  • Information
    The hot springs at Bugok have been called such because the land resembles the shape of a cauldron (the hanja characters of bu and gok refer to “cauldron” and “valley” respectively). When the spring was first discovered, people with skin ailments came in droves because of the water’s healing properties.

    Bugok Spring maintains the best water temperature, 78℃. In the Bugok Hot Spring Special Tourist Zone, varied resting facilities like hotels, condos, a golf course, hot spring fountain and other facilities based on hot springs are available. Nearby attractions include Hwawangsan Mountain, famous for azalea, and Changnyeong Upo Wetland, making this area perfect for various travel plans.
