Week 2, traveling to Sokcho
So with still 5 days left ahead of me and with nothing to do, (seeing that I pretty much finished exploring Seoul) I decided to head off to Gangwando to climb Seoraksan, the 3rd biggest mountain in korea. Obviously I have done a fair amount of research beforehand. So currently I am in Sokcho right now, the closest city that brings us to the mountain. This city is great during the summer for its nice beaches and its fantastic landscapes. Though going to beach during the wintertime is not the best idea, the hot springs provide a great alternative to sit back and relax. Unfortunately the hostel over here is not as great as the Mr. Sea’s. This place looks deserted.
