  • Information
    Gugok Falls is located near Bonghwasan Mountain in Chuncheon-si, Gangwon-do. The falls twist and turn nine different times before dropping down from a huge stone wall, ending in a magnificent 50 m cascade. The falls are surrounded by interesting rock formations, one of which includes the Haneulbyeokbawi Rock.

    Gugok Falls was designated as one of Chuncheon city’s official tourist attractions on February 13, 1981. It takes about 20 minutes on foot to get to the falls from the ticket booth located at the entrance. Gugok Falls is frequented by many hikers even during winter as a popular ice climbing spot. Follow the hiking trail on the right of the falls and it will take you to a small community village called Munbae Village, located over hill called Kkalttakgogae. Visitors will be able to get hands on local products such as sanchae (wild vegetable) bibimbap and traditional liquor at Munbae Village.
