    It is the birthplace of the Geumgang. Tteunbongsam is located in Subunri village in Jangsu-eup and it takes about 40 minutes from the center of the village. The stream started from Tteunbongsam travels down to meet the mountain streams from the North of Mt.Palgongsan at the post in Yongmeori Village. Putting Mt.Palgongsan in the middle, the left stream becomes the Seomjin River and the east becomes the Geumgang.
