Daesong-ri, Seosaeng-myeon, Ulju, Ulsan
742m-high Daeunsan covering from Unhwa-ri of Onyang-eup, Ulju to Myeonggok-ri and Samho-ri of Ungsang-eup, Yangsan is well-known for pure and abundant waters.
It is referred to as Bulgwang Mountains in Korea’s Atlas, but was renamed Daeunsan along the way.
There are different interpretations about this: some
say it refers to “the glory of Buddha” as it was the last place where Great Priest Wonhyo stayed, while others say that “Bul” of Bulgwang Mountains was interpreted
as castle or city to call the mountain “Bright Castle’s Mountains.'
Daeunsan is an ordinary mountain with no outstanding landscapes or sceneries, but the interesting uphills and downhills along the ridgelines make it very exciting
when hiking. Moreover, azaleas and reed fields spread along the ridgelines, so you can experience charming hiking in their peak seasons.
From the peak, you can look down to downtown Ulsak and East Sea and even to Daema Island far away in a clear day. However, the mountain is mostly covered with clouds
throughout the year except for a few days. Some evey say that it was named Daeunsan after the clouds.
