MT. JIRISAN NATIONAL PARK
Address
Mt.Jirisan National Park, Sancheong-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do

Description
A place with beautiful scenery, Mt. Jirisan National Park was the first to be designated as a national park, in 1967. It is a mountain range of awesome scale, extending across the three provinces and five cities. The magnificent mountains and exceptional scenery make this one of the most famous mountains in Korea. 1,915 meters above sea level, Cheonwangbong Peak, considered to be the pillar of heaven is the main peak. Mt. Jirisan also features Banyabong and Nogodan, and is home to over 10 famous temples.  There's over twenty summits and valleys such as Baemsagol Valley, which are part of Mt. Jirisan Ten[Sceneries]. As this is the location of the most well-preserved virgin forest in Korea and wild life, the majestic and mystical mountain is often viewed with the highest respect.  There are many species of animal and plant life, and as the first place to cultivate tea in Korea, herbal medicine cultivation still flourishes here.  Mt. Jirisan was also where the Buddhist culture prospered, and there are a lot of cultural assets here, such as Silsangsa Temple(National Treasure No.7), Baekjangam and the Three-Story Stone Pagoda (National Treasure No. 26.). These regional cultural assets and the superb sceneries of nature give you a unique taste of local history and culture.  The weather is temperamental and only 80~100 days out of the year are clear and sunny, but the mist and fog create rare scenes not found elsewhere.
