Lonely Planet introduced Korea's Ulleungdo as one of the world's top 10 secret islands. Also Koreans think Ulleungdo is mystery island since it's really isolated and far from the mainland. However Ulleungdo is a volcanic island and it's located middle of the ocean so its average snowfall is about 4-5m during winter. And it's really peaceful and quite so it's going to be only you doing backcountry skiing to discover that place as enjoying peaceful volcanic mountain in Ulleungdo of South Korea.
