In South Kyongsang, the Chiri-san National Park actually spans three provinces (North Colla and South Cholla, in addition to South Kyongsang), although South Kyongsang has the largest portion, as well as the highest peak in the park. Cheonwhang-bong peak is the second highest peak in Korea and rises 1915 meters. Even those not making it to the top have a tough hiking climb, with over a dozen major peaks higher than 1,500 meters. The park contains an abundance of water, with many streams and rivers creating waterfalls on all sides of the park.
The park has two major trails: Cheonwhangbong and Youngshinbong.
Overall, Chiri National Park is the 5th most popular hiking trail of all 7 hikes in Korea.
