Overview

Famous for its Cheonghagolgyegok (Valley) and Bogyeongsa (Temple), Naeyeonsan is attended by 12 waterfalls such as Sangsaengpokpo (Waterfall), Gwaneumpokpo (Waterfall), Yeonsanpokpo (Waterfall) etc.
The whole mountain is linked with gentle ridges and mainly composed of soil. At the entrance of Naeyeonsan is Bogyeongsa (Temple) which was founded by Jimyeongbeopsa (Buddhist Priest) in the 25th year of Jinpyeongwang (King) in the Shilla dynasty.
When Jimyeongbeopsa came from studying in the Jin dynasty (ancient China), he brought an 8 sided mirror. He said the words of Buddha to Jinpyeongwang and buried the mirror in the pond under Naeyeonsan. He stood Geumdang, the main building of a temple and finally built a temple, and named Bogyeongsa. Naeyeonsan is good for hiking in summer because it is a place where mountains, valleys and sea can be enjoyed all at the same time. Between December and May, most hike trails are restricted for a period of forest fire prevention.
5 beaches, Hwajin, Wolpo, Chilpo, Dogu, Guryongpo are in the vicinity.
