    Avoid the cafe at Sorak Cable Car Building

    Carbo loading at the peak

    The food and drinks at the base of the cable car building is expensive, for God knows what reason....

    Unique Suggestions: Avoid buying food and drinks while waiting for your cable car to arrive. I believe the mean management over there is just taking advantage of the hapless tourist who have to wait an hour for their cable car to arrive.

    Fun Alternatives: Eat at the top of Gwongeumseong to recover from being packed like a Korean sardine in the cable car. The food there is cheap, delicious and unusual. I drank the best tea when I was there and the name of the beverage was... " Hot Honey Pine Needle tea" . I'm not kidding, it really tasted good. The roasted potatoes was good and cheap too.

    Avoid the cable car at Mount Sorak National Park

    Yong Pyong Cable Car

    If being crammed like a sardine in a Korean can doesn't appeal to you, avoid the cable car at Sorak Park. Yes, you'll also have to wait about 1/2hr to 1hr to be packed like a sardine.

    Unique Suggestions: Get some exercise and scale Gwongeumseong or Ulsan Bawi instead. It's less crowded, you'll get to see beautiful things along the way and you won't have to hear piped in Western music coming from everywhere...

    Fun Alternatives: Don't bother with this miserable 10min ride, try the best , longest cable car ride at YongPyong Resort instead.

    Korean food

    The food & drinks in the park is expensive but you do not have much choice anyway because there is no place else to get them.
