Andrew Chung was a fantastic guide who is friendly, caring and knowledgeable. He took great care of me and our group of 6 including 2 elders and 1 child. Great view at the Mount Seoraksan and the beach and pavilion at Sokcho was calming sand relaxing. Ah bai village was not so interesting. Just a touristy spot.

It could have been beautiful in December when the mountain is covered with snow or spring when its probably all green. Nonetheless, it's worth seeing.
