NATIONAL NATURAL RECREATION FOREST

GANGWON-DO PROVINCE

Yonghwasan Natural Recreation Forest

Yonghwasan (Mountain) National Recreational Forest is located in one hour and half drive distance from the capital region. It is only 30 minute drive away from Chuncheon and Hwacheon so visitors can admire famous scenic views of Chuncheon and Hwacheon and also enjoy local festivals and local food such as Dakgalbi, stir-fried chicken and Makguksu, cold buckwheat noodles. Yonghawsan (Mountain) is one of the top 100 mountains in Korea designated by the Korea Forest Service and its natural broadleaf forest and planted coniferous forest are growing well in harmony. So it is the best place for forest bathing. Abundant waters flow along bedrocks in the valley, so getting into the mountain can be one of the best get-away from hot summer. Moreover, diverse fauna and flora inhabit here so it can be good for natural experience activities. Hiking and rock-climbing can be also enjoyed in the mountain. Visitors can admire fantastic views of the surrounding lake and mountain while hiking.
