  • Information
    Introduction
    Naejangsan is a famous mountain in Jeollabuk-do, and the best mountain in Korea for viewing autumn’s crimson leaves. The park is 76,032 sq. km. in size and was designated a National Park on November 17, 1971. Because of the bright crimson leaves that blanket Naejangsan Mountain in fall, the mountain is also referred to as "Geumgangsan of Honam."

    Inside the park, there are famous waterfalls, such as Dodeokpokpo Falls and Geumseonpokpo Falls, and temples such as Baekyangsa Temple and Naejangsa Temple. If you follow the valley left of the ticket booth, you can see the waters of Dodeokpokpo Falls, cascading down the cliff. If you go further along the valley you can see the waters of Geumseonpokpo Falls where even the gods have supposedly bathed. Baekyangsa Temple is both majestic and serene, surrounded by gulgeori trees that retain their lush green leaves even in winter, and also the bija trees. Along with Baekyangsa Temple, Naejangsa Temple is the place to visit during fall for its lovely autumn leaves. Besides these, there are about 760 kinds of local plants, designated Natural Monuments, and various wild animals living inside the park.

    Naejangsan National Park is beautiful not only in fall, but also in spring when the azaleas and cherry blossoms bloom, in summer when the mountain turns green, and winter when the rock cliffs cover themselves with snow. All throughout the year, different kinds of wild flowers bloom here.
