4. Mt. Myohyangsan
Mt. Myohyangsan is the home of the Buddhist religion.  The strong Buddhist influence is best manifested in Bohyunsa temple, which holds many other historical remains from the Koyro dynasty. Myohyangsan means unique fragrance because of the many fragrant trees found in the forest surrounding the mountain.  The magnificence of the peaks makes Mt. Myohyangsan one of the most famous attractions in Korea.
