Traveling in South Korea : Seorak-san National Park Gondola and Big Buddha

Seorak-san National Park (설악산국립공원) is in the east side of South Korea in Gangwon province. I spent the night at the local 5 stars hotel resort and woke up to take a quick hike up to the local Gondola, which goes up to one of the mountains.

No stands all the way up, just two strings per gondola. Makes one wonder whether the gondola can really withstand the stormy weather.

 

The views from above were breathtaking with strong winds that almost threaten to throw me off the cliff.

Going back down, I dropped by the local giant Buddha, proclaimed one of the biggest in Korea.
