Autumnal Beauty of Mt. Juwang in S. Korea
Autumn deepens on the huge rocks of Mt. Juwang or Juwangsan (ߣ) in South Korea's Cheongsong County around the end of October of 2016.

The beautiful mountain is 720 meters above the sea level. It is located in Juwangsan National Park (ߣء) in North Gyeongsang Province. It is part of the Taebaek mountain range.

Designated the 12th national park in South Korea in 1976, the mountain spreads over some 107 sq. kms. There are about 90 plant species and some 900 animal species.

The other peaks and mountains within the national park — Taehaengsan (933m), Daedunsan (905m), Myeongdongjae (875m), and Wanggeoam (907m) — are all inter connected in a horseshoe shape.

All together they are creating a beautiful mountain scenery as if they are natural fortresses.

Geologically, the lava flows of 70 million years ago made a round formation of ignimbrites, or volcanic tuffs, which shows how this unique and beautiful scenery was created.

Juwangsan has been well-known as the best scenic spot in North Gyeongsang Province and regarded as one of the top three rocky mountains in South Korea thanks.

According to a local legend, in the late Tongilsilla Dynasty, the rebel Judo, who called himself Juwang (King of Zhou) attempted a coup against Tang Dynasty of China and fled to this mountain.

Thereafter local people started to call the mountain Juwangsan, namely the Mountain of King Ju.
