Ageobong 악어봉 / Crocodile Peak, Woraksan 월악산, South Korea
A short but steep hike to exceptional views of Chungju-ho Lake from Ageobong / Crocodile Peak (442m). Take your camera.
My brother in law recommended this short but steep walk to Ageobong / Crocodile Peak for on our drive back from a day out in Woraksan National Park. It was totally worth the hour or so walking (return) for the spectacular views of Chungju-ho (Lake), and the various peninsulas that jut out, looking like crocodiles in the water and giving the peak its name.

In May 2023 the short but steep track to this viewpoint was still unofficial, but they were building stairs and forming the track, and this official trail is due to open in September 2023.
It starts opposite the Lazy Caiman / Crocodile Cafe and might take around an hour or so for the return trip. I’ve rated it easy because it’s short, but it will test the unfit because it’s quite steep. So not that easy.
