Mt. Seorak area (설악산)

Seoraksan (Mt. Seorak) is about 3 hours away from Seoul and loved by many for fall foliage views. It is the third highest mountain in Korea, after Mt.Hanla and Mt. Jiri. The latter ones are very far away from Seoul, compared to Mount Seorak.

    Our group generally enjoyed the tour. Seoraksan is beautiful! The weather was perfect— sunny but chilly. we even experienced a light snow on the observation deck and observed ice on the ground from the night before. The temple and bronze buddha were interesting to visit. At the gift shop, we enjoyed free herbal tea with the mooncakes we bought. Our guide, Midori, was very careful to keep tabs on all of us and keep us on schedule. She gave us a brief background on the park and the mountain while we were on the bus. It would have been nice to hear more info about the place and local stories of the area. Lunch was simple but filling. We were told we were getting a bibimbap lunch but what we got was something more akin to Kimbap… which was easier to eat. Im glad we had the chance to witness the height of Seoraksan’s beauty in Autumn!

    It was a very well organized trip. The location was great but it would have been better in the mid-October when there is the pick of Autumn foliage. But the from the point of view of organization it was very nice. The tour guide Midory was very friendly, speaks English very well and also very informative. The lunch could have been better a bit. Overall, I will certainly recommended the trip but in early to mid October.

    • KoreaTravelEasy    

      Thank you Sazzadur for your kind comment! We are very happy to hear that you satisfied with the tour!:) Yes!! For Seoraksan, from mid to end of October would be nice for autumn leaves. Thank you for your detailed review again and we will deliver this message to our partner for improvement. As you might know, you can never guess the nature and in this year, the autumn leaves have changed color earlier than the previous year. However, we hope this was your good memory for your tour in Korea!

    Very well-organised tour. Our tour guide – Midori, is very friendly, professional and helpful. She went an extra mile to help us take photos and answer our questions regarding our trip. Lunch was provided, which is very nice and filling. Seoraksan is amazing in autumn, we totally enjoyed the tour although it was raining. Highly recommended.

    Tour guide Midori was organised and good at her job. I thought she’s Japanese but she’s also fluent in Chinese? 😮 I loved my walk through the base of seoraksan through the autumn trees. The rainy weather spoilt the ascent to the top though

    • KoreaTravelEasy    

      Thank you for review, Jocelyn! We will deliver your comment to the guide, she must be happy to hear that. Hope you see again!

    Very nice tour. The company accomodated us, and many others, by adding an additional bus. Fall colors were awesome and the guide was very friendly and spoke good English. Cool to have gimbap for lunch on the trail.
