We were lucky to have such great sunny days for hiking. In april there were not that many people. The cherry blossoms were blooming and mild wind was lovely. Wonderful place to visit in Korea and it's only couple of hours from Seoul.

Really enjoy the cable car. After that you have to go up stairs around 10minutes, but it's really worth it to go there because the view is really amazing. If you dont't want to go up, you can stay in cablecar stop, there is a cafe so you can enjoy some snack there

There is still snow at the top. After a cable car ride...and the ride is quite fast ,step out and my whole family is so excited to found out that there are a lot of snow out there. The view from the top is magnificent and don't forget to try the cheese pretzel at the local bar...its delicious.
