I think a must to visit Seoraksan National Park because it is one of Korea's famous tourist spot. Here you can enjoy the beauty of mountain with cable car (8,000 won) to go to the peak. If you are budget traveler, just take intercity bus...More
I spent two days exploring the national park. I did several trails and enjoyed them all.
The most popular one is the one up to Ulsanbawi Rock. Lots of Koreans were hiking up there. I didn’t get all the way because my legs were tired...More
Stunning maple colours in autumn, would recommend at least two days here to fully appreciate the vast park and hiking trails. We took the cable on the first day and did a short hike to the fortress. Next day we took a more demanding hike...More

It is a great national park that travelers could select their appropriate route of hiking trail. However, the writer did only travel the temple, Sinheungsa, owing to the schedule and weather considerations.
I am not sure about hiking in winter & suggest you visit the Seoraksan website to confirm. As for the nearest accommodation, that would be the Kensington Stars Hotel which is only a 5-minute walk away. Do stay in the western... More
I am not sure about hiking in winter & suggest you visit the Seoraksan website to confirm. As for the nearest accommodation, that would be the Kensington Stars Hotel which is only a 5-minute walk away. Do stay in the western style room. As for travel from Seoul, take the express bus from the Express Bus Terminal in Gangnam or the Dingbu Bus Terminal. The bus ride is just under 3 hours with only 1 stop for toilet break. At the Sokcho bus terminal, take a cab to the hotel - do avoid peak travel hours as the toad to the hotel and Seoraksan is the same so arrive in the late afternoon would be best. Enjoy your trip!
As I know, No express bus starts from the airport. I had started at Seoul express bus terminal to Sokcho express bus terminal and Dongseoul bus terminal to Dongmyeong bus station in Sokcho. Take a bus no.7 or 7-1 to the... More
As I know, No express bus starts from the airport. I had started at Seoul express bus terminal to Sokcho express bus terminal and Dongseoul bus terminal to Dongmyeong bus station in Sokcho. Take a bus no.7 or 7-1 to the park for 20 minutes. There are many accommodations nearby the park, vary on price, score reviews, location and guest's way of life. I recommend Hangang Park Motel because I expect to meet the owner and her helpful family. Although the owner can not speak English, you will be warm welcome, happy and communicate with her via translate app in her smart phone.
