    Introduction
    The fastest way to see the beauty of Seoraksan Mountain is by taking the Seorak Cable Car. Due to its huge popularity during the peak seasons in fall and summer or during the weekends, visitors may need to purchase tickets over an hour in advance. The cable car provides views of the fascinating rock formations of the Gwongeumseong Fortress region as well as the Sogongwon area, and Jeohangnyeong Pass and Ulsanbawi Rock to the north. To the northeast, downtown Sokcho and the East Sea comes into view.

    After getting off the cable car, visitors can take a 20- to 30-minute hike to the summit of Gwongeumseong Fortress to get a bird's-eye-view of the Outer Serok (Oeseorak) area. The cable car ascends at a relatively high speed with some excitement. Safety is assured and the scenery can be enjoyed with the guided tour in the cable car. It runs even when it is raining or snowing, but operation may be suspended under windy conditions.
