How can it be possible one day hiking in Seoraksan national park from Seoul?

As you may know, Seoraksan locates east cost in Korea and it take 3 hours driving from Seoul. So many hikers use to stay a night to finish the peak of Seoraksan. However it is possible one day hiking and back to Seoul on same day.

I usually bring friends and people utilizing this way.

The cost for this is 500 USD(Up to two person) including

Taxi in the park
