  • One of the most breathtaking moment in South Korea. It is far beyond description. If you want to walk on the cloud and see the splendid scenery, it is highly recommended.
  • Super nice nature with fresh air and nice straight bus connection. You can choose the path difficulty and then enjoy the view. The easiest path is damn crowdy though
