Day 5, Nov/21/2012, 9.00 am: First itinerary for that day was the Seoraksan National Park, near the city of Sokcho. It was just a half an hour drive from Del Pino Resort. The bus stopped and we disembarked for a short walk to the park entrance. We relieved ourselves at a nearby toilet and then bought some bottles of water at the vendor stall near the entrance. Breakfast fare were also being sold but we were still full from the morning breakfast.

The morning air was cool and crisp as we make our way to Seoraksan National Park. At the entrance we stopped by a Half moon bear sculture. Half moon bear is the national animal of Korea. It is a huge bear and had a distinguished white half moon across it chess, hence the namesake. Here are the pictures I took to and around Seoraksan National Park:
