Korea National Parks

Seoraksan Mountain is known to have the most captivating scenic beauty and beautiful autumnal tints. The mountain has variegated leaves because it’s located in the center of the Baekdu Mountain Range. Centered around the highest peak named Daecheongbong (1,708m), the mountain is divided into Naeseorak to the west, Namseorak to the sourth, and Oeseorak to the east. There are Bongjeomam Temple, which is situated in the highest place (1,224m) among other temples in Korea, and Baekdamsa Temple, where a highly respected priest named Manhae Han Yong-un resided in the past. The cable car starts from Seorakdong. Seoraksan is an internationally well-known mountain designated as a Biosphere Reserve by the UNESCO.
