Snow covered Mudeungsan Mountain National Park


The most beautiful aspect of mountaineering is said to be winter climbing.

Here, hikers trek upward along the trail as they enjoy a magnificent view of the winterscape above the tree line at Mudeungsan Mountain National Park in Gwangju City, on Jan. 16, three days before Daehan (대한, 大寒), traditionally the coldest day of the year by the traditional agricultural calendar.

Mudeungsan National Park is a mountain park lining the edge of Hwasun-gun, Damyang-gun and Gwangju. Mudeungsan Mountain (1,186m) features three rock peaks called Cheonwangbong, Jiwangbong, and Inwangbong, also known as the “Jeongsang Three.”

Mudeungsan’s gradual slope makes it an easy climb for all. Locals once worshiped Cheonwangbong Peak as it was considered a mountain of God. Among the more majestic of these sites are the Seoseokdae, Gyubong, and Ipseokdae peaks. At the base of the mountain are several famous temples including Yaksaam, Jeungsimsa, and Wonhyosa. Mudeungsan Mountain is also known for its beauty throughout the year. The fall autumn leaves of Gyubongam and eoksae grass of Baekma Ridge are quite spectacular. In the winter, snow and ice on the mountain create exquisite scenery as well.
