VIDEO| Walk on the edge at Yonggwolsan Mountain in Korea

Yonggwolsan Mountain in North Jeolla Province stands at 646 meters high and features a “sky road” for those feeling adventurous. The sky road is a wide wooden plank path with safety rails offering stunning views of the Seomjingang River and the surrounding area with a touch of adrenaline for thrill-seekers.

The mountain is a rocky, bizarre spot in the Noryeongsan Mountain Range. Here, the rock formations make Yonggwolsan an interesting sight, almost as if to live up to its name “Mountain of Dragons” in Korean. Avoid weekends and arrive early as there is only one lane on the road to the mountain’s entrance. From the parking lot, head up the gentle trail near the public restrooms which connects to a set of stone stairs.
