Long called the Mt.Geumgangsan of Gyeonggi, Mt Yongmunsan (1,157m) became a tourist site in 1982. The valleys that run through the innumerable rock surfaces mesmerize the mountain's visitors all throughout the year. The hike up this mountain usually begins at the entrance of Yongmunsa Temple. Follow the trail lined with thick trees on both sides and you come across a huge gingko tress in front of the Yongmunsa Temple. From here, take the trail heading to the left to reach Sangwonam Rock. Then cross the valley and go approximately 100m up. There's a ridgeline and a seemingly endless line of bedrocks. Mt. Yongmunsan has so many bedrocks that it appears as though it were virtually covered with rocks. Plus, there are plenty of water springs, including the Janggun, where hikers can stop to quench their thirst.
