The Granite Peaks of South Korea’s Seoraksan National Park
Tucked in the northeastern corner of South Korea sits the lush and majestic Seoraksan National Park.
The park, established in 1970 and currently under consideration for UNESCO World Heritage status, is home to more than 1,000 plant and 1,500 animal species making it a destination for nature lovers from around the globe.
Another draw is the area’s dramatic—and photogenic—granite cliffs, some of which climb as high as 5,600 ft (1,700m) above sea level.
