Outer Kumgangsan


Outer Kumgangsan

  • Kuryong Falls. 4 meters wide and with a drop of 74 meters, the falls are an impressive experience. There is a platform, the Kuryong Pavilion, offering a good view. The pond below is called Kuryong Lake. According to the myth, once upon a time nine dragons were there to defend the Kumgang Mountain. From the lake you can walk down a bit, cross Ryondam Bridge and then climb for 700 meters to Kuryong Rock. Here you will have a spectacular view of a deep valley and several lakes.
  • Manmulsang Area. Fantastically shaped cliffs and rocks, about a 10-kilometer drive from the Kumgangsan Hotel. Among the peculiarly shaped rocks are Samson (three-fairy) rock, consisting of three rocks standing side by side behind Mansang pavilion at the entrance to Manmulsang. There's also the Kwimyon (demonfaced) rock, made up by a small rock standing on a bigger one, and the Chonson (fairies-from-heaven) rock which serves as an observatory. Ten people can stand here and look out at the peaks. According to the myth fairies came here to play. Northwest of the rock, is the Fairies Lake, where the fairies washed themselves before returning to heaven.
