  • Information
    Introduction
    Cheonghakdong Village, located at the southern foot of Samsanbong Peak on Jirisan Mountain, maintains the traditional style of daily Korean life. ‘Cheonghak’ means a community where a crane of blue feathers lives.
    Cheonghakdong is one area that was left virtually untouched throughout much of Korea's turbulent history.
    It is an inland village where electricity came into the village only 20 years ago. Over 200 residents of this community maintain the custom of wearing hair in a knot, wearing Korean traditional clothing, and doing farm work in the traditional manner of living.
    Next to Chunghakdong Village is the holy ground to worship Hwanin, Hwanwung, Dangun and a monastery called Samseong-gung. There are about 1,500 various types of stone towers, which took 15 years to finish. These towers are in a restoration process, to pile stones up on the holy ground called Sodo, the place where ceremonies to praise the heavenly god were held during the Three Kingdoms Era. The site is still under construction, and the restoration will continue until 3,333 folk poles are finished. To enter the sanctuary, you must strike the gong at the wooden post three times and wait for an ascetic to guide you. Hats with English writing on it should be taken off, and one person of the party should wear the proper garment on behalf of the group. When the palatial residence is shown, the ascetic solemnly requests to the group to show respect. After the showing of respect, the group can tour freely.
