The 28m high Huibang Falls is a waterfall located below the Huibangsa Temple at Sobaeksan Mountain in Sucheol-ri, Punggi-eup, Yeongju-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do. It is located 700m above sea level sitting halfway up Sobaeksan Mountain. It is one of the must-visit tourist attractions that Sobaeksan Mountain has to offer, and is the No.1 waterfall in the whole Yeongnam (southeastern part of Korea) area.

The water from the falls comes from Yeonhwabong Peak (1383m), one of the sacred peaks of Sobaeksan Mountain. The water flows along Huibang Valley and then plunges into the rocks below with a big splash, creating a breath-taking view for visitors to behold.
