Opened in July 2009. An old building is hidden between the forest of apartments. It is none other than the historic site of General Soong-Gyeom Shin. This is where Taejo Wanggeon and Gyeonhweon of Later Baekje fought the 쁁attle of Gongsan in 927 A.D. It is worth looking around while listening to the story told by a cultural tour guide. The road to Hansilgol continues to the right of the historic site. The highlight of this road is 쁲owonmandi (the hill of wish, rest area). Strolling while looking at the scenery unfolded where the sky meets the earth, you will step onto its end, and you will be able to see the Birobong Peak (the peak of Mt. Palgongsan) and Gatbawi in the distance. Passing the narrow path, you will find yourself in Yongjin Village that reminds you of an affectionate rural village. The birthplace of former President Rae-Woo Noh is here. A cultural tour guide is available here. If you want to walk a little more, you may walk to Pahyesa Temple. The dense forest and pure valley combine to create enchanted scenery at Pahyesa Temple. It is known to be the royal Buddhist temple of King Yeongjo, the 21st King of Joseon. You can check the story behind it at the entrance to Pahyesa Temple. Course introduction
