It was established in the year 1966 and covers about 80000 square kilometres. There are plenty of places in South Korea that are untouched by even the Korean inhabitants and still remain one of the tourist spots. Jirisan National Park is one of a kind. The South Korean Tourism Adventure, Tracking, Hacking and Climbing has taken urgent steps to promote these national parks.

Though Chilbulbong is slightly higher (by 3 meters), Sangwangbong is more well-known and usually listed as the primary peak. For all purposes, they can be considered a single peak. The lower part of the park is dominated by pines, especially around Haeinsa and on the road leading up to the temple. Deciduous trees are also common. In Autumn, the bright crimson of the maples and the yellow of the gingko trees sets the mountain ablaze, making Gayasan one of the top parks for visits during the fall season. The park also contains the beautiful Hongnyudong Valley, Yongmun Falls, and two impressive standing images of the Buddha on the mountain.
