Cable Car → Sinhung-Sa Temple → Daepo Fish Market

Depart from your hotel and journey towards Mount Seoraksan, also known as Mt. Sorak, the highest amidst Taebaeksanmaek Mountain Range which boasts beautiful landscape and scenery all year round. The national park, designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, covers 154 square miles (398 sq km) and is home to more than 2,000 animal species and 1,400 rare plant species. As you follow your guide along a well-maintained path, keep an eye out for a variety of animals such as musk deer.

Next, we'll proceed to the Gwongeumseong Fortress by cable car. It is also called Gwon-Kim Castle as there was a legend that two generals named Gwon and Kim built the castle to avoid war. As you ascend, view the interesting rock formation of the Gwongeumseong region, including Ulsanbawi Rock, and watch the East Sea come into sight.

With your guide, visit the mountain's Shinheungsa Temple, with its giant bronze Buddha standing guard, before being transferred to Daepohang Port Fish Market, where eel, flounder, yellowtail, and gourmet seafood are sold. See the lively stalls and restaurants surrounding the fish market, selling dishes featuring the local seafood.

Explore More About Mt. Seorak:

Seoraksan is the highest mountain in the Taebaek mountain range in the Gangwon Province in eastern South Korea. It is located in a national park near the city of Sokcho. After the Hallasan volcano on Jeju Island and Jirisan in the south, Seoraksan is the third highest mountain in South Korea.

The mountain is divided into three sections; of the three, Outer Seorak is the most accessible (and typically the most crowded). Visitors hoping to escape the crowds should head to Inner Seorak, the least developed section on the western edge of the park. Southern Seorak is famous for its mineral springs. Guided excursions to the mountain take the form of single-day hikes, with options for easy or hard trekking courses, or multi-day treks through Seoraksan National Park that offer a chance to see some of the less-visited areas of this mountain range.

Be sure to wear sturdy hiking shoes and dress in layers, as it’s significantly cooler at the top of the peak.

Visitors wanting to overnight at the park can rent a camping site or find accommodation in the village of Seorak-dong in the Outer Seorak portion of the park.

ATMs and a post office are available in the nearby village of Seorak-dong.
