When you see the highest point in Damyang County, you'll understand immediately how it got its name -- the rock outline does indeed resemble a folding screen. Two lakes atop the mountain run down to provide water to the Yeongsan River. There is a nice hiking trail that goes through Mannamjae Pass, Mumyeongbong Peak, and Daebang Lake; it is about 9km (5 2/3 miles) long and takes about 4 hours to complete.
