An hour-long hike to Ulsanbawi Rock gives you the opportunity to feel like you're standing on the edge of a knife. First you need to climb rather steep steel stairs, but after that, take your time and walk on the paved trail. On your way up you'll spot a Buddhist temple, an ideal resting place. Once you've reached the top, you'll see both sides of the steep ridge. Relax on the summit, and watch the mesmerizing landscape until you decide to go back.

  • I recommend this haik for all who are in normal shape and do not mind to climb the steps. The whole haik is one long climb up the stairs, first stone, then metal. Haik is not technical, but you'll have to sweat, and it's worth it. The view at the top and throughout the hike is classy. My computer counted 8 km of distance and 600 meters of vertical ascent. My favorite mountain view point was not from the highest point, but from a flat stone platform near the temple. By the way, a huge boulder there is also called Superman and it can be stirred up well pressing, personally saw how two guys did it. At the top was a strong gusty wind. The weather in May was wonderful, went in the middle of the week, people are not much.

  • Daecheong Bong is too difficult to ride a cable car, and kwon kumsung is a somewhat suggestive course that is recommended for adults to climb on a moderate difficulty. A 6-7 km round trip is a difficult course, or a course that is well worth a day's travel, and it's the main course of Seoraksan.
