Baengmudong is the main point of departure for those who want to climb the Cheonwangbong Peak in the northern part of Jirisan Mountain. The trail course that starts from Baengmudong and passes through Hadongbawi Rock and Jangteomok before reaching Cheonwangbong Peak is the shortest route to Cheonwangbong Peak in the northern part of Jirisan Mountain. The travel distance is 7.5km, and it takes about 5 hours 30 minutes to reach the top.

Walk for about 5 minutes from the Baengmudong Hiking Information Center, and you’ll come to a fork in the trail. The trail to the right will take you to Hansin Valley, and the one on the left will pass through Hadongbawi Rock and Chamsaem along the mountain ridge before reaching the Jangteomok Shelter. Go left from here, and about 2km later, you’ll see a giant rock called Hadongbawi Rock in front of steel bridge across the valley. Go past Hadongbawi Rock and climb for 30 minutes, and you’ll see a mountain spring called Chamsaem. This is where you fill up your water bottles, since there won’t be any potable water on the way to Jangteomok.

Also take a sip of the fountain water at Chamsaem, before climbing the steep stairway. It will take about 30 minutes to reach the mountain ridge. That’s where you want to catch a breath, since you still have to climb for about 2 more hours before reaching the Jangteomok Shelter.

From the Jangteomok Shelter, you’ll be passing through Jeseokbong Peak and Tongcheonmun Gate before reaching Cheonwangbong Peak. This section is 1.7km long, and it takes about 1 hour 30 minutes to reach the top. To descend from Cheonwangbong Peak, take the Baengmudong Course – the same trail you climbed. In other words, the descending trail from Cheonwangbong Peak will pass through Jangteomok Shelter, Chamsaem, Hadongbawi Rock before taking you back to Baengmudong. It takes about 4 hours to come down to the foot of the mountain.
