A Korean National Park with beautiful landscapes.

My suggestion:
If you do not like hiking, mountains and magnificent scenery, pass this one by! Otherwise, start packing your rucksack now.
My review

This park has been on the UNESCO world heritage list for thirty years now. The mountains are truly beautiful and the landscapes are breathtaking.

This natural park has it all: historical monuments, beaches, mountains, hot water springs, etc. There is no accommodation in the park, so you have to lodge elsewhere and then catch a bus to one of the four points of entry. Before starting a hike or a trek, check that the trails are open, because at certain periods access is impossible for fear of fire.

The view over the park from the summit of Mont Daecheong is really beautiful, as well as the autumn landscapes of the region of Suryeomdong. After a day of hiking, I highly recommend a session in a hot water spring or on the beach. It will help you relax and rest up before continuing your trip in Korea.
