Introduction
Yeongchwisan Mountain is not very high (510 meters above sea level), but the mountain has long been deemed as a spiritual guardian of the Yeosu peninsula. During the old days, people held rituals for rain or offered wishful prayers. Geumseongdae and Dosolam are two Buddhist places of worship on the mountain.

Mount Yeongchwisan is widely known as the first place in Korea where azaleas begin to bloom in the spring. The mountain is one of the top three most famous places in Korea for azalea blossoms. As Mount Yeongchwisan is not very high, taking any hiking course will lead you to the peak within about four hours. The mountain is a perfect place for family travelers to go hiking. In April each year, the azalea festival is held in the mountain. The festival offers a variety of programs including a ritual for the god of the mountain, a writing contest for students, a photo contest, and Miss Azalea beauty pageant. During the festival, visitors can enjoy various events and local foods.
