As a region that is part of Gyeryongsan National Park, it takes pride in its beautiful look. The pine tree forest at the beginning of the section from Sapjae Pass to Dodeokbong Peak is friendly and a little tiring, but it’s not so tough. The mountain is high and the valley is deep which forms a natural heritage that is home to various wild animals, so it must be preserved.
The view from the summit of Dodeokbong Peak is not so magnificent, but as you move towards Jatigogae Pass, you can enjoy little joys such as Sutonggol Valley and surroundings which are only known to those who have hiked on this section.
Geumsubong Peak was given its name because of its beauty, resembling embroidering on silk. As you stand on Geumsubong Peak, Seongbuk-dong can be seen at a glance towards the south. Ssaetteum Village residents in Seongbuk-dong still hold ceremonies at the foot of Geumsubong Peak, praying for peace and harmony in the village.
Around Section 9, Yuseong Youth Hostel, Bokyong Equestrian Center and famous restaurants around the entrance of Sutonggol can be found.
