Palbongsan Mountain

Palbongsan Mountain is long and thin, like a folding screen, and stands tall and proud. The mountain is called Palbong, which means “eight peaks” in Korean because it has eight peaks in a row.

The mountain is called Palbong, which means “eight peaks” in Korean because it has eight peaks in a row. There are nine peaks, but the smallest one was left out.

Palbongsan (Mt. Palbong) is only 327m tall, but it has a lot of exciting places. First, the Hongcheon River is all around, so you can swim, fish, and camp there. Second, “Palbong” means “eight peaks,” which are all very hard to climb. All of them are big rocks. But don’t worry about rock climbing because there are steps and ropes at every necessary point.
Also, every peak is gorgeous, and the view from the top is excellent. Reaching each peak’s top and back down will take about 3 hours.

Palbongsan is in Hongcheon, which is in Kangwondo. It takes 2 hours to drive north from Seoul to get there.

The highest point is the third peak, which is 362 meters high and has a beautiful view and fresh air, making it a great place to hike for 3 hours and rest at the top. Since there is another mountain in Hongcheon with the same name, this one is usually called “Seosan Palbongsan.”
