About the Daeunsan Naewonam Valley

Rising 742 meters above the sea level and running from Unhwa-ri, Onyang-eup, Ulju-gun to Myeonggok-ri, Samho-ri, Ungsang-eup, and Yangsan-si, Daeunsan is a valley full of clear clean water and famous for the fact that Great Master Wonhyo cultivated his mind here.
According to Dongguk Yeoji Seungram, it was named Bulgwangsan(佛光山), but at some point, began to be called Daeunsan.

Because this mountain has proper degrees of ascent and descent with its undulating ridges, you can enjoy climbing the mountain to the peak at an altitude around 700m relatively better than other mountains with the same altitude. Moreover, the trails are lined with azaleas and silver grass habitats from its ridges to its peak, so you can enjoy more picturesque hiking. You can view all of Ulsan and the East Sea from the top-even Daemado in the distance when the sky is clear enough.

Daeunsan Naewonam Valley

This valley is known as the ideal spot in Yeongnam, the unexplored region comprised of deep and clear beautiful ponds and falls, and inviting rocks. In spring, royal azaleas bloom. Clean water flowing from Daeunsan, Dotongsan, and Bakchigol has never dried up or dwindled even in dry summers. Moreover, the water is as clear as crystal so that fish playing in water over 3 meters in depth can been clearly seen.

In fall, red and blue colored leaves in Daeunsan make up a magnificent view in harmony with red–colored scrub, attracting many tourists and hikers from Busan and Ulsan. Cliffs towering near the valley are steep but gorgeous, so are called Sogeumgang. In addition, there is a marsh called ‘Aegiso’ near which thatched cottage-sized rocks. This marsh is beautiful enough to be written up in the “Ulsan Eupji (the history of a town)”.

Particularly, the magic lily community can be found, where rare and precious plants grow, drawing attention from academic circles. Centered on Daeunsan, these picturesque valleys are met at the entrance of Sangri village, now becoming a naturally formed recreational park.
