The Baekdudaegan is a mountain range and watershed-crest-line which runs through most of the length of the Korean Peninsula, from Baekdu Mountain in the north to Jirisan in the south. It is important in traditional Korean thought, a key aspect of Pungsujiri philosophy and practices. It is often referred to as the "spine" of the Korean Peninsula, and depicted in various historic artworks. It incorporates the Sobaek mountain range and most of the Taebaek mountain range.

Some people dream of walking along the entire trail along the crest of the range, which runs across the militarized border. The section in South Korea was designated as a national nature-preservation park in 2006 by the South Korean government.
