Korea National Parks

Wolchulsan Mountain is the smallest national park (42§´) in Korea, but it looks tall because it’s situtated on Yeongam Plain. The mountain is named Wolchul (rising moon) because the sight of the moon hanging over the mountain is particularly impressive. Wolchulsan Mountain is unique in that both temperate trees such as camellia and Quercus acuta as well as warm temperate trees like oriental oak and Stewartia koreana grow in the same place. In the mountain, there are Dogapsa Temple built by Doseon Guksa, the Buddhist priest regarded as the first fung shei expert in Korea, Muwisa Temple built in 875, and Maae Yeorae Jwasang (Seated Buddha Carved on a Rock located 700m above sea level)
