Soraksan (Mount Sorak)

Two girls and 3 boys, we followed our Taekwondo Master, who used to be an army whom had uncounted experience in conquering Mt. Sorak. Believe me or not, our master was once the champion of Taekwondo in during his army service and he also used to do his training in the mountain for months. He was our guide and chef cum driver in the trip. Haha! Thank you master! Oh, and nit forgetting the delicious bulgogi. ^^
Mt. Soraksan Nature Reserve is a listed by the South Korean government with UNESCO as a tentative World Heritage site. The Korean government designated the area as a nature reserve in 1965 and UNESCO designated the area as a biosphere reserve in 1982. It was also the first Korean national park to be designated under the National Park Law in 1970. Located on the east and center of the Korean peninsula, the reserve covers Injegun, Yanyanggun, and Sokchosi. It is one of the most popular attractions for tourists and nature enthusiasts in Korea. The Mt. Soraksan Nature Reserve is valuable for its stunning natural beauty and rare flora and fauna.
