Description
The second series of Celebrated Mountains of Korea introduces Mt. Jirisan, the grand mountain at the southern end of the Baekdu mountain range, which originates from Mt. Baekdusan in North Korea.

Mount Jirisan possesses the largest single mountain area in South Korea, spanning over 471.758sq-km in North and South Jeolla provinces and South Gyeongsang province. Even without having to mention its 10 most impressive scenes viewed from different spots on the mountain, including sunrise from Cheonwangbong peak, clouds from Nogodan, sunset from Banyabong peak, royal azaleas at Seseok, the moon from Byeoksoryeong, autumn leaves in Piagol Valley, the enchanting scenery at Yeonhabong peak, Buril Falls, Chilseon ravine, the clear water of the Seomjingang River, Mt. Jirisan is deeply rooted in the hearts of Koreans as a sacred mountain

Baraebong Peak
Late April every year, Baraebong Peak of Mt. Jirisan proudly displays strong pink tints of royal azalea. The royal azaleas blossom along the mountain ridge from the peak down to Pallangchi, creating groups of blossoms which are as neat as if trimmed by people. The groups of royal azaleas were created by sheep grazing in the 70s, as they ate the sprouts of trees and left those of the royal azalea, which were poisonous.
