  • Information
    Introduction
    Gugokpokpo 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 meter cascade. The falls are surrounded by interesting rock formations, one of which includes Haneulbyeokbawi Rock.

    Gugokpokpo Falls was designated as one of Chuncheon’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. Gugokpokpo Falls is frequented by many hikers even during winter as a popular ice climbing spot. The hiking trail on the right of the falls leads to a small community called Munbae Village, located over Kkalttakgogae Pass. Visitors can purchase local products such as sanchae (wild vegetable) bibimbap and traditional liquor at Munbae Village.
