[KOREA Travel] Seoraksan National Park and Skiing YongPyong Ski Resort


Time to continue my Korea Day 2 post, on the second day we go to Seoraksan National Park and spend most of my time at Yong Pyeong Ski Resort. The weather while I at Korea is around minus 3 to 6 7 degrees at day time. For my first part of this post, I will post photos I took at Seoraksan National Park.



๐Ÿ“ Daemyung Delpino Golf & Resort & Hotel

Our hotel for two days one night. It is an apartment room where there are kitchen and dining space in our room. 




We are late on the morning as the alarm we set is wrong timing! But luckily we already pack all our luggage and prepare your outfit for today. Quickly we wash up and move our luggage to the G floor, rush to the breakfast area. To our surprise, outside of our breakfast place is really pretty. Took some shots here too!


Interesting rock placement in the center of the whole resort.



๐Ÿ“Seoraksan National Park







Seoraksan National Park is a national park in South Korea. It listed by the South Korean government with UNESCO as a tentative World Heritage site. This whole park is really calm and peaceful vibes. Since is still winter season, you can't really see any greens or blue sky here. But still, there is still a lot of nice scenery around, with the mountains behind and some Korea old building around. This place considers well-taken care and maintains its natural beauty.

When we are there, we saw a lot of senior Korean citizen come here to go for a hike too. All of them looking so healthy and walking steadily too. 




I like that at Seoraksan National Park, the crowds are not that much. You can have a quiet walk around the park and even sit down for some coffee or tea when you are tired too. Even though the trees here are pretty much bald but still we still enjoy the breeze weather here with really beautiful scenery along when we walk.



Moving on to our next activities after our lunch, SKIING activities is up! While we are going to Pyeong Chang, the area is raining and there are high chances of we will able to experience snow. Because the tour guide told us, every time after rain there will be snowing! We are all super excited when we see snow the first time and my husband is so happy because one of our reason here to Korea is for snow too!


Although the snow is not very heavy, we are still really excited to be able to experience snow. 


๐Ÿ“Yong Pyong Ski Resort

After we change to skin outfit and we are here at Yong Pyong Skii Resorts for our ski activities. The crowds here are quite pack since we are here during Friday.


Check out the crowds here, regards it is full of tourist and Koreans are here too!



The weather is really cold and here's us with a full cover skiing outfit.


After for some time, we are all super sweaty with the scarf, headpiece and my gloves too. We just took off everything and enjoy our skiing time to the max. Skiing is a tiring extreme sport, therefore you can easily sweat and get exhausted.



Here how I brake during skiing time! It is not so easy to control the direction of skiing or even to stop it. I keep falling down for a few times and it is really hard to stand back up again. Even wearing the skiing shoes it is so hard to walk on the snow and wear back to the skiing pad. Not to mention, with the downslope it is even harder to go back up again and skied down from the top. I guess my husband having the most fun because he walks up to the slope and skiing all the way down from the top. When he does not know how to brake and keep fall to brake himself haha!

Things to take note

1. Stay Hydrated and Apply Sunblock
2. Make sure wear your Skiing suits with lots of pockets zip that you can store your phone and money
3. Wear waterproof gloves
4. Don't be afraid of falling down.
5. Go on a higher slope and enjoy your skiing!






After a good old 2 hours 30 minutes of skiing, we walk around and took some nice photos with the snow and the skiing slope. 








I did not realize that I took so many photos after our fun skiing activity. I guess is hard not to not taking photos or enjoying our self when there is snow around us. We didn't go to the top by the cable car which we can't further explore what's up there. For the cable car, you will need to pay an extra fee to take the cable car and go up. 


Lastly, I am really glad that we have our honeymoon trip here in Korea. Experiencing snow together and skiing too! I would definitely want to go to another country for snow again. Although under the cold breezy weather definitely not the best, but I do want to enjoy more snowing moments too.
