Begin your day trip to Seoraksan National Park with pickup at your hotel in central Seoul (Jung-gu, Jongro-gu, Gangnam-gu, and Seocho-gu areas. If you're staying elsewhere, you'll meet the guide and group at a central meeting place.)
Climb into a comfortable tour vehicle bound for the National Park, home to Mt. Seoraksan, the country's third-highest peak, set in the Taebaek Mountain range on the Korean Peninsula's east coast.
Once there, climb into the cable car that will take you to the top of Gwongeumseong peak, which provides photo-worthy views over the surrounding mountains and valleys. Travel through the forest to see the 62-foot (18.9-meter) Great Unification Buddha at Sinheungsa Temple.
After your temple visit, sit down at a local restaurant for a meal of grilled fish or beef shabu-shabu (hot pot), accompanied by rice and side dishes.
Your 9-hour day tour ends with drop-off back at your departure point.
