Gichan Land

Gichan Land
The chi ("natural life force") emitted from the 'elan' at the foot of Cheonghwang Peak of Mt. Wolchul is of extreme beauty, and the pure natural water running in the valley were used to created this new representative tourist attraction of Yeongam. Receiving the spirit of Mt. Wolchul, this area produced many distinguished people such as Kim Changjo, a celebrated musician who created immortal works of national music; Nangsan Kim Junyeon, a member of the Constitutional Assembly; Admiral Kang Gicheon, immortal commander of the Marine Corps; and Cho Hunhyeon, emperor of Baduk. Mt. Wolchul Gichan Land has the Gayageum theme park so you can experience national culture. It also features an aromatic forest bath, the well-being chi Road, natural pool, chi Health Center, pension, and sports facilities. Tourists seeking well-being as well as citizens of the county can use these facilities freely.

The Mt. Wolchul Well-being chi Road is built along Mt. Wolchul, boosted by the chi, force of the ground and seeming to soar up to the sky. It is a health road where you can refresh your mind and body while experiencing pure water, invigorating forests, stimulating rocks, and pleasant roads. The first phase of the Mt. Wolchul Well-being Gi Road is the 13km-long pedestrian-only heal road leading to the historic site of Dr. Wangin. A 40km-long chi Road from Haksan to Miam is planned for the 2nd phase. You can seek a healthy life by resting and exercising your body while feeling the spirit of Mt. Wolchul on the Mt. Wolchul chi Road.
