Introduction
Seonunsan Mountain was originally called Dosolsan Mountain, but its name was changed to Seonunsan after the famous Seonunsa Temple was built in 577. In 1979, the mountain was designated as a provincial park. It has excellent scenic beauty with many interesting rocks and unique stones and deep in its thick forest lies the one thousand year old Seonunsa Temple.

Seonunsan is home to a number of precious national treasures such as the Songak (Natural Monument 367; ivy vines clinging to the rock face like a moss), the Jangsa Pine Tree (Natural Monument 354) next to Jinheung Cave, and the Camellia Forest (Natural Monument 184) behind the Daeungjeon Hall of Seonunsa Temple.

With an altitude of 336 meters, it’s is not as high as some of Korea’s mountains. It is however breathtakingly beautiful with its camellia blooms in the spring, cool valleys in the summer, and evening stars and foliage in the fall. It also boasts of a number of cultural treasures such as the Jinheung Cave where King Jinheung is said to have practiced asceticism, Yongmun Cave which was formed when Priest Geomdanseonsa of Baekje fought off a dragon, and Nakjodae, which is a great viewpoint for sunsets. Seonunsa Temple and the Dosoram Hermitage also make hiking trips worthwhile.
