Also referred to as Seolsan and Seolbongsan, the mountain was named Seorak ("Seol" meaning "snow" and "Ak" meaning "big mountain") because the snow would not melt for a long time which kept the rocks in a permanent state of white. In November 1965, the Seoraksan Mountain district was designated a natural monument preservation area. Later, on December 1973, it was designated as a park preservation area, then in August 1982, as a Biosphere Preservation District by UNESCO.
Interesting facts about the Sheep Farm, it was established in 1988 and the Daegwallyeong Sheep Farm features more than 200 sheep. The first thing that comes into view as you approach the farm are the herds of white sheep roaming the green plains. Sheep grazing season varies depending on the weather but it usually begins in early May and lasts until the end of October. During this time the sheep are allowed to graze for 24 hours. In April, before grazing season begins, the sheep are first all shaved. However, it’s difficult to touch the sheep because they are instinctively afraid of people and avoid close contact.

Naksansa Temple is located 4 kilometers north of Naksan Beach. It boasts 1,300 years of history. The temple was built by Ui-Sang, the ambassador of the 30th King of the Silla Period (57 BC- 935 AD).
