The 33 scenic points of Gucheondonggyegok Valley are what make it so famous. Of the 33, the most famous are Najetongmun and Sushimdae. Najetongmun, the first scenic point is a huge boulder with a hole through it like a tunnel. During the Samguk era, this spot once served as the border between the Silla and Baekje nations. Because it was the dividing line between the two nations, even to this day, the east and west side's speech and customs are different. No one knows how the hole got there, but the experience of walking through it is quite interesting. Sushimdae, the 12th scenic point, is a valley approximately 400 m in length. It is surrounded by mountain cliffs, which makes the area resemble Geumgangsan Mountain, therefore it is often referred to as Sogeumgangsan Mountain, or little Geumgangsan Mountain. The clear water and beautiful scenery makes this spot a must-see.
