Seoraksan Mountain Pass
Seoraksan Mountain Pass, Republic of Korea
The hike up Seoraksan Mountain 설악산 (5,604′) in Seoraksan National Park, S. Korea takes a full day if you have photography in mind. It is a relatively civilized hike. There are no death-defying leaps from bolder to bolder over raging mountain streams required as can be seen by the footbridge in the above photo. I would say the greatest danger would be imbibing too much of the fermented rice drink served in small bowls at the peak. The taste is sweet and it looks like milk. To the palate, there is no indication of its alcoholic punch. Hint: hold on to the guard rails on the way down.
