Yeongbong Peak, supporting the two brothers known as Jungbong Peak and Habong Peak…

Woraksan Mountain has four faces. When seen from Songgye, the mountain presents the grand march of Ambong Peak, which connects to Yeongbong Peak, Jungbong Peak, and Habong Peak. Particularly, the rightmost Yeongbong Peak shows off its plunging cliffs, which are nearly 100 meters, and supports the two brothers that are known as Jungbong Peak and Habong Peak. In April, the view of Yeongbong Peak from Hansu-myeon Lodging Village is akin to watching a massive sailboat approaching on top of a street made of cherry blossoms in full bloom.

Four starting points for trails at the north, east, south, and west…

Woraksan Mountain has entry points to hiking trails in all four directions. The East entrance starts off at the Deoksan Ticket Office in Worak-ri, Deoksan-myeon, and goes up through Silleuksa Temple. The West entrance beings at the Dongchanggyo Hiking Support Center, which is near Hansu-myeon. The South entrance goes up from Deokjusa Temple and Maaebul Buddha in Deokjugol Valley. These three locations are opened even during times of fire prevention.

The path that begins at Mansu Service Area and goes up to Mansubong Peak and through Amneung all the way to 960bong Peak is incredibly dangerous. However, as it resembles a miniature version of Seoraksan Mountain’s Gongnyong Ridge, hiking across this path has a charm of its own. As the course is a long one that takes at least 7 hours to complete, anyone wishing to tackle it must prepare proper safety equipment, including rope, and travel alongside a seasoned veteran who has climbed Amneung before.

The easiest hiking trail for Woraksan Mountain begins at the Dongchanggyo Hiking Support Center and goes all the way up to the ridge’s col (2 hr. 40 min.) and Yeongbong Peak before coming down via Silleuksa Temple. The Dongchanggyo Bridge ~ Silleuksa Temple course rarely changes. However, it is mostly made up of stairs and far easier than the Deokjusa Temple course, which is made up of steep slopes, and as such offers a more convenient hiking trip.

*A bus headed towards Woraksan Mountain is available at the Dong Seoul Bus Terminal.

Woraksan National Park Nature Exploration Path

The dense Nature Exploration Path, which possesses a gradual topographical terrain and a valley, is home to over 200,000 wild flowers belonging to over 150 species. As such, visitors can view beautiful flowers and all sorts of animals and plants, including fish and birds, depending on the season.

Korean Berchemia of Songgye-ri, Jewon
