Overview

Designated as a national park on March, 1970, it is one of the 8 views in Korea. Songnisan is located at the center of Sobaek mountain range deriving from Taebaek mountain range to the southwest, and is on the border of Boeun-gun, Goesan-gun of Chungbuk, and Sangju-gun of Gyeongbuk.
Songnisan (Mt.), at 1057m above sea level, is based on granites mixed with sedimentary metamorphic rocks. The part made of granites is sharp and that of metamorphic rocks deeply bowled so that they form a scenic masterpiece, which leads to other names such as Gwangmyeongsan (Mt.), Mijisan (Mt), or Little Geumgangsan (Mt.).
Unique peaks made of granites and vast forests covering the whole mountain form a splendid scenery along with Beopjusa (Temple), the ancient shrine since thousand years ago. There are 8 peaks, including Birobong (Peak), Gilsangbong (Peak), Munsubong (Peak), along with Cheonhwangbong (Peak), the highest peak at the center, and 8 stands such as Munjangdae, Yipseokdae, Shinseondae, and 8 stone gates.
There are Eunpokdonggyegok (Valley), Yongyudonggyegok (Valley), Ssangnyongpokpo (Water fall), Osongpokpo (Water fall), and Yonghwa hot spring. It is also a safe place to keep 672 kinds of plants and 344 kinds of animals including rare species including Jeongipumsong (Natural Monument No. 103), Manggae tree (Natural Monument No. 207), Korean black-naped green woodpeckers (Natural Monument No.242), and flying squirrels (Natural Monument No.328).
