Overview

Baegunsan (Mt.) holds three divine spirits.
Since time immemorial, it is known that a number of heroes has been born owing to the divine influence of Baegunsan (Mt.), in Gwangyang. Especially, it is said that Choe Sandu, Shinjae, a great scholar during Jungjong (king) of the Joseon dynasty received the energy of phoenix, and Weoraebuin (Madam Weorae) who became a queen of Mongolia right after Byeongjahoran (war between Mongolia and Joseon) had received the energy of fox, a wise animal. Now, it is said that a great wealthy one will come about receiving the energy of pig, and Gwangyang steel company and container storage facilities of Gwangyang harbor may catch your eyes.

+ Completion of Honamjeongmaek
Honamjeongmak connected from Baekdusan (Mt.)∼Geumgangsan (Mt.)∼Taebaeksan (Mt.)∼Songnisan (Mt.)∼Jirisan (Mt.) comes down to Maisan (Mt.)∼Naejangsan (Mt.)∼Mudeungsan (Mt.)∼Jeamsan (Mt.)∼Jogyesan (Mt.) and completes at Baegunsan (Mt.).

+ Forming 4 major valleys including Seomjingang (River)
All mountains of Honamjeongmaek in the form of "U" place Jirisan (Mt.) on the east side of the river and make Seomjingang (river), but the greatest may be Baekunsan (Mt.). It's because Baekunsan (Mt.) forms the last 150 li (distance unit) of water course and leads to Gwangyangman.

Also, Baegunsan (Mt.) forms 4 deep valleys (Seongbul, Donggok, Eochi, Geumcheon) with 4 ridges flowing down to the south and the east, which are 10km long. Baegunsan(Mt.) keeps 900 kinds of plants from warmer to colder climate which flourish in optimum climate. It holds the second most diverse plants and animals only next to Hallasan (Mt.). Also, in Baegunsan (Mt.), in the early spring a mystic mineral spring water called Gorosoe flows down and 100-year-old wild ginsengs are often discovered. It possesses rare plants such as Baegullan, Baegunbae, Baegunsoe ash tree, Baegun grease tree, Korean seungma, furred oriental bittersweets and Heories.
