Information on the Festival
At the summit of Mt. Taebaek, 1,567 meters above sea level, royal azaleas and yew trees create a grandiose sight in spring. This blossoming, starting from Mt. Jiri, reaches its peak here on Mt. Taebaeksanin June, coloring Cheonjedan (the summit), Janggunbong (peak) and Musobong (peak) in glorious shades of pink. The Azalea Festival is held at this beautiful time of year, together with the Fossil Festival, which features Gumunso (Natural Monument ≫417) preserving the secret of the birth of the Korean peninsula. As a result, tourists throughout Korea flock to this area.
