What To Expect

Starting from your hotel, we will have a drive about 3 hours(depends on traffic) to Sokcho city. Sokcho is famous for the tourism in Mt. Seorak and East Sea. In Mt. Seorak national park, you choose to participate in 3 activities(hiking, riding on cable car, going to Shinheungsa Buddhist Temple). Around Mt. Seorak, you can enjoy some of the attractions at the East Sea, such as a Youngguemjung pavilion at the sea, Sokcho beach, Sokcho Light-house, Naksansa Buddihist Temple, Great Taoist Temple, Sea Garden(Organic Cafe&Bakery by beach), Fishery Port(Dongmyeong Port, Daemyeong Port).

We provide you options for adding Nami Island to your tour program or making it 2 days tour. As about these options, we can talk about it later in order to figure out how much more labor and expense might be needed.

Here are some of the typical itineraries that you can refer when you work on your itinerary with me. The tour schedule can have changes by some factors like traffic on the highway or the long queue for the cable car ticket, or what kind of food you would like for your lunch, etc... For the same reasons, we cannot estimate the timeline with the great accuracy.

Seoraksan National Park
Mt. Seorak has been known as one of the mountain in Korea. This mountain is said to have 1,000 faces from Its irregular shapes with rocky landscapes, therefore, it is also called as a 'beautiful lady' mountain. Because of its beauty and the preservation of the endangered species, this mountain is registered as one of the representative national parks in Korea, and also as UNESCO's Biosphere Reserve.

In this place, you can enjoy the beautiful mountain views by hiking, or riding a cable car. The route for the cable car is out of the hiking trails, so you can enjoy different aspects of beauty of Mt. Seorak.

Sinheungsa Temple
This temple is inside the Mt. Seorak National Park, and takes about 30 minutes walk from the cable car station.
