Overview

There are many attractions in the mountain; Haksodae where a blue crane and a white one lived together, Geupsudae rising high, which seems to be about to fall on the front, Giam where Juwang (King) and Majanggun (General) fought hard each other, Mangwoldae where the son and daughter of Juwang (King) appreciated the moon, Wanggeoam (Temple) with steep features where the East Sea is seen in the distance, legendary Juwanggul (Cave) where Juwang(King) hid and died, and several waterfalls, mineral springs, etc. They all attract visitors.
Especially a forest reaching up to Byeolbawi (Rock) from Juwangam (Rock) is about 13km wide and reminds of a maze in the primitive.
There are several cultural assets such as Daejeonsa (Temple) built in the 12th year during the rein of Munmuwang (King) (A.D. 672) in the Shilla dynasty about 1,300 years ago, Baengnyeoam (Temple) named after Princess Baengnyeon, Juwang (King)'s daughter, etc. Plant stocks in Juwangsan (Mt.) are mongolian oaks and pine stock which make beautiful sceneries brighter and rare plants such as a kind of supplejack, iris with yellow pattern, and round leaves amaranth of pheasant are special attractions that remain in visitors' memory.
The Jubanggyegok (Valley) trail is visited by most people in Juwangsan (Mt.) national park because representative natural sceneries are concentrated here. And also two other trails frequently visited by mountaineers are a route to ascend on Gamebong (Peak), Juwangsan (Mt.) and Janggunbong (Peak) and the other to cross Woroegyegok (Valley) and Jeolgolgyegok (Valley).
