Summary Info

This mountain originates from Mt. Taebaek, and rises at Chupungryong on the way to Hallryeosudo again. As its ten high peaks are in a line on its main ridge connected from Chonwangbong to Nogodan, it is considered as one of the outstanding mountains of Korea. This inland area was designated in 1967 as the first national park. The total area is 471.75㎢ making it the largest national park. This mountain is deeply ingrained in our emotion and it is called the spiritual mountain of Korea, it has a variety of names such as Duryu, Bangjang, Jiri, Bulbok, Banyeok, and Jeokgusan, which shows the internal pain of Mt. Jiri. According to『Donggukyeojiseungram』, as mountains from Mt. Baekdu stop at Mt. Jiri, it was called Duryu. However, some say that it was called Dulleo, Duru, and Duryun as it is a mountain with a large area. In a Buddhist term, a name of it was derived from the Bodhisattva of wisdom, but later it was interpreted as a mountain with lots of wise men. Some say that as Mt. Jiri is large and magnificent, The name Jiri was derived from 'Jiruhada' meaning boring. Mt. Bangjang means a mountain with three gods governing childbirth. 『Samguksagi』and 『Samgukyusa』recorded the Chinese characters of Mt. Jiri differently and『The History of the Goryeo Period』published in the Joseon period revised to 'Jirisan(智異山)'. 'Jirisan(地利山)' was derived from the goddess of wisdom, 'Bulbok(不伏)' and 'Banyeok(反逆)' were derived from Soji which did not reach the god in the air when it was burned only in Mt Jiri while Lee Seong-gye prayed to God to establish a dynasty of Joseon. So he considered Mt. Jiri as a mountain of disobedience and a place of treason and exile. A monk named Seosan said that 「Mt. Geumgang is outstanding but not magnificent while Mt. Jiri is magnificent but not outstanding」. Mt. Jiri is sharp and not beautiful, but it looks magnificent. Its main peak is Chonwangbong(1,915m). Its other peaks are Banyabong(1,732m) and Nogodan(1,507m). The long ridge connecting Chonwangong to Nogodan has ten high peaks whose height is above 1,500m and about 20 peaks whose height is 1,000m. It has well-developed plateaus with spectacular views of wild flowers and azaleas.
