    Mount Soraksan National Park & Sokcho

    by victorwkf Written Mar 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Perhaps the most famous place in Kangwon-do province of South Korea is Mount Soraksan National Park. This national park consists of sharp mountains, forest and several buddhist temples, waterfalls etc and it is very popular with both locals as well as tourists. More information and photographs are at my VT Soraksan page. Near to Mount Soraksan is a nice fishing town called Sokcho which is worth a visit for its attractions and seafood, especially eating the squid.

    Beautiful mountains

    The mountains and surrounding landscape are very beautiful all year around. In winter, you can go skiing and there are also opportunities to do some simple trekking during the warmer seasons. More photos are at the travelogue section of my VT page.

    Skiing

    The main attraction of Phoenix Park is that it is one of the biggest skiing resort in South Korea where many people flock here every winter. If you want to stay here during winter, you must book way in advance. More information on the skiing slopes are at the webpage below. I visited during autumn, so it was not very crowded then :)

    is located downtown near the raw fish market.. unfortunately i couldn't actually get inside the observatory.. I couldn't understand--- either now someone is living there.. or you can't go in because they are renovating it...
