강원도 속초시 설악산로 1085
Seoraksan is considered to be one of the best mountains in Korea. Daecheongbong (1,708m above sea level), which is the highest peak, is covered with white snow for 5 to 6 months of the year, so it was named Seorak. It is also famous for the mountains with the best view of Korea's rock formations. When you enter Sokcho from other areas by bus, you can easily see Mt. Seorak, which shows off the rocky mountains in the distance. Many tourists visit Mt. Seorak all year round, not only in winter, but also in all seasons. You can see the magnificence and mystery of Seorak at any time of the year with azaleas in spring, green leaves in summer, colored leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. In addition, there are more than 100 species of animals, including Edelweiss, which is found in the Alps, and 1,200 rare plants and half-beared bears. The mountain must be climbed directly to understand its true nature, but climbing to the highest peak of Mt. Sorak requires a lot of stamina and time. But there's a way to get up the mountain in no time. It is Seorak cable car. In just 5 minutes, you can easily climb to Seoraksan. There are a total of 50 passengers, and two of them travel back and forth, but there are a lot of people in high season such as spring and autumn. As you ride the cable car, you can see Sinheungsa Temple, Sinheungsa Daebul, Byeongpung Rock and Ulsan Rock in the distance. The destination is Kwon Sung-sung, built in 1253 to prevent the invasion of Mongolia. Kwon and Kim are known as Kwon Geumseong because they built a castle overnight. The walls are almost torn down and the ruins remain, but the magnificent view of the indecent and the endless sea of the East Sea make us realize the greatness of nature.
