Volunteer Services

Jirisan Mountain was the first mountain designated as a national park in Korea in 1967. It has high and steep peaks such as Banyabong Peak, Nogodan, and Cheonwangbong Peak (1,915m), which is the third highest peak in Korea next to the ones in Baekdusan Mountain and Hallasan Mountain. Past Gurye and Hadong on the skirt of the mountain and towards the Southern Sea flows a beautiful lake called Seomjingang. A research project for the restoration and management of Asiatic black bears was launched on a full scale in 2002.
