NATIONAL NATURAL RECREATION FOREST

GANGWON-DO PROVINCE

Yongdae Natural Recreation Forest

This forest is located near the top of Jinburyeong north of Taebaek Mountains which lies across the waist of the Korean peninsula, and also adjacent to National Road No.46 which leads to Seoraksan National Park and Donghae beach. It features crystal-clean waters of long and small streams that flow from Maebongsan Mountain (1,271m above the sea level). A deciduous forest here consists of oak, linden, birch, and pine trees. The landscape is beautiful all-year-round, and also there are various wild animals like pheasant, rod dear, squirrels and racoons. Yeonhwadong (village) in which the forest sits is shaped like a lotus floating on the fountain.
