It even touches Okyangbong (621m) and Sujeongbong (453m) and ends near Seosan Maae Samjonbulsang (rock-carved buddha triad). Lying cozily in this mother-like mountain range, the recreation forest is the best resting place. The Younghyun valley is one of the treasured ecosystem where almost endangered species live including natural monument no.452 golden bats, crawfish, lightning bug, and an eagle-owl. Yellow lycoris gather in group along the path to Baekamsaji. Many historical sites along Naepo trail in the forest offer the best place for youth to learn about culture and nature. Choi Chi-won, renowned writer in the Silla era, established “Gangdang(auditorium)”and taught writing so this place is called “Gangdangi”village.
