Once you reach Jungtae Village, you’ll see the ‘Jirisan Dulle-gil Jungtae Information Center’. Every traveler must stop by at the center. The place is dedicated to minimizing damage to the farms, and local villagers who agreed to help visitors find their way around their villages. As for visitors, the purpose of this place is to remind them the importance of responsibility and fair travel. True mountaineers would agree that we don’t climb the mountain just because it’s there, but also because there are people living in it. To get along with each others, you must be one with the others. And becoming one with other people starts from responsibility and fair travel.
The Deoksan-Witae Section is composed of a mountain path and an old road on which you can take a look around the historical site of Jo Sik (pen-name: Nammyeong), and feel the energy of Cheonwangbong Peak in Jirisan Mountain. And With the road running along Jungtaejae and Deokcheongang River, you'll feel like you’re walking in a forest at one moment and along a river at another.
