  • Information
    Introduction
    Baekdam Valley is the representative valley of the Naeseorak area, and the river is a typical S-shaped stream formed by the winding geography from the Naegapyeong Village to the front of Baekdam Villa. The valley is named Baekdam after the claim that there are 100 naturally formed puddles in the valley. The stream that runs into Baekdam Valley comes from Suryeomdong Valley, which in turn starts from the joining of Gayadong Valley and the Baewundong Valley.
    Baekdam Valley is surrounded by many clean valleys, where natural monuments such as Manchurian Trout and Korean Salmon live, and also by various Buddhist temples such as Yeongsiamsa, Oseamsa, and Bongjeongamsa. It is a 2 hour walk (8 km) from the ticket booth to Baekdamsa Temple on the valley path. You can also take a shuttle bus to the upper course of the valley. After getting off the bus, walk 3 km to Baekdamsa Temple and another 300m more will lead you to Baekdam Mountain Villa. Walking up to the right side of Geumgyo, which is the first bridge on the path, you will see Dutaeso on the left side below. Then after crossing the third bridge, Gang-gyo, you will see Eunseondo, where swirling water streams of mountain ranges create an image of an island. From the forth road called Won-gyo, all the paths are sand paths. Cheongryongdam is located 300 m from Won-gyo, and Sushim-gyo leads to Baekdamsa Temple. Baedamsa Temple, located at the center of Baekdam Valley, is known as a temple where Han Yong-Un (1879-1944), a famous monk and a poet, stayed during his lifetime.
