Tangeumdae is a hill called Daemunsan Mountain in Chungju.
It is one of the attractions with a long history.
The Tangeummdae Height in Chungju earned its name from the fact that the Ureuk(Musicians of Gaya), considered one of the three greatest musicians in Korean history, played the gayageum (twelve-stringed Korean zither) at this place. Tangeumdae is also famously remembered as the height from which General Sillip, after his defeat in a battle against the Japanese led by Soseo-haengjang, jumped to his death, during Imjin waeran (Japanese Invasion of Korea of 1592). The soaring cliff, hugged by the Namhangang River, has a lush pinewood at the top. From there, one can gain a sweeping view over its scenic surroundings. Mt. Gyemyeongsan and Mt. Namsan stand tall, in picturesque beauty, amidst the vast plain around them with the downtown section of Chungju visible from afar.from Cultural Heritage Administration
