    Cheongwan Mountain

Overview

Located on the boundary between Gwansan-eup and Daedeok-eup, the whole mountain (723m) is covered with rocks and every peak rises high as if they thrusted the sky. Famous rocks such as Gibawi (Rock), Sajabawi (Rock), Bucheobawi (Rock), etc are boasting their features to each other. Especially as rocks sharply towering high on the summit look like the imperial crown decorated with jewels, it is called Cheongwansan (Mt.).
From the summit, an archipelago of the South Sea is displayed like a scroll of an Oriental painting. Wolchulsan (Mt.) of Yeongam, Jeamsan (Mt.) of Jangheung and Mudeungsan (Mt.) of Gwangju can be seen to the north in one view. When it's clear, Hallasan (Mt.) of Jeju-do emerges mystically on the sea. Fantastic rocks and stones along the ridgeline seem like a pavilion of the natural figurative art. Eulalias In over 50,000-pyeong field around the summit showcase a spectacular view. Every fall, "Cheongwansan Eulalia Festival" is held in the section of 4km between Yeondaebong (Peak), the summit of the Cheongwansan, and the ridgeline of eulalia on the mountain. On the summit is water which can make you cool with a sip. On the side of the mountain there used to be Cheongwansa (Temple built by Buddhist priest, Yeongtong, during the reign of King Aejang in the Shilla dynasty. Now a Buddhist sanctum, Chilsunggak (a Taoist shrine consecreated to the Big Dipper), and a temple dormitory still remain. Also there are many cultural properties such as a 3-tier stone pagoda (Treasure No.795) of Cheongwansa, a stone lamp (Tangible Cultural Properties of Jeonnam No.134) and a 5-tier stone pagoda (Tangible Cultural Properties of Jeonnam No.135).
