Description
korea apartment
Mt. Sobaeksan is a branch of what could be called the backbone of Korea  - Mt. Taebaeksan, which spreads 100ri(approximately 3.93 km) long to the southeast.

In 1987, Mt. Sobaeksan was designated as National Park No.18. Its whole dimension is 320.50.  On the highest peak, called Birobong, there are many wild flowers and royal azaleas.  Between the 1st Yeonhwabong and Birobong is the Northwest Samyeon (1,200~1,350 m above sea level) where you can find the largest thriving yew tree community.

The west side of Mt. Sobaeksan is steep.  Streams from Nakdonggang River flows to Jukgyaecheon River, which is often used as a mountain climbing course. From Birobong, follow down Jukgyaecheon and you can enter the Seokryun Mine.  Go further and you will find Choamsa Temple. If you go still further down from here you will reach Seokcheon Pokpo Waterfall and Seonghyeolsa Temple. In this valley you can also see mountain trout, which can only be seen in clean waters.

If you go 4 km southwest of Birobong there is a leveled walkway that leads to Yeonhwabong. From the 1st Yeonhwabong you will pass the National Astronomical Observatory to the 2nd Yeonhwabong. 4km south of this mountain is a high valley called Jukryeong. On the east of the Mt. Sobaeksan 2nd Yeonhwabong there are old temples from the Silla Dynasty, the Huibangsa and Birosa Temples. At the entrance of Huibangsa Temple there is the Huibang Pokpo Waterfall, considered the most beautiful waterfall of Gyeongsangnam-do.

Featuring the valleys and ridgelines, Mt. Sobaeksan National Park has a fantastic view and is known to have many animals and plants and trees living on the mountain.
