Introducing Gyeryongsan National Park

This park is one of the smallest parks in South Korea and it’s possible to hike from one end to the other in less than a day. The name is just as unassuming – Gyeryongsan means ‘Rooster Dragon Mountain’, because locals thought the mountain resembled a dragon with a rooster’s head. There are two park entrances: the eastern one closer to Daejeon, and the western one closer to Gongju.
