    Introduction
    Guryongpokpo Falls refers to the group of nine waterfalls, varying in size, located over a three-kilometer stretch of Sogeumgang River in Odaesan National Park. "Guryong" means nine dragons and legend has it that each of the waterfalls was occupied by a dragon. The sixth waterfall is particularly attractive. It is simultaneously the most magnificent and serene of the falls, which is why it is also known as the "Gentleman’s Waterfall." Two kilometers away from the sixth waterfall, is a curious-looking piece of rock called Manmulsang. The name literally means "tens of thousands of different looks." Some of these looks have earned it to other names such as "Giant Rock," "Phantom-Face Rock," "Iworam," and "Candlestick Rock’"
