2014 is designated by the Korean government as the Visit Jirisan Area Year.
With the city of Seoul alone boasting 37 mountains, you can easily imagine what Korea's terrain is like. There are more than 800 mountains in Korea, with each one of them offering their own special highlights. One of the local favorites is the impressive Seoraksan Mountain during Autumn. Countless numbers of people venture out to view the autumn foliage. If you aren't up for hiking, there is a cable car that will lift you up 670
As the tallest and largest mountain in the southern part of the Korean Peninsula, Jirisan spans over seven cities and counties. Under the scheme the municipal authorities of these cities and counties are encouraged to form an effective tourism network that provides well-coordinated services for the tourists visiting the area. The local administrations have already reached an agreement to use a slogan, "The Proposal of the Millennium: Commune with Nature!", to attract tourists from across the country. They highlight that Jirisan has been one of the Korea's most bountiful natural healing zones dotted with attractions that boost vitality, good luck and love among visitors.
