NATIONAL NATURAL RECREATION FOREST

GANGWON-DO PROVINCE

Bokjusan Natural Recreation Forest

This forest sits in a quiet clean nature of Cheolwon valley across Gangwon-do and Gyeonggi-do and is conveniently situated within two-hour drive distance from the capital region. The name of the mountain “Bokju” comes from the legend that in old days when the god would judge the world by water, the mountain was flooded almost up to the peak but the very top of the peak (the size of Bokjukke, the lid of a rice bowl) was left unwet. This forest is guarded by surrounding mountains in Gangwon-do and is adorned with white birches like a fairy tale place. Streams here are so clean that Chinese minnow inhabits which is found only in the first grade water. It is home to a wide variety of wild flora and fauna.
