Seoraksan National Park: Biryeong Waterfall

From the top of a small waterfall, we see water cascading into a blue pool with trees of mixed foliage colors on the upper left.

Seoraksan National Park has many waterfalls. The most easily accessed in Biryeong Waterfall, which of course means it’s very popular.

For a person who can move at a reasonably fast speed, the round trip from the park entrance to Biryeong waterfall should take two hours or less.

A white water slide descends into a blue pool of water amide trees with mostly green leaves mixed with some red leaves.

But when going through lovely scenery like this, do you want to move that fast?

Between two sheer granite cliffs with a spotting of shrubs with green and red leaves flows a clear stream.

Biryeong Waterfall itself is a respectable 40 meters high.

A thin stream of white falls descends into a large blue pool in the shadows of a granite gorge with sunset-white sky above

Enjoy the photos!

    I haven’t seen or read a lot about waterfalls in SK but my gut says that there are a lot of nice ones like this.

      I know that there are a lot of waterfalls in Seoraksan National Park, and based on some of the photos I’ve seen, some of them are more beautiful than Biryeong. Biryeong is popular because it’s the most accessible, not because it is the most stunning. If I had had more time in Seoraksan National Park, I would have tried to find more of the waterfalls.

      Also, I only went to Pohang to change buses, but know that there is a temple there (Bogyeongsa) which is in a valley with 12 waterfalls. Also, there are the famous waterfalls of Jeju island, which will appear later on in this blog 😉
