The Kumgang Peak and Kumgang Cave are scenic spots in Mt. Chilbo, one of the six celebrated mountains of Korea.
They were known for the first time in the book “Sightseeing Tour of Mt. Chilbo” in 1860.
The igneous peak and rock cave form a mountain.
The mountain mainly consists of volcanic rock which was weathered into a queer peak and rocks.
The relative height of the Kumgang Peak is 35 metres.
The peak looks like a burning torch.
Pine and maple trees and honeysuckles grow between rocks halfway up the peak, decorating it beautifully in all seasons, but there are many places covered with rocks.
The weak part of the igneous rock about 100 metres down from the top of the Kumgang Peak was eroded into the Kumgang Cave.
The Kumgang Peak and Kumgang Cave are of significance in studying the formation of volcanic rock and weathering and add beauty to Mt. Chilbo.
