Songnisan National Park was designated as the 6th national park in Korea in 1970 and was called “Second Geumgang” or “Sogeumgang( Small Geumgang)” because of its spectacular beauty.
This rocky mountain is located across many areas in Chungbuk and Gyeongbuk provinces and spans across a total area of 274.541㎢. The main peaks Cheonwangbong, Birobong, and Munjangdae are connected along the baekdudaegan mountain ranges (Backbone of Korea) with well developed stone peaks and ridges.
Songnisan is connected to other adjacent mountains, and based around Cheonwangbong (1,058m) in the south, eight peaks are stretched out like a bow including Birobong, Munjangdae, and Gwaneumbong.
Songnisan has Natural Treasures such as the jeongipumsong(The pine having the position of the second grade in an official post), Otter, Flying squirrel, and Mandarin duck,. In addition, there are many bird species that are designated for the purpose of protection by the Ministry of Environment as well as endangered animals such as the Small-eared cat and Marten,.

What You Can Expect
It is the course most favors by visitors to Songnisan Mountain. Earlier, it was called Unjangdae (meaning a peak covered by clouds). The name was changed to the current one, after King Sejo composed a poem portraying the beautiful surroundings here. Munjangdae Peak (1,054m high) offers a spectacular sight.
The course features: Cheongbeopdae Peak (or Chilhyeongjebong Peak); Sinseondae; Ipseokdae, which offers an open view of the Sinseondae ~ Cheonwangbong Peak; Birobong Peak; a bamboo colony leading to Cheonwangbok Peak.
Cheonwangbong Peak may look small, but offers a spectacular view. Munjangdae, Gwaneumbong and Myobong Peak come into view in the westerly direction. Hyeongjebong Peak and Gubyeonsan Mountain are seen in the southerly direction. Rain water flowing down from here in the easterly, westerly and southerly direction joins Nakdonggang, Namhangang, and Geumgang Rivers, respectively.
Nearby perpendicular, rocky cliffs are quite spectacular scenery.
