Taebaeksan on a clear day is simply majestic. When me and my friend reached the peak, we were at a loss for words. The view was endless green mountain ridges, seemingly forever. After visiting about 12 of Korea’s excellent National Parks, the view I was fortunate enough to witness at Taebaeksan equalled the very best. The beauty of the mountain ranges in Korea is that each peak is almost unanamously breathtaking, and possible to hike in the confines of a day. Like many sacred mountains in Korea, Taebaeksan has a weathered altar at its summit.
This may be suprising because Seoraksan National Park is located in the same province. While Seoraksan is undoubtebly exceptional and surpasses Taebaeksan in rugged beauty, however Taebaeksan feels like its just you and the mountain.
[♣ Crampons will be prepared for rental] 5,000won for deposit, will be refunded.
Most of trails snow would be packed and good to walk.
Some steep part will be helped with fences and poles on the trail. However the crampons give you stable grabs on your shoes,it’s very quick and simple to hook on your shoes.It’s safer to walk snow-covered path as it is cushioning and soft.
[♣ the Mine museum] is an unexpected joy to visit with an outstanding crystal/gem display plus excellent displays and even some interactive entertainment which we all can enjoy. entrance fee 2K won ————————-
