Description
korea apartment
Mt. Songnisan National Park is composed of Mt. Songnisan and Hwayang, Seonyu, and Ssanggok Valleys. Mt. Soknisan has the honor of being one of Koreas most beautiful sites.  It starts from a southwesterly mountain branch from Taebaeksanmaek and stands in the middle. The granite peak of the Mt.Songnisan stand sharply against the sky, but Toejeokam is hewn deeply and makes a deep contrasts  between the peak and the valley.  Mt. Songnisan is also called Sogeumgangsan as well.  
On Mt. songnisan is one of the largest temples in Korea called Beopjusa Temple.  At the temple, there is a Maaeyeoraeuisang carved on a rock. Monk Uisang refers to a sitting Buddha statue, and a Maaeyeoraeuisang describes the Buddha sitting on a lotus flower, which is the picture carved on the rock. The years have damaged the picture quite a bit, but the original picture can still be seen clearly.  In any picture taken of Beopjusa Temple, one object that always gets included is the Cheongdongmireukbul, which is the largest of its kind in the world.  Because Mt. Songnisan has such a great temple in its midst, it possesses numerous treasures and National Monuments befitting its 5,000 year history.  Beopjusa Temple is the blossoming of a long history of Buddhist culture developed on Mt. Songnisan.
Mt. Songnisans deep valleys invite countless mountaineers and the many Natural Monuments has made it a major tourist attraction.  The mountain is beautiful all year round, with mountain cherry blossoms in the spring, green pine forest in the summer, and the lovely autumn leaves in the fall.
