from Gangneung to Sokcho
One can take the bus to Sokcho from the Gangneung Express Bus Terminal. As of April 2007, a bus leaves Sokcho every 30 mins and the trip lasts for an hour and 20 mins. The ride is quiet comfy though there's not much to see along the way.
Express Bus from Ulsan to Sokcho
I was plesantly surprised to find a bus that leaves from Southern Ulsan to Northern Sokcho. It only cost me about US$25 or so to make that long 7 hour journey.
Take note that you'll need to change buses at GangNeung though. I wasn't aware of it till the last minute - Thank God there was a kind bus driver who looked out for me. He pratically carried my bag and guided me to the next waiting bus.
The bus leaves Ulsan Inter-city Bus Terminal at 10.30am sharp.
