Overview

Hwangaksan (Mt.) is made up of four peaks. With Birobong (Peak, 1,111m above the sea) as the center, Baegunbong (Peak, 770m), Sinseonbong (Peak, 944m) and Unsubong (Peak, 740m) rise high and softly surround Jikjisa (Temple). It is flat, gentle, and smooth like silk. Old pines and oaks standing on both sides of the valley in the whole area of the entrance make a wonderful sight covering the sky. It is located in the middle of Sobaek Mountain Range, and 12km away from Gimcheon-si (city) to the west. As many cranes have visited here from time immemorial, it was called Hwanghaksan (Mt.) but it is written clearly as Hwangaksan on the board of Jikjisa (Temple) and Taengniji (a geography book). A thick pine tree forest, clear water in a deep valley, fall tints and snowflakes are beautiful. From the top, there are views of Minjujisan (Mt.) to the west, Sudosan (Mt.) and Gayasan (Mt.) to the south, Geumosan (Mt.) to the east, and Poseongbong (Peak) to the north.
