  • Finally I am here again with Entourage, and boarded the private van. Indeed there was no autumn foliage, or red leaves. But.. We get snow at the Summit. The Summit? Yes only at the top, under the snow yet. And incidentally because we came in the morning, then to rise to the top wasn't too queued. But already crowded once inside. Maybe sometime could try to stay in the garden, so can try hiking in one of the route of the track.

  • It takes about four and a half hours to get to the foot of the highway bus and bus route from Seoul. It climbs by the ropeway to the top of the mountain, but you have to wait because it is usually crowded. But you can enjoy the scenery worth the wait. The temple at the foot is also tasteful. The town of Sokcho on the way is also interesting.
