  • Information
    Introduction
    The 28-meter high Huibang Falls is a waterfall located below the Huibangsa Temple at Sobaeksan Mountain in Sucheol-ri, Punggi-eup, Yeongju-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do. It is located 700 meters above sea level about halfway up Sobaeksan Mountain. It is one of the must-see attractions on Sobaeksan Mountain, and is the No.1 waterfall in the whole Yeongnam (southeastern part of Korea) area.

    The water from the falls comes from Yeonhwabong Peak (1383 m), one of the sacred peaks of Sobaeksan Mountain. The water flows along the Huibang Valley and then plunges into the rocks below with a big splash, creating a breathtaking view for visitors.
