    Cheonseong Mountain

Overview

Cheonseongsan (Mt. 922m) makes the boundary of Ungsang-eup, Sangbuk-myoen, and Habuk-myeon. It is the most noted mountain in Yangsan-si (city). Also Cheonseongsan (Mt.) has been called little Geumgangsan (Mt.) because it has a number of deep valleys and waterfalls and beautiful views since time immemorial. Its name originated from a story that Great Buddhist Priest Wonhyo preached the Avatamska Sutra to 1,000 monks from the Tang dynasty here and made them become saints.
The whole mountain is covered with azalea and royal azalea blossoms in spring. Especially as Hwaeom swamp and wheat field swamp are the only places in Korea that still preserve ecology of rare flowers, plants (a dew grass) and insects. This mountain is called the thesaurus of ecosystem which cannot be found in any other countries of the world. Wild edible greens from Cheonseongsan taste peerless enough to be presented to the king in the past. As long eulalias cover the whole mountain in fall, it has been in the spotlight as a fantastic hike trail.
Especially as its summit is the place where you can see sunrise of the East Sea first in the Korean peninsula, many tourists come to see a spectacular view of sunrise from all over the country.
