So, you’ve finally made the best decision with your time in Korea and decided to visit Seoraksan National Park, or should I say: Middle Earth! Close to Sokcho, this National Park is home to endless trails, awe-inspiring views, cascading waterfalls, and views from Korea’s third-highest peak.
When it comes to mountains, height isn’t always everything. At a mere 685 meters, Maisan Mountain, located in Jianan-gun, Jeollabuk-do, may not be very tall, but it offers a great view of neighboring peaks and unique topography.
With fall just around the corner and the temperatures beginning to fluctuate daily, it will be just a few short weeks before the changing of the leaves colors transition into their beautiful autumn hue.
Sea snails are one of the popular cooking ingredients in Korea. You can find the dishes made of sea snails in Japan and France, but around 80 percent of sea snails caught in oceans around the world are consumed in South Korea.
