Writer Kim Ju-yeong

Juwangsan National Park has been praised as the artwork by the heaven as it has beautiful natural landscapes and legends.


The huge rock in the entrance of Juwangsan mountain makes people admire with the beautiful natural landscapes.


The climbing path reaching from the peak with Sirubong Peak, Yeonhwabong Peak, Hyangnobong Peak and Ongnyeobong Peak to the valley with powerful waterfall is crowded all the year around. Every place of Juwangsan mountain draws the attention of many people, but the mineral water hot spring, which is rare in Korea, is extraordinary.






Dalki mineral water is alkalinity with magnesium and sodium. In the Joseon dynasty period, local people found the water gushing out from the crack of rock. They drank it, and their stomach became comfortable.


There are about 10 mineral springs like Hatang, Joongtang, Sangtang and Cheontang. Even though it is not raining, it does not run dry. The amount of water is consistent, and it is not frozen even in winter.


There is no color, no smell. It tastes like carbonated water. It is good for stomach disorder, neuralgia and anemia.


Dalki mineral water originally meant Sangtang. But the component of Sangtang became rare as time goes by, and people became to use Hatang more often after it was discovered. The name of mineral water is also interesting. Some people say it was originated from Dalki-dong, Bunaemyeon, Cheongsong-gun, the old name of administrative district of the region. Others say it means “the place where the moon rises”. There is other interpretation. It is “Dalki(of chicken)” because it sounds the cluck when the water comes rushing out from the hole of mineral water.


I recommend you eating Whole Chicken Soup in the restaurant after drinking Dalki mineral water while thinking about the interesting origin of the region.


Whole Chicken Soup is made of mineral water, chicken, ginseng, milk vetch root, jujube and mung beans. In particular, Sumac Chicken is good for stomach disorder.






After eating a lot in Dalki mineral spring, you can see 11 meters of Dalki waterfall in Wonoe-ri, Cheongsong-eup nearby.


Dalki waterfall is also called as Woelwoe waterfall. The dropping water is so powerful. While watching dropping water, you would down your sorrows.


While Yongchu falls in Juwang mountain(the first waterfall) is charming, Dalki waterfall is dynamic. While the water drops, the spray of water raises from the bottom.


Hasang where the water drops is egg-shaped valley with three ponds. The water is so blue and mysterious. As the old story, a bunch of silk would not reach the bottom. The color of the rock is so distinctive that you cannot find the place like this in Juwang mountain.


The sound of brook and birds is so peaceful. You would assimilate with the nature while climbing the beautiful path.


After watching clouds in the blue sky, I climb the mountain again.


You may realize the uncertainty of life. Moreover, you can think of the delight of life after hearing the sound of birds, water and wind.


While having fresh air of mountain, you can forget about complex ideas. You can seek refuge in the valley.


-The history tour with children-


Cheongsong, the region of honorable hermit


Bang ho-gong and the offspring of Cheongsong Sim retired to hermitage in the mountain, and devoted themselves to their studies regardless of authority and honor. Cheongsong is their living foundation.





Banghojeong Pavilion


Banghojeong pavilion, the famous vacation site in summer, is located in the entrance of Jinseong valley.


It looks like lofty classical scholar as it is located in the high rock floor in the entrance of valley.


Bangho Jo Joon-do built the pavilion in 1619 in order to devote himself to his study. It was selected as provincial folk material, and shows architecture style of the middle of the Joseon dynasty period.


Even though it has been faded due to the wind and rain for hundreds of years, it has sophisticated style. It is a one-story building with three rooms in the front and three rooms in the side. It consists of stone stylobate and circular columns. There is ondolbang(the room with the Korean floor heating system) in the center, and the sides are open. There is the tomb of the mother of Bangho Jo Joon-do nearby. He missed his mother when he retired to hermitage in the mountain. Huge zelkova hangs shadow under the pavilion.

House of Songso


The rich yangban of Cheongsong Sim lived in the house of Songso in the Joseon dynasty period. You would admire the size of the house. It was the largest house that yangban could live. You can assume the power of yangban in Songso house. The family of Cheongsong Sim had produced 13 ministers, three queens and four king's son-in-law for five hundreds in the Joseon dynasty period. The tall gate is old, but it is still lofty. The gate is made of hongsals, and large detached house has the gambrel roof, which is splendid and beautiful. There is a small detached house on the right side, and main building on the backside. Moreover, you can see Heotttam, storeroom, Doogi and separate buildings of the Joseon dynasty period. Joseon had strict law, so women could not pass by men in the detached house. So the wall was built to hide detached house, and it has been called Heotttam.







House of Songso was designated as No. 250 important folklore material in October, 2007. Hanok Experience Center is being operated, so you can learn the life and culture of ancestors. Folk games like Jianzi, slingshot, Tuho, tangram and hoop would make unforgettable memory for you.
