Since a king named Gal took refuge there, it was named Galwangsan (Mt.), and later has been called Gariwangsan (Mt.). It is 1,561 meters above the sea level. There lie the nation's top natural broadleaved forests, as well as rare species, such as Japanese Yew and Mountain Ash all over the mountain. The Wild Ginseng Peak monument has been found and preserved with clean water in the Hwoidong Valley. That is where local residents extracted wild ginseng to present to the king as tribute from the region. It creates a picturesque scenery in great harmony with neighboring forests. In addition, the Forest Culture Recreation Hall and the Nature Learning Hall are recommended for forest experience and training not only for families but also for youths.
