Depart from designated subway station and journey towards Mt Seoraksan, also known as Mt. Sorak, the highest amidst Taebaeksanmaek Mountain Range which boasts beautiful landscape and scenery all year round. The national park, designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, covers 154 square miles (398 sq km) and is home to more than 2,000 animal species and 1,400 rare plant species. As you follow your guide along a well-maintained path, keep an eye out for a variety of animals such as musk deer.

With your guide, visit the mountain's Shinheungsa Temple, with its giant bronze Buddha standing guard, before being transferred to Sokcho Beach.
