The photos of natural and cultural sights along the
Geumbuk-jeongmaek on this page were taken by
Roger
Shepherd on his epic trek up this Range in August 2010.
This range then ends at the Yellow Sea Coast, on that little peninsula of Taean County.

Note: much of this is the lower part of what the conventional Western-style geography
of Korea calls the Charyeong Range
