  • Information
    Introduction
    At 1,708 meters, Daecheongbong is the tallest peak in Seoraksan National Park and the third tallest peak in Korea following Hallasan Mountain (1,950 meters) and Jirisan Mountain (1,915 meters). It marks the point where Nae-Serok (inner Serok) meets Oe-Serok (outer Serok). Due to irregular climate and low temperatures, it is home to various stunted high mountain plants and rare plants, as well as a variety of wild birds, making it highly valuable in biological research. From Daecheongbong Peak you can view the fascinating landscape of Seoraksan Mountain in all four directions.
