The last leg of my hike which started at Osaek and went over Daecheongbong was the 3km Biseondae course to Seorak-Dong, where I could take a bus back to Sokcho.
Since the 3 kilometers of the Biseondae course are mostly flat, it is one of the most popular trails in the entire park.
I could tell I had arrived at Biseondae when the number of people around mean increased by more than ten fold.
It was also clear that most of the visitors were not serious hikers who would, say, hike up Daecheongbong.
Of course, Biseondae is itself a very scenic spot.
I also planned to go to Geumganggul Cave, but I somehow missed the turnoff. That might have been just as well, since the sun was setting anyway.
I was also finally at an altitude low enough to see lots of trees which still had their leaves, which I hadn’t seen since the very beginning of the Osaek course early that morning.
Well, this is the last post about Seoraksan National Park, as well as the last post about Gangwon Province (next province: Gyeongsang-buk). Enjoy the photos!
If you want to see Biseondae in the spring, as well as the view from Geumganggul (which I did not visit), check out KLIMBING KOREAN MOUNTAINS.
