Overview

Chungnyeongsan (Mt.) is a rocky mountain formed closely in front of Hangang (River) as a part of Gwangju Mountain Range after rising as Myeongjisan (Mt.) and Unaksan (Mt.) in Gapyeong-gun. It is said that 'one day the first King Yi Seonggye who founded the Joseon dynasty went to hunt in vain. A chaser in hunting said that the mountain was sacred, so he should perform a religious service for the god of the mountain.
So after performing it on top of the mountain, he got a wild boar.' From that time on, it has been called Chungnyeongsan (Mt.) which means the mountain where the sacrifice to the god was performed. Since various trails between Chungnyeongsan (Mt.) and Seorisan (Mt.) are developed to make it easier to hike, you can reach the top in a short time to be content. In a thickly wooded big cone pine forest there are 16 houses in the forest with 21 rooms offering an opportunity to share emotions with your family for a night.
As it has many attractions each season such as royal azalea blossoms on the top in spring, cool valleys harmonizing rocks and forests in summer, beautiful fall tints, and a snow-covered scenery in winter. It is the best recreation forest in the national capital region.
