Welcome to Seoraksan National Park

Seoraksan National Park

Seorak Mountain in Gangwan Province is one of Koreas most scenic areas and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The Seoraksan National Park is home to South Korea's third highest peak, which visitors can climb by means of one of a variety of trails up the mountain, or for the less physically inclined there is a cable car that runs some of the way up the mountain. The most popular time to visit Seoraksan is during Autumn when the surrounding foliage creates a visual feast with the different trees' leaves changing from green to auburn, red, yellow, brown, and gold before dropping their leaves. Seoraksan is best accessed from the small seaside city of Sokcho on Korea's east coast.

ATMs at banks are usually accessible only during banking hours, and instructions on the machines are generally only in Korean. Public ATMs at convenience stores and subway stations are generally available 24 hours.
