Korea National Parks

In Sobaeksan Mountain, the area between Birobong Peak (1,439m) and Yeonhwabong Peak (1,394m) where the National Observatory is situated has the most beautiful scenery. The yew forest near Birobong Peak with 388 trees that are between 200~800 years old is designated as a natural monument. Buseoksa Temple is a perfect place to visit historical sites while enjoying nature since it has a number of National Treasures and Cultural Properties such as Muryangsujeon, stone lanterns, Seated Statue of Sojo Yeorae, Mural Painting of Josadang, Three-Story Stone Pagoda, Danggan Jiju, and Goryeo Gakpan.
