The Yupyeong (Daewonsa Temple) Course is a hiking trail between Yupyeong-ri, Samjang-myeon, Sancheong and Cheonwangbong Peak on the eastern side of the mountain. Not many people take this trail because it’s not accessible by car, but its peaceful includes the great views of Daewonsa Valley and the Muchaejigi Falls. Ordinary hikers don’t usually come to the eastern side of Jirisan Mountain to take this trail, but those who fell in love with the mountain enjoy hiking on this trail.

The trail winds through Daewonsa Temple, which houses the "Multi-story Stone Pagoda of Daewonsa Temple" (Treasure No. 1112). It’s about an hour’s hike from Yupyeong Hiking Information Center to Bambatgol (Yupyeong Village) (3.5km), and it takes about 7 hour 30 minutes from Bambatgol to Cheonwangbong Peak, after passing through the Muchaejigi Falls to Chibanmok Shelter. So it takes a total of 8 hours and 30 minutes to hike all the way up to Cheonwangbong Peak if your take the Yupyeong Course. And it takes another 3 hours and 30 minutes to climb down the mountain by taking the Jungsalli (Kalbawi) Course. This makes it a round trip of about 12 hours. This means you need to spend the night in the mountain.

The only places to lodge are the Chibanmok Shelter and Rotary Shelter. The Chibanmok Shelter is on the way up, and it’s a private shelter owned and managed by a civilian named Min Byeong-tae. Up to 40 people can sleep in the building. The Rotary Shelter is in the Jungsalli (Kalbawi) Course on the way down, and it can sleep about 35 guests. This shelter is managed by the Jirisan National Park Office.
