Mt. Juwang National Park

Autumnal beauty of Mt. Juwang

Mt. Juwang or Mt. Juwang National Park in North Gyeongsang Province is famous with rare-looking majestic rocks and rocky summits which spread like movie screens with stately pine trees. Also waterfalls of Jubang Stream adds special flavor to its most spectacular beauty.

Mr. Juwang, which is 720.6 meter above sea level, is located in the ranges of Taebaek Mountain Ranges that form the backbone of Korea. The mountain borders Cheongsong County and Yeongdeok County within the North Gyeongsan Province. The mountain was designated as a national park on May 30. 1976.

Jusanji Pond (주산지: 注山池)

Autumn in Jusanji Pond

Jusanji Pond is a small reservoir situated in Mt. Juwangsan National Park. The picturesque pond is a man-made pond that was dug out a hundred years ago. The pond has been used for irrigation as well as for drinking water. Even if it is small in size — about 100 meters long, 50 meters wide and 7 to 8 meters deep — the scenic pond has never dried up from any drought.

Scores of willow trees, deeply rooted in the water and which are older than 150 years, surround the pond, making it one of the most beautiful pond in the nation. The pond is well-known as a location of a local film “Spring, Summer, Fall Winter, and Spring(2003).”
