Next, we'll proceed to the Gwongeumseong Fortress by cable car. It is also called Gwon-Kim Castle as there was a legend that two generals named Gwon and Kim built the castle to avoid war. As you ascend, view the interesting rock formation of the Gwongeumseong region, including Ulsanbawi Rock, and watch the East Sea come into sight.
With your guide, visit the mountain's Shinheungsa Temple, with its giant bronze Buddha standing guard, before being transferred to Sokcho Beach.
Your Mt. Seorak daily tour ends with your return to Myeongdong Station
