    Introduction
    Sogeumgang River is one of Hwaam's Eight Scenic Attractions, and refers to a 4km stretch of river flowing from Hwaam 1-ri to Morun 1-ri. The river is lined with 100~150m high rock cliffs topped with lush forests. This section of river is so beautiful, it is called "Little Geumgangsan River," with Geumgangsan Mountain being known as the most breathtaking location in all of Korea. There are a number of famous rocks here, such as the Peace Rock, which is home to an eagle's nest, and the Three Brothers Rock where three mountain spirits were said to have played. There are also some small caves that tourists enjoy visiting.
