Overview

Jaeyaksan (Mt.) is one of the mountains of Yeongnam Alps which is composed of steep peaks over 1,000m above sea level throughout the district of Ulsan, Miryang, and Cheongdo. Although its physical aspect is gentle, there are huge rock walls all around the summit. It has many sights such as Icy Valley, Pyochungsa (Temple), Cheungcheungpokpo (Waterfall), Geumgangpokpo (Waterfall), etc. The ridgeline path of eulalias connected to Jaeyaksan (Mt.), Sajabong (Peak), Cheonghwangsan (Mt.), Neungdongsan (Mt.), Sinbulsan (Mt.) and Chwiseosan (Mt.) is proud of its aesthetics of the mountain. Sajapyeong plateau on the east of Jaeyaksan (Mt.) is a spacious basin about 1,250,000 pyeong (a unit of area used in Korea), entirely covered with eulalias. It is the largest eulalia field in the country. The size of the place where eulalias densely grow reaches up to 50,000 pyeong.
Jaeyaksan (Mt.) is made up of Sumibong (Peak, 1,108m) and Sajabong (Peak, 1,189m) of Cheonhwangsan (Mt.). Sajapyeong plateau is linked with smooth elliptical hills between two peaks from the point of 800m above sea level. A eulalia in Sajapyeong is as short as up to the chest of an adult. It is only half as tall as the ones in banks of fields or on the streetside. A leaf is also thin and crude. The spike of a flower is short and stumpy as if it has been worn by rough wind of the summit. So it is not easy to see the willowy end of a spike by a breeze.
Ongnyudongcheon (Valley) is a valley open to the right before reaching Pyochungsa (Temple). Heungnyongpokpo (Waterfall) is 2km away along the path and Cheungcheung (Chingching) pokpo (Waterfall) made up of two 20-meter-high cascades one after another is delighted to meet mountaineers after a hike of another 1.8km. 2km further from Cheungcheungpokpo (Waterfall), Sajapyeong basin and Gosari elementary school now closed are widely known as an attraction of late fall. Meanwhile, you can find Geumgangpokpo (Waterfall), 25m in height with a bright rainbow after ascending about 1.5km to the north from Pyochungsa (Temple).
Going over to Chwiseosan (Mt.) from Pyochungsa at the foot of Jaeyaksan (Mt.), you can reach Tongdosa (Temple), going over Gajisan (Mt.), you'll see Seongnamsa (Temple), and going over Unmunsan (Mt.), Unmunsa (Temple). Thus although mountain paths are very steep, you can see transcendental look of Buddhist priests here and there. There is a thick pine forest around Pyochungsa (Temple). Stone pagodas and shrines are tidy. It is a noted Buddhist temple established by Wonhyo, which produced the Great Buddhist Priest Samyeong and the Buddhist priest Hyobong. Especially the Great Buddhist Priest Samyeong Pavilion has kept the articles left behind him and an ancestral sacrifice is performed every year. It is famous as his sacred ground for defense of the country. In the pavilion, there are many treasures and cultural properties such as a Cheongdonghabeunhyangwan (brass bowl and silver censer), National Treasure No. 75, and baldachin monk robe which Seonjo (King) bestowed, etc.
