  • In 2009, Sobaek-san Mountain Jarak-gil Trail was the first “culture eco exploration trail” selected by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. In 2011, it was selected as a “star in Korean tourism”. Sobaek-san Mountain is called the Jinsan (host mountain) of Yeongnam area and the 143km (about 360 li) Sobaek-san Mountain Jarak-gil Trail runs around the foot of Sobaek-san Mountain completing a full circle. Sobaek-san Mountain Jarak-gil Trail consists of 12 ‘jaraks’ and each ‘jarak’ with average distance of 12km (30 li) requires about 3 to 4 hours' walk. One can leisurely walk a jarak a day while appreciating the rhythm of the trail. Furthermore, since all the 12 jaraks have fine cultural boundaries from other, Sobaek-san Mountain Jarak-gil Trail can become an experience ground with novel feeling by finding the characteristic of each jarak while walking.

    The 1-2-3 jaraks were completed in 2009, 4-5-6-7 jaraks were completed in 2010 and 8-9-10-11-12 jaraks were completed in 2012. Nationwide trekkers are visiting the Sobaek-san Mountain Jarak-gil Trail. Already some jaraks are saturated with trekkers and the voice to control the trekkers by enforcing reservation system is getting bigger.

    Sobaek-san Mountain Jarak-gil Trail runs through 4 cities and counties in 3 provinces such as Yeongju-si City and Bonghwa-gun County of Gyeongsangbuk-do, Danyang-gun County of Chungcheongbuk-do and Yeongwol-gun County of Gangwon-do. The trail passes the fronts of small villages and leads the trekkers into a trail in an orchard with red fruits. It sometimes passes through a section of National Park. Since the constitution is so various, Sobaek-san Mountain Jarak-gil Trail is different from other trails, which most part of it is exposed to hot sunlight.

    Especially, there are many National Park sections, where the primitive state of forest is well conserved.
    The trekking along the Sobaek-san Mountain Jarak-gil Trail following the flowing brooks in most section heals the hunger in everyday living of trekker’s in the forest tunnel. As we can see in the names of peaks such as Gukmang-bong Peak, Biro-bong Peak, Yeonhwa-bong Peak or Dosol-bong Peak, the jarak (foot of a mountain) of Sobaek-san Mountain belongs to one of the Korea’s representative Buddhist-culture remains with big Buddhist temples, which fit with the fame of the mountain. Therefore, the trekkers can also explore the Buddhist temples such as Buseok-sa Temple, Seonghyeol-sa Temple, Choam-sa Temple, Biro-sa Temple, Heebang-sa Temple and Guin-sa Temple. Additional bonus is that it is possible to appreciate the different characteristics in the living cultures of 3 different administrative areas.
