    Muhak Mountain

Overview

The mountain stands firmly behind Masan-si (city) and Jinhae-man just like a folding screen. It is the most beloved mountain of Masan-si (city) citizens. Muhaksan (Mt.) was named because it looks like a stork which is about to fly above, unfurling its wings. But its old name is Ducheoksan (Mt.). The western slope is steep, centering the eulaia covered main peak, looking at Gwangnyeosan (Mt.) face to face and unfolding main ridge stretched from north to south, while the eastern slope opens its feature and embraces Masan-si.
Northern ridge is connected to Cheonjusanyeok (Station) of Changwon-si (city) and gently goes up, unfolding Ducheokgol (Valley), and Aengjibatgol (Ridge). Southern ridge comes down to Mannaljae (Pass) through Daegoksan (Mt.) and drop its western end to Daesan (Mt.). The best part of Muhaksan (Mt.) is Hakbong (Peak), which applies to the head of a stork. The azaleas around Hakbong flourishing in spring display a grand beauty together with aesthetics of the rock peaks. Other mountains may forbid entry due to forest fire prevention period, but Muhaksan (Mt.) is always open, giving a greater charm during the dry season of spring.
Azalea field forms a splendid scenery at Hakbong, head of the stork and its surrounding ridges which apply to the shoulders of the stork. Azaleas here start to dye the foot of the mountain in the middle of April, and reaches its climax at the end of the month. On the top of the mountain, the South Sea and rock islands, Jangboksan (Mt.) of Jinhae first come into view. The contrasting sight of the blue South Sea and red azaleas is a spectacular sight to behold.
