Sambangsan Mountain surrounds PyeongChang-eup taking the shape of a mother embracing a baby , a reminiscent of a natural fortress. It is full of the green deep woods and various wild herbs and vegetables including wild asters and mountain herbs, and rock roads, fields of reeds, steep hills and Surigul are evenly distributed. In the past, there was an office (Gwan-bang) in charge of inspecting passersby in a major transportation point, and there were three offices in three areas (Eumjimal, Yangjimal and Sokgae) under the mountain, so it was called Sambangsan Mountain. People called it 'Sambangsan', Sam-(means three)- bang (means office)- san(means mountain), because it covers PyeongChang-eup in PyeongChang-gun, Mitan-myeon and Buk-myeon in Yeongwol-gun. Course (7.2km, about 6 hours) : Hygienic Environment Office – Metdunjae Hill – Sambangsan Mountain Summit – Heliport – Jongbu 3-ri (Eumjimal)
