Samaksan (Mt.) is located 10km away from Seoul. As you follow the way from the ticket booth to the valley, you can encounter 5 waterfalls of various sizes; Deungseonpokpo, Biseonpokpo, Seunghakpokpo, and Baengnyeonpokpo. From the 1st 10-meter-high waterfall to the 3rd waterfall, the stone steps with railings allow you to observe the vast wonder of nature with your own eyes. Although the mountain is not big, ridges coming down from 3 peaks such as Yonghwabong (Peak), Cheongunbong (Peak), and Deungseonbong (Peak) are composed of rock peaks, giving a fine view.
Deungseongyegok (Valley), the starting point of Samaksan (Mt.) hike trail, used to be a glacial area in ancient times, and Ongnyeotang (Pond) which holds the legend of the woodsman and the fairy from heaven will give you the pleasure of feeling the mystic nature.
Inside Samaksan (Mt.) are 7 temples including Heungguksa (Temple), Sangwonsa (Temple) and Samaksanseong (Fortress). As you follow up the hike trail, you arrive at the top, 654m above sea level, and the beauty of Euiamho (Lake) and Chuncheon-si (city) come into view.
From the top, the mountain in front of Heugguksa (temple) is Deungseonbong (Peak), and here lie the ruins of Samaksanseong (Fortress) and site of the palace built in the era of Maekguk (nation).
