The mountain consisting of such beauty spots as Jeil Peak, Dongdae (Eastern Hill) and Hakbyoru (rocky peak) is very beautiful as it has mysterious peaks and rocks, thick forest and relics.

The word "Yaksan" means a mountain abundant in medical herbs and mineral waters and "dongdae" an observatory in the east.

In the area, there are many historical sites showing wisdom and talents of the Korean nation.

Yaksandongdae is now used as a cultural resort for the people.
