※ Ulsanbawi Rock
The most impressive rock formation in Korea.
The trail leading up to Ulsanbawi Rock is located next to Sinheungsa Temple in Seorakdong Mini Parkk. In the middle of the trail is Heundeulbawi, a balanced rock. It takes around 3~4 hours to reach the top of Usanbawi and come back down. Ulsanbawi is located 873m above sea level. It is surrounded by cliffs, has a circumference of 4km, consists of 6peaks, and boasts spectacular views. There are 3 different origin stories for the name "Ulsanbawi". The first claims that because the rock is shaped like a fence, it was named after the Korean word for fence "ultari". The second is that it was named after the Ulsan area, and the third suggests that the name means "crying mountain". When clods surround Ulsanbawi, it appears as if it is covered in cloud-shaped flowers.
