baekdu-daegan.com:The “Baek-du-dae-gan” [white-head great-ridge] is the continuous mountain-range ridge-line that runs from Janggun Peak of Mt. Baekdu-san on the northern border of the Korean Peninsula down to Jiri-san near its southern end, and the geomantic earth-energy main-stream that (in theory) runs along it.
It is around 1400-1500 km long, depending on how closely you count the twists and turns along its crest. About 735 km of crest-trail is within what is now South Korea, and most ofthat is accessible for hiking (with alternate routes for what is not).
It follows the Taebaek [Grand White] Mountain Range along the east coast thru Geumgang-san, Seorak-san and Odae-san down to Taebaek-san, and then it follows the Sobaek [Smaller White] Mountain Range across Sobaek-san (passing below Worak-san) to Sogni-san, and then down through the center of the peninsula’s southern quarter, passing through Hwangak-san and the southeast corner of Deogyu-san,
ending at Jiri-san. It branches off into over a dozen major earth-energy-lines that follow the lesser ranges and channel all Korea’s rivers (thirteen major Branches, hundreds of lesser ones). Complete reading…

This mountain boasts nearly 40 valleys winding down from Geumobong Peak (468m in elevation), Gowibong Peak (494m in elevation), and other peaks. This 4km-wide (east-west) and 8km-long (south-north) oval mountain is aligned to the south.
Mt. Namsan is a veritable open-air museum with 100 temples, 80 stone Buddha statues, and 60 stone pagodas scattered across the mountain. This mountain features nearly 40 valleys and is divided into the Southwest Mountain, a sacred place during the Silla period, and the Southeast Mountain in which many Buddhas can be found around the valleys.
Najeong Well at the western foot of Mt. Namsan is the mythic birthplace of King Park Hyeokgeose, founder of the Silla Dynasty. The local Yangsanjae Shrine was built in honor of a founder who lived in Seorabeol before the Silla Kingdom was established. Poseokjeong Pavilion is the place where the glorious era of the Silla Dynasty came to an end. In the Southeast Mountain region are found the Seated Buddha of Borisa Temple, a 9m-tall Bulmusa Stone Buddha Statue and a Seated Stone Buddha at Gamsil Shrine. Mt.
