Intro :
The mountain between Gyeongsangbuk-do and Daegu stands 1,193 meters high. It is a famous mountain in Daegu and sits about 20 kilometers north of the center of the city. During the Silla Dynasty, it was called 'Buak', 'Jungak' and 'Gongsan', but in the Joseon Dynasty, the mountain came to be called by its current name 'Palgongsan'. The area is the center of Buddhist culture in Korea and harbors many temples surrounded by its scenic rocks and streams. Azaleas bloom in the spring, while the luxuriant forests and clear fresh streams bring delight in the summer. Majestic golden-toned leaves dot the landscape and decorate the 16.3-kilometer roadway during the fall. In the winter, the snowy landscape is a must-see. A veritable centerpiece for each season, Palgongsan Mountain is never without visitors.
