Gyebangsan Mountain which is about 1,577 meters above the sea level constitutes a range of the Taebaek Mountains and towers high facing Odaesan Mountain in the east, and it ranks 5th in height following Halla, Jiri, Seorak and Deogyu. Unduryeong Ridge (1,089 meters above sea level) through which automobiles pass is located in the west of Gyebangsan Mountain, Eulsugol, a deep valley where an unknown number of black bears inhabit, is located in the north, and and mineral springs including the Bangadari Spring and the New Spring which are located in the south. Various medicinal herbs and wild flowers grow in Gyebangsan Mountain. In particular, it is famous for wild ginseng, there are a lot of Ginseng diggers who come and gather in this place. In addition, such rare trees as yew trees and royal azaleas grow in colonies in the mountain, and the physical aspects of the mountain are similar to those of Daecheongbong Peak of Seoraksan Mountain. The surrounding environment is so well-protected that it was designated as ecology protection area.
Gyebangsan Mountain is the Korea’s 5th largest mountain where one can take a glance at Seoraksan Mountain, Odaesan Mountain, Gariwangsan Mountain, Geumdangsan Mountain, Dutasan Mountain and Taegisan Mountain. In addition, an impressive view of the mountain covered with snow that can be enjoyed only in the winter continues until early March, it gains popularity among mountaineers. Since the difference in altitude between Unduryeong (1,089m/the average height of mountains) and the summit is only 488m, Mountaineers can easily balance themselves and have the advantage of being able to climb without difficulties. Reaching up the summit of this mountain you can see the Baedudaegan ridge at a glance. It is considered one of the best observatories nearby. Seoraksan Mountain and Jeombongsan Mountain in the north, Noinbong Peak in Odaesan Mountain and and Daegwallryeong in the east and Hoegisan Mountain and Taegisan Mountain in the west create panoramic views.
