Chilgapsan (Mt. 561m above sea level) is a noted mountain with big and small peaks, valleys and also natural thick forests. It is designated as a provincial park in March 6. 1973 and the size of 32.542㎢ covers four myeons. The major attractions are the top, ninety nine valleys, Chilgapsanjang (the statue of Choe Ikhyeon, the monument of Chilgapsan song, etc), Cheonjangho (Lake), Janggoksa (Temple), Jeonghyesa (Temple), a natural recreation forest, Dorimsaji, Duryungseong (Fortress), etc.
Especially Chilgapsan has distinct characteristics each season. It boasts beautiful figures of wild royal azalea blossoms and cherry blossoms in spring. Its thick natural forest tranquilizes people's bodies and minds in summer. Harmony of various colors in fall, and a snow-covered scenery make us feel as if we were in Paradise. For all of them, it gives unique charm to mountaineers throughout the year. Seven trails which boast their own features have been developed for hiking in Chilgapsan. So mountaineers can select what is suitable for themselves. As a result, tourists have been steadily increasing. Also, a popular song, 「Chilgapsan」, has been famous in the whole country and several other countries in the world
