Yes, it was strenuous ascent up to the peak but it was worth it. Steep zigzag staircase, multiple stops for us, while the elders seemed to move at a faster pace than us. Our guide told us it will take about 25-30 minutes to reach the peak. We took 40 minutes to reach the very top, famously known as ‘Sunrise Peak’; official name, Seongsan Ilchulbong, one of UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.
