Seoraksan National Park is located in Gangwon-do
The national park attracts many national and international tourists all year round, but the main season for the Seoraksan national park is autumn. The autumn colours in the area are considered amongst the most beautiful in Korea. The red and yellow forest is interrupted by rocks and small mountain streams flow amidst this. During the rainy season (which is in summer) – especially after a typhoon – these streams can swell.
The Yukdam waterfall and the Biryong waterfall are located in a small valley near the main entrance to Seoraksan national park. This valley is typical for the beauty of the mountain in autumn.
Ulsanbawi is a very scenic mountain, and one of the most-commonly climbed.
There are many beautiful valleys in the Seoraksan national parks. The Biseondae is a rock platform in a stream. Apart from the colours of the mountainous forest the shapes of the rocks are attractive. A bit further away from the entrance is the Cheonbuldong valley. The name (Cheonbuldong, 천불동, 千佛洞) means 1000-Buddha cave. Not much imagination is needed to see naturally built Buddha statues in the rocks that dominate the forest.
