Bridge over river towards Soraksan

360° VR panorama of a bridge over a dry river, which links the main visitor area of Seoraksan National Park (설악산국립공원) to the north and Mount Sorak (설악산) to the south. Although the river was dry at the time this panorama was taken (in October), when the snow melts in the Spring, and in the rainy season, the river can swell and become very fast flowing.

From Wikipedia:

The nature reserve protects an area of 163.6 square kilometers and contains many notable high peaks measuring over 1,200 meters above sea level including the highest peak of Soraksan, Daecheongbong, which has an altitude of 1,708 meters. The nature reserve contains mountain ranges of dissected granite and gneiss and is characterized by spectacular rocky hills and ridges. The magnificent natural beauty of Soraksan and the mountain ridges is due to these geographical features. Annual precipitation in Inner Soraksan is 1000 millimeters and 1300 millimeters in Outer Soraksan.
