  • Information
    Introduction
    Seoraksan Mountain, spreading around the highest point, Daecheongbong Peak (alt. 1,708 m), is one of the most beautiful mountains in Korea, boasting a variety of colorful flowers in spring, refreshing clear water streams in summer, vibrant foliage in fall, and a scenic snow-covered landscape in winter. With the mountain changing in color according to each season, a visit to Seoraksan Mountain guarantees a picturesque landscape any time of the year.

    Hangyeryeong and Misiryeong Passes serve as a boundary line dividing Outer Seorak, located towards the East Sea, and Inner Seorak sections. The Outer Seorak section is a home to many large waterfalls such as Biryongpokpo Falls, Oryeonpokpo Falls, and Towangseongpokpo Falls as well as notable rock formations such as Ulsanbawi Rock and Geumganggul Cave. Convenient facilities are gathered around Seorak-dong, making it one of the busiest areas within Seoraksan National Park. Noteworthy hiking courses include the section between Biseondae Flat Rock and Madeungryeong Pass course and the trail connectcing Biseondae Flat Rock to Daecheonbong Peak through Cheonbuldonggyegok Valley.
