Nogodan Peak is the first gateway for hiking to Jirisan Mountain, and is one of the three main peaks of the mountain. It is situated to the west of the hiking ridgeline, and rises 1,507m above sea level. Nogodan Peak features Nogounhae (one of the mountain’s ten major scenic views) and myriad wildflowers, including wild azaleas, day lilies and various species of chrysanthemums. Notably, in July and August, a large number of tourists visit the Nogodan Peak area to admire the day lilies. The Nogodan summit is open to the public from May 15 to October 31, and is closed for the rest of the year for reasons of protection and conservation. After walking 1.5km (30 minutes) to Cheonwangbong Peak from Nogodan Pass, Dwaeji pyeongjeon comes into view, around which area Polygonatum odoratum var. pluriflorum (Miq.) Ohwi and Sanguisorba hakusanensis (Korean burnet), favorite foods of wild boars, grow. Wild boars frequently appear there to eat the roots of such plants, from which the name Dwaeji Pyeongjeon originates. After hiking for a 1.7Km (30 minutes), visitors will reach the cool spring of Imgeollyeong Pass, which flows all year round. Then, walking up the steep hill for 15 minutes to Norumok, visitors will reach a plain ridgeline. From there, up a little uphill road, a pass comes into view, namely the Norumok Three-Forked Road (Norumok Samgeori).
