    Introduction
    Palgongsan Natural Park is located close to Palgongsan Mountain, one of the larger mountains in the Taebaek mountain range. Palgongsan Mountain is located 20 kilometers northeast from downtown Daegu, where Nakdonggang River and Geumhogang River meet. The mountain has three peaks in a row: Birobong Peak in the center and Dongbong (aka Mitabong, 1,155 meters) and Seobong (aka Samseongbong, 1,150 meters) on each side.

    The park is within the administrative district of Dong-gu, Daegu and has four towns along its border including Yeongcheon-si, Gyeongsan-si, and Chilgok-gun. A number of Buddhist temples including Donghwasa, the headquarters of the 9th Buddhist Parish, are located in the area.

    The park has numerous rocks and valleys and is carpeted with azaleas in spring. In autumn many visitors flock to the park to admire the falls leaves on the trees lining the 16.3-kilometer-long road that runs through the park. With vibrant green leaves in spring and a delicate snowscape in winter, Palgongsan Mountain is an attractive destination for visitors throughout the year.
