|The Gangchon Resort (강촌유원지) is a small village nestled along the Bukan River in Chuncheon, Gangwon-do Province. The river is on one side of the village, while Bongwhasan Mountain and Samaksan Mountain are on the opposite side making for beautiful scenery anywhere you look.
Gangchon Train Station is conveniently located near the entrance to the recreational area. Many young Koreans enjoy taking the romantic train ride to this cozy little village and for the past ten years this spot has also become a popular place for college students to go to on weekend trips. The village area has campgrounds, a youth hostel and other lodging facilities, bicycle paths, bungee jump facilities and many other recreational areas.
This area is especially famous for mountain biking. There are many places to rent bicycles; for those are not accustomed to mountain biking, motorized bicycles are available. The most popular bicycle course is the well-made route to Gugok Waterfall. Bicycles can be left in the parking lot of the entrance to the waterfalls. After purchasing tickets, it is just a short hike up to the waterfall. No need to worry about getting lost on the bike route, just follow the crowds as many people make use of this popular route. The 67 meter high waterfall is a natural wonder. People flock to this spot in the summer to escape the heat and in the winter to see the ice sheets gracefully frozen in time.
