  • Information
    Introduction
    Munjangdae Peak (문장대), located in Sangju, Gyeongsangbuk-do, is a rock summit 1,054 meters above sea level. The peak is so broad that 50 adults can sit on it at the same time. Within the rocks, you will find Seokcheon Pond, which never dries up. The peak used to be called “Unjangdae” because the summit is always covered with clouds and mist. A legend says that King Sejo of Joseon Dynasty supposedly recited a poem on the summit.

    Munjangdae has a great view of Cheonhwangbong, the highest peak of Mt. Songnisan (속리산), and you can also see Gwaneumbong, Chilseongbong, Sirubong, Tugubong, Munsubong, and Birobong peaks. In autumn, you can enjoy breathtaking fall foliage along the trail, which begins at Hwabuk-myeon, Sangju. You can also find many cultural heritage sites including Janggak Falls, Seongbuksa Temple, Osong Falls and Gyeonhwon Fortress.
