Geumsusan – Named by Teogye Lee Hwang

Geumsusan’s (1,015.8m) original name was Baegunsan. However, when Teogye Lee Hwang (1501-1570), who was the governor of Danyang-gun during the mid-Joseon era, saw the mountain in the fall, he exclaimed, “the mountain’s beauty looks as if it is embroidered in silk,” and changed the name of the mountain to Geumsusan. The mountain’s old name “Baegun” still remains with the village south of the mountain, which is known as “Baegun-dong.”

Geumsusan is the highest peak in a range of mountains that reach to Jecheon city limits to the north and Malmoksan Mountain (720m) at Jeokseong-myeon, Danyang-gun to the south. Along the central mountain route, mountains ranging 700-800m in height such as Jakseongsan Mountain (848m), Dongsan Mountain (896.2m) and Malmoksan Mountain are in place. Sections extending to the west feature tall and beautiful mountains such as Jungbong Peak (885.6m), Sinseongbong Peak (845.3m), Jeoseungbong Peak (596m), and Mangdeokbong Peak (926m).

In the valley where Eodangigol Valley and Jeongnamgol Valley meet lies hidden Yongdam Falls and the Seonnyeotang Pond, both magnificent sights of Geumsusan Mountain. The two sites hold a legend that states, “the emperor of the ancient Zhou Dynasty was washing his face when he saw a waterfall that was reflected on his washbasin. The emperor sent his subjects to the east in search for the waterfall, and the waterfall they found was Yongdam Falls and Seonnyeotang Pond. Inside Seonnyeotang Pond, which was called Sangtang, Jungtang, or Hatang, lived a blue dragon that was the protector of Geumsusan Mountain. Once a Zhou subject realized that Geumsusan Mountain was a special mountain and built a grave at the peak, the blue dragon broke through the stones and ascended to the sky in anger.”
