The distance between the Georim Control Center and Seseok Villa is 6km, and it takes about 3 to 4 hours to cover the distance. Except for some short segments of the course, most of the trail is on a gentle slope, and this makes it easier to reach the main ridge compared to other courses. If you walk about 2 hours from Georim Valley towards the top of the mountain, the hiking trail will take you out of the valley and to the mountain ridge on the right side. From this point on, you have to climb the stairs along the mountain ridge for about 30 minutes until you see a small spring (Chamsaem) and a huge rock. The top of the rock offers a panoramic view of Georim Valley. On a clear day, you can see as far as Samcheonpo on the South Coast of the Korean Peninsula. Walk about one more hour from this place, and you’ll reach Seseok Shelter.

Seseok Pyeongjeon is the final destination of the Georim Course situated at the saddle of the mountain between Yeongsinbong Peak and Chotdaebong Peak. It’s a flat piece of land with lots of small stones, so some Koreans call it the ‘Jangdol Pyeongjeon’, with the word ‘jandol’ meaning small stones and ‘pyeongjeon' meaning flat land. In the past, this used to be the best place to view royal azalea blossoms. From the end of May and early June, this plot of land is full of royal azaleas, as there are tens of thousands of royal azalea shrubs in the area. Thus the azaleas in Seseok is one of the ‘Ten Scenic Views of Jirisan Mountain'.

The Seseok Shelter located in Seseok Pyeongjeon is the largest and most modern shelter in Jirisan Mountain. Built in 1996, the shelter can sleep up to 190 people. That’s why lots of hikers come to this place in the hiking season.
