This is such a lovely setting and the views must be stunning on a clear day. Unfortunately, it snowed during our visit which limited the view, but the ambience was wonderful.

For the mountain scenery, I would gladly pay for the cable car ride and climb up the mountain. You'll still have to hike up a short while after the cable car ride, but trust me it is worth it.

Just a few hike up from taking the cable car, this place offers one of the best views. North Korea can also be seen from afar.

Easy by cable car but have long waiting times. Ticket tells your boarding time so you can go around first. Cable car goes every 5 minutes. A little walk but not much space to go around. The views are great though.

Ride the cable car, hike for a few minutes. Trail is relatively easy. This is your warm up if you plan to climb up the Ulsanbawi trail. Note: when inside the cable car, best to get spaces that are closer to the windows to get...More
