If you've always been filled with a sense of wanderlust, Mount Sorak National Park is the place for you. Over here, you can get away from it all . First, hike to your heart's content and explore all the beautiful ranges that the park can offer. After that, sink into a pool of natural hot water to ease those sore muscles. When you are done, indulge in a healthy meal of rice and mountain herbs and vegetables. It sounds too good to be true but it's real. This simple but beautiful place will be highlight of your trip to Korea .
Go to this place after you've yodeled or hiked all you want in the National Park. It's a small place where you can discover beautiful waterfalls, drink natural spring water or soak yourself silly in the hot waters. Did I also mention that the air here is crisp and cool as it's devoid of all the crowds in Sorak ?
It must either be the cool mountain air or the tiring hikes that I took. Whatever it is, the food here tastes better than any of the food I've tasted in Korea. Check out my reviews in the food recommendations.
- Pros:Best Hot Springs in Korea, one of most scenic places for hiking
- Cons:Crowds of people who have the same desire as you
- In a nutshell:A place to satisfy your wanderlust
