Biryong Falls (비룡폭포 in Hanguk) is a waterfall in Seoraksan National Park in Sokcho, located halfway between Yukdam Falls and Towangseong Falls. The loud falling water of falls is said to resemble dragons flying up towards the sky, which is why it was named Biryong (flying dragon) Falls. The frozen waterfall in winter is another magnificent sight.

  • On the hike you pass super clear water , you get company from the chipmunks if you have some food to spare, the view at the top is really nice and worth the climb. The last part is steps but still...

  • This was absolutely the best hiking trail that I have trod upon in my entire travel history. Come during the fall, around the second week of October on a weekday, where there are still fewer people before the peak season begins. Although the foliage is not as red compared to the last week of October, you can still appreciate the transitions of greens to yellows and crimsons. The trails to the waterfalls are for the beginner hiker and could take around 2 hours back and forth if you aim to take pictures during the walk. I can tell you that the journey is worth more than the actual destination. I am also in awe of the large suspension bridge nearing the end of the trail. Enjoy the view of billion-year old rock formations and serene rivers with colossal sandy white boulders. This is definitely not a trail to be missed while you're in Seoraksan, away from the busy lines of the cable cars.
  • SPECTACULAR! Not only were the falls beautiful, the walking trail there was amazing.
