    Gyeryong Mountain

Overview

It's located at the end of Geumnam Jeongmaek among Baekdu Daegan Mountain System. In 1968 it was designated as a second national park in Korea. At 845.1m above sea level, this independent noted mountain displays graceful features. It is called Gyeryongsan because it looks like a "dragon with a crest".
According to the administrative division, It is mostly located in Gongju-si (city), Chungcheongnam-do and parts of it covers Daejeon Metropolitan City and Nonsan-si (city). Gyeryongsan is a noted mountain the nation paid attention to because a national ancestral sacrifice had been performed here.
It was well-known as Gyeryong or Gyerim to the Tang dynasty across the sea in the era of the Baekje dynasty. It is the monadnock mountain, formed between Charyeong and Noryeong Mountain Rages. The Gunbong (Peak), formed by upheaval of quartz porphyry, is magnificent.
