I spent two days exploring the national park. I did several trails and enjoyed them all. The most popular one is the one up to Ulsanbawi Rock. Lots of Koreans were hiking up there. I didn’t get all the way because my legs were tired...More

It is a great national park that travelers could select their appropriate route of hiking trail. However, the writer did only travel the temple, Sinheungsa, owing to the schedule and weather considerations.

High areas for mountain climbing. If you are planning to visit typical tourist courses like Ulsanbawi, Gwongeumseong, Baekdamsa or Towangseong, it's fine.
