Mt.Odaesan National Park was
designated as a national park in 1975. Mt. Odaesan was named so
because of the following 5 plateaus; Manwoldae, Jangryeondae,
Girindae, Sangsamdae and Jigongdae.
Featuring the 1563m high
Birobong Peak, Mt. Odaesan spreads southwest with Mt. Sodaesan,
Horyeong Peak and Mt. Sogyebangsan. The east side is connected with
Sangwang peak and Duro Peak, which are over 1,000m high. The
representative temple of Mt.Odaesan, Woljeongsa Temple, was named
after the fact that the full moon that rises above Manwoldae (Mt.
Dongdaesan) is particularly bright. At this temple the
famous Octagon shaped 9-story pagoda (National Treasure No.48) and
the Stone Seated Buddha Figure (National Treasure No.139) is
preserved. Also, Jeokmyeolbogung of Woljeongsa is where
Monk Ja Jang preserved the Sakyamunis noble
relics. Inside Woljeongsa Temple, follow the fir trees 5
km east, and you will reach Sagoji where Yeonggamsa Temple
stands. Mt. Odaesan has the largest natural woods of
Korea. There are many wild animals and plants living here. The
Birobong area is famous for the Nuncheunkbaek trees and Yew tree
forests. The royal azelea and Geumgang Chorong from Duro
peak to Sangwang Peak are famous and there are animals such as
boars, musk deer, turtledoves and colorful woodpeckers there.
