This is a great place to just get away. I hiked the entire mountain in about 4 hours going pretty quick. Bring plenty of water and some snacks. Wear layers since u will warm up quickly hiking nearly straight up.

Someone already mentioned how to get to Soyosan via vehicle, but it's just as easy to take the bus or train. The 39 bus will take you all the way there, or alternately, you can take Line 1 (dark blue line) to the last stop,...More

Soyosan is an amazing mountain hiking experience and Jajaem Temple is one of the first things you get to from where you start at the bottom. It's an ancient Buddhist temple, hundreds of years old although it was of course rebuilt several times, most recently...More
