    If you are not fond of Riding Tour Buses, then just rent a car so that you can go places or if you are wealthy, then get a private tour for 2 to 3 people (which cost double the tour price) which uses a car with the driver also acting as the tour guide.

    If you want to get from Sokcho & Mt Seoraksan to Seoul, I suggest you take the deluxe inter-city coaches at the Seoul Express Bus Terminus. Coaches leave every hour from 6.30am to about 11pm, and the cost per trip is around 20,000 won. The journey is about 4 hours. More information about the timetables, cost etc are conveniently located at the website below.

    Driving to Mount Sorak

    by SLLiew Written Sep 28, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We drove from Seoul to Mt. Sorak. It is an easy highway drive and great to get away from busy city traffic. We took the northerly route there and a southerly route back whcih was more hilly and great views of mountain rocks colored by autumn foliage.

    On our journey back to Seoul, we observed many Korean students thumbing for a lift from passing by motorcycles or cars to Seoul. So if you may want to consider to give a local a lift, and at your own risk, to spice up your trip and try communicating with elementary English or Korean.

    Cable car going up to Gwongeumseong, Korea

    If you want to visit the famous remains of the Gwongeumseong Castle, you need to take a cable car up to the mountain. The cable car station is located near to the park entrance and each can accomodate about 40 people. Be prepared to wait for very long during the crowded season such as summer and autumn. More photos of the views from the cable car are at the travelogue section of this VT page.

    Bussing to Seorak National Park from Seoul

    by K1W1 Written Oct 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Busses leave from the Express Bus Station (intersection of subway lines 3 and 7 ) for Sokcho and cost 13,900 Won for the cheapest seats. The trip takes about 4 hours and there is a 20 minute rest stop after 2 hours.

    From Sokcho bus terminal, cross the road and catch the local bus 7 or 7-1 to Seorak National Park for just 700 Won. This trip takes about 15 mins.

    Cable Car in Sorak Park

    Cable Car

    Unless you have a dire urgency to the peak of Gwongeumseong , give this ride a miss. Trust me, it's no joy being an air-lifted sardine. Yes, you'll be packed with many, many Koreans into a big cable car with before the miserable thing glides a mere 800+m to the top. If having an elbow jabbed at your sides and a finger poking your eye is not good enough, the cable operator will play a country Western song to make your experience more miserable. You'll be glad when you reach the top, so take your time to look around.
