Aegi Peak

Place of sorrow of Aegi and division of people

The name stems from a gisaeng, Aegi, who died on its peak pining for a Pyeongyang governor kidnapped during the Manchu Invasions of 1636. In 1968, the late President Park Chung-hee visited Aegibong Peak and inscribed the name by hand, declaring that the regret of Aegi equaled that of Koreans who lost their home.During every Chuseok at Mangbaedan, people who have left their families and hometown come to hold a ritual for their ancestors and wish for the reunification of Korea.
