Inner Chilbo & Sungson Pavilion
This area stretches to the inland region of the Mt.Chilbo. The towering peaks are covered with pine trees viewed like green carpets and multi-farious rocks. Inner Chilbo is subdivided in districts of Kaesim Temple, Sangmae Peak, Naewon and Isonam.
Meanwhile, 430m southeast of Kaesim Temple is a pergola named Sungson Pavilion commanding a fine view. Literally known as "ascending to heaven", the pavilion is referred to a legend that fairies who visited the Mt.Chilbo and bathed in the Kuryong Pool, danced and ascended to heaven. All interesting sights of Inner Chilbo can be viewed from this pavilion either directly or via available free telescope.
The Kaesim Temple is situated in the Mt.Pothak, central part of Inner Chilbo. First built in 826 in Palhae dynasty, it was rebuilt in 1377 in Koryo dynasty and repaired several times in Li dynasty. It consists of Taeung Hall, Manse Pavilion, Simgom Hall, Unghyang Pavilion, Kwanum Hall and Sansin Pavilion. Even though the DPR Korea is an atheist country all ancient buddhist temples are preserved and kept for future generations.
Taeung Hall has five Buddhist images, seven pictures of Arahata, wooden bells with clappers. The lion-shaped wooden motar attracts the viewers. In Manse Pavilion there is a bronze bell which was built in 1764. Beside the temple there is a 600-year old tasty chestnut tree.

Sea Chilbo is a continuation of sheer cliffs, queer-shaped rocks washed and worn by the sea and sand beaches. It offers mysterious islets and rocks on the sea, green pine trees emitting the smell of resin and white-crested waves. One of the best views of the Mt. Chilbo can be enjoyed from a boat.
