In addition to admiring the natural beauty of the park, you can also visit Daejeonsa Temple or attend the annual Juwangsan Royal Azalea Festival, as described in the article by News Bytes.

Soraksan National Park also attracts many tourists. The main highlight of this park is its beautiful mountain ranges, waterfalls, and natural landscape. Located in the northeastern part of the country, the park is filled with large pine and oak trees. Tourists visit this place to watch the sunrise over the Land of Morning Calm and to see the colors of the leaves change in the fall.

Among the most famous parks in the country is Hallasan National Park, the southernmost national park in South Korea, and one of the most popular attractions on Jeju Island. It is known not only for the highest point in the country but also for the shield volcano that emerged millions of years ago. In the park, visitors can explore seven different hiking trails of varying difficulty (from 1.3 kilometers to almost 10 kilometers).

Dadohaehaesang National Park is one of four marine and coastal national parks in South Korea. Here, you can observe various species of plants, birds, and marine fish. The main attractions are the three islands of Hongdo, Haeksando, and Baekdo. The park is renowned for its stunning red rock formations.

Bukhansan National Park is one of the most popular national parks in South Korea, attracting over five million visitors annually. Here, tourists can enjoy scenic hiking trails, as well as temples and fortresses. Visitors can also stay inside temples among monks and experience the Buddhist way of life.

And finally, another famous South Korean park is Seoraksan. Located in the middle of the Taebaek Mountain Range, the park derives its name from Mount Seorak. The park is characterized by rugged terrain and lush green trees. It also contains three beautiful valleys: Hwajeong, Seonnyu, and Ssanggok.

Another major attraction is the ancient Baeopsa Temple at the foot of the mountain range. Seoraksan National Park is known as the most visited place in spring.
