(1) This is our second camping trip of the year... we're already getting cold nights for this month so this might also be our last.
This campground in full season would be a disaster. The sites are on top of each other. There seems to be no room for people to walk around their tents. The area is very nice though. We were surrounded by thick forest and a cool running stream. It also has a couple of interpretive trails for a nice relaxing walk.
(2) We didn't get enough sleep from the cold night at our campsite so this hike killed us. The trail from Seryeompokpo Falls is gradual but soon after turns into a stairs hike.
(2) This is the only part of the hike that may be a little challenging.
It was a steep hike all the way to the summit but we still made it in 3hrs. It was a nice day out. Not a lot of people on the mountain so we stayed at the top for a couple of hours and just soaked as much fresh air as we could.
This is Birobong Peak - 1288m/4226'.
After a nap, we started our painful descent down the stairs. The forest at this time is just beginning to change color. The view was quite interesting.
We got back to our campground after 2.5hrs.
