Sanbangsan Mountain is the result of violent volcanic activity some 700,000 to 800,000 years ago and is in fact a huge body of lava. The cliffs on the southern side of the lava dome are marked with a rich variety of curious formations such as weathering pits and talus scree slopes, some of which are as high as 200m. As its name 'sanbang' – literally meaning 'a cave inside a mountain' – suggests, this mountain contains a cave, which is located about 150m above sea level and has a spectacular view out over the ocean. Due to its close location to the sea and its high elevation, the peak is often ringed with clouds. The upper slopes of the mountain have their own distinct climatic conditions and are protected for their value for botanical research.

- Cheonjeyeon Waterfall
According to a legend, Cheonjeyon Falls means “the pond of God” where nymphs descend to take a bath. The first cascade of Cheonjeyon Waterfall is 22 m high and the water forms a pond 21 m in depth. The water flows farther along to form the second cascade of 30 m high. Up from Cheonjeyon Falls is the stunning arch bridge Seonimkyo, which is also called Seven Nymphs Bridge. Water springs from a spot between the precipice of the waterfall and the lower clay layer. From the ceiling of a cave located east of the first waterfall, the water drops and grows into several streams of water. Since it is gushing out of stony ground, the water has been used for curing diseases as well as for drinking. From ancient times, people have believed that they can recover from any disease if they stand under a waterfall on either the Buddhist All Souls Day or Cheoseo Day (at the end of August). Right next to the falls is Yeomiji Botanical Gardens and many other tourist attractions.
