NATIONAL NATURAL RECREATION FOREST

GYEONGGI-DO PROVINCE

Unaksan Mountain Natural Recreation Forest

Unaksan (Mountain) stands 935.5 m high above the sea level with strangely shaped rocks and peaks. For its graceful shape, it is called Sogeumgang (meaning a little “Geumgang” known for the most beautiful valley). Its stout rocks rise up out of cloud-topped peaks, and its decideous forest decorates the sky view with colored leaves in autumn. A local autumn leaf festival which takes place here around mid October attracts visitors by offering various activities such as mountain spirit ritual, Samulnori performance (traditional percussion quartet), flower exhibition, special products promotion, etc. Moreover, in spring valleys and rocks are embroidered with lily magnolia in mid April, and azalea and mountain magnolia in May. These flower-embroidered trails offer a magnificent view. Thus, Unaksan, one of the top five mountains in the central region is loved by a lot of people. Interestingly a valuable celadon dated back the end of Goryeo or early Joseon era was discovered and its kiln site is well-restored as the first kiln along the Hangang(river). A outdoor classroom and a playground are arranged under pine trees, offering a relaxation area.
