  • Information
    Tipped with strangely-shaped rocks and groves of old pine trees, Obongsan Mountain (779 meters) is brimming with natural beauty. Once called Gyeongunsan Mountain, it received its current name because of its five unique peaks (“obong” means five peaks). Visitors can enjoy hiking the rock ridges or cruising on the ferry around Soyangho Lake. At the base of the mountain on its southern side lies Cheongpyeongsa Temple, which was built in 973 the 24th year of the reign of King Gwangjong of Goryeo.
