Daeunsan i.e. Mt.Daeun

from Wikivoyage by 리듬 by-sa/3.0

Ulsan has designated Twelve Scenic Areas of interest to tourists visiting the city.

  • Four Seasons of Mt Gaji. Selected as one of the 100 Most Beautiful Mountains in Korea, Mt Gaji is the tallest mountain in Ulsan. There are well marked hiking trails up the mountain and are accessible from Seongnamsa Temple.

  • Sunrise at Ganjeolgot. The first sunrise in Northeast Asia can be seen from Ganjeolgot. It is a popular destination for New Year celebrations.

  • Black Pebble Beach at Gangdong and Jujeon Seashore. The beach is filled with, well, black pebbles.

  • Daewangam Songnim. This coastal area is filled with rock formations, 15000 pine trees and views of the East Sea.

  • Naewonam Valley of Mt Daeun. The tranquil valley is filled with pools of water and waterfalls next to large stones. The Naewonam Temple is also located in the valley amidst the mountain scenery.

  • The Night View of the Ulsan Industrial Complex from Mt Muryong. While looking over an industrial complex might not seem like a tourist attraction, the view is something out of Blade Runner or Koyaanisqatsi. Take your tripod to get the best night photos.

  • Bangudae. Bangudae refers to the turtle shape of the mountain. This natural area is filled with mountains, valleys and rock formations. It also houses the Bangudae Boulder Petroglyphs from the stone age, a designated national treasure.

  • Eoksae Plain of Mt Sinbul. Mt Sinbul is the second tallest mountain in Ulsan, with a vast plain covered in reeds. Like Mt Gaji, it is considered to be one of the 100 most beautiful mountains in Korea.

  • Ulsan Sports Complex. If you enjoy visiting random stadiums, then by all means, go to the Ulsan Sports Complex, although it seems like it only made the list because Koreans love soccer. Home to one of South Korea's many soccer teams.

  • Jakgwaecheon. Formed by many years of water erosion, the river runs straight past a temple. The rocks are engraved with Korean characters and is an excellent place for photography.

  • Seonbawi (Standing Rock) and Simnidaebat (Bamboo Grove) of Taehwa River. The combination of rocks, river and the bamboo forest create a breathing space in a highly industrial city. It is linked to the Taehwagang River Grand-Park.

  • Paraeso waterfall. A 15 meter waterfall with the reflection of the mountain in the pool below.
  • Museums

  • Ulsan Petroglyph Museum, 333-1, Cheonjeon-ri, Dudong-myeon, Ulju-gun.

  • Jangsaengpo Whale Museum and Whale Experience Hall, 39-29 Maeam-dong, Nam-gu, Ulsan.

  • Oegosan Pottery Village.
