The scenery along the mountain in Naejangsan National Park is breathtaking. Whole mountain is surrounded by trees with colorful leaves from yellow, orange to red.

Local and foreign tourists can enjoy the scenery by hiking to the peak of the mountain, by taking cable car or walking leisurely while taking pictures of blazing autumn leaves

There is a beautiful river flowing along the way in the national park, making the beauty of the scenery perfect.

Outside the national park, there is a small village for tourists to enjoy. There are souvenirs shops, motels, restaurants, mini markets and a traditional market.
