Seoraksan for Chuseok

I know it'll be crowded and what not, but what place worth going to won't be? And I heard it's the most beautiful spot in Korea, so why not spend four days there.

Now can anyone advise on the best place to go of all the climbs listed as being in the park? We'd need a place where many people can camp and where supplies may be bought.

Before too long, check to see if there are bus/train tickets to be bought. Families book chusok 3 months in advance Bro. Took 6 hours driving to Seoul from Daejeon last sunday. Thats a peek at the madness.

My favorite holiday.

Seoraksan is THE place to celebrate my favorite holiday. The multi-pitch trad climbing is to die for, but there's sport and bouldering as well. And aid climbing. Last year, there were almost no crowds on Chuseok, since everyone was with their families.

Let's meet at Biseondae shelter (비선대). To get there, take a bus to the city of Sokcho (속초) on Korea's East Sea. From either bus station, take the 7 or 7-1 city bus toward Seoraksan (설악산)--1000 Won. Go to the entrance for Seoraksan National Park. Pay the entrance fee (2500 Won) and follow signs up the trail/road to Biseondae shelter. It was 5000 Won per night last year, and probably still is. They have food and supplies, but a little pricey--7000 Won for bibimbap. There are blankets, but bringing your own sleeping bag is preferable.

At Seoraksan, trad is rad. Bring any and all gear you have.

See you there

I don't really know any of you guys but, rick and i might be swinging threw there to hit up Gorak and a few other choice climbs A2O and maybe a few others. Nothing in stone yet as we may just head straight down south and then come back up north to finish Gorak off latter in the trip.
