I hiked up to the top of Sobaeksan, the highest mountain in Chungcheong-buk province – technically, it’s on the border between Chungcheong-buk and Gyeongsang-buk province. Naturally, it’s in Sobaeksan National Park. It’s the 25th highest mountain in all of South Korea. It’s an easy hike, it’s just steep and requires a bit of endurance. It was overcast most of the way up, and few people were there that day, but once I got to the top, I finally saw some sunshine which had sneaked past the clouds.
Enjoy the photos!
