Geumjeongsan(Mt.) is made up of grotesque rocks and cliffs on the hillside.Geumgang park, located in Geumeongsan(Mt.), is covered with the dense pine trees and well-equipped with a botanical garden, a zoo and various amusement facilities, so it is considered to be the largest family park along with nearby the spa for Busan citizens to enjoy throughout the year.
This place, holding such many cultural relics here as Mangmiru and Dokjindae gate, has a several hundred-year-old dense forest under the 1,300 meter-long cable car rising to the peak, which makes us feel cozy like a silk or fancy mattress.
It is also a tourist attraction for the visitors who reach the peak to be able to breathe the clean air, and to see the magnificent view of city. The Botanical Garden is located at the foot of the Geumjeong Mountain with an elevation of 801.5m. The mountain is located northwest of Dongnae Oncheonjang, replete with naturally grown trees, forming a forest on an area of 936,000 pyeong.
The rocky bluffs are creating a spectacle, streams flowing down the dale in the brooks will make you feel like you are out of this world and forget all the cares of daily living.
From spring to winter, there is not a day that goes by that men, women, the elderly and young come to the Park to enjoy rest and relaxation. Since it is located in the old Dongnae Dohobu, it has so many historic, cultural properties, the Botanical Park has become a living educational ground.
With so many cultural properties like Mangmiru and Dokjinadaemun, the Park also offers cable car service, the cable being some 1,300 meters long, to the summit, under which one receives a sensation of being surrounded by the hundreds old forest producing warmth like a silk ottoman.
