Information

It is located in Bongpyeong-myeon in PyeongChang-gun in Gangwon Province and one of mountaintops of Charyeong Mountain Range stretched out from Odaesan Mountain. It is connected to Boraebong Peak through a mountain ridge. It is an easy layered mountain compared to height as well as a remote mountain where gigantic trees have grown thick. Although it has distinct mountain paths, forests are very dense and people rarely come and go, so it is not easy to find a way. Since it shares a starting point for hiking with neighboring Boraebong Peak, and there are too many hiking courses, mountaineers can enjoy climbing the two mountains at the same time. Hoeryeongbong Peak is a natural forest where oak trees and maple trees are very dense, and various medicinal herbs, mushrooms and omija can be found. People say that it was name as Hoe-Ryeong(Spirit)-Bong because spirits of various mountains gathered together there or General Hoeryeong once lived there. Hiking course : Boraedong – Gongga – Boraeryeong – Boraebong – Gogae – Hoeryeongbong – 1309.4 peaks – 1200 peaks – Private Houses in Ibanggol – Sansindang – Deokgeo Elementary School Since it is a 3km distance from Deokgeo Elementary School to a starting point for mountain-climbing in Borae-dong, it is too far to walk, so visitors are recommended to use a taxi.
