NATIONAL NATURAL RECREATION FOREST

JEOLLA-DO PROVINCE

Bangjang-san Natural Recreation Forest

Bangjangsan(Mt.) is located at the border between Northern and Southern Jeolla Provinces(Jeollabuk-do and Jeollanam-do), at the end of the Noryeong Mountains. From the ancient times, this mountain, along with Mt. Jiri and Mt. Mudeung, was called the “Three Godly Mountains of Honam region [Jeolla Provinces]” since it stood in the plains, high up to the clouds. It is also the background of the “Bangdeung-san-ga(Song of Mt. Bangdeung [ancient name of Mt. Bangjang])”. Many hikers love to climb up to the top where it is famous for its view of the wide Gochang Plains and the West Sea, and every year, there are paragliding contests held at the mountain as well.
