Explanation

The water of Cheonjiyeonpokpo Falls, meaning "sky connected with land," appears to fall from the heavens, giving the falls its name. Apart from the wild dampalsu trees, designated as Natural Monument No. 163, the wooded area also contains a great variety of rare plants such as brambles, songyeopnan as well as gusiljappam trees, sanyuja trees (Chinese lemon trees), and camellias which all make up a forest specified as Natural Monument No. 379. Take a walk along the subtropical path towards the Cheonjiyeonpokpo Falls for a kilometer and you will be able to hear the magnificent sound of the water falling. The waterfall is 22 meters high, 12 meters wide and 20 meters in depth. The clear and deep water of Cheonjiyeonpokpo Falls is designated as Natural Monument No. 27 and is renowned as a habitat for Mutae eels (Natural Monument No. 258).
