Hoedong-ri Village in Jeongseon
This is a basin village formed around Gariwangsan (Mt.). It is a typical mountain village with Hoedong valley stream flowing across the center. As a noted mountain decorated with cherry blossoms, apricot blossoms, azaleas in the spring, it warmly welcomes visitors who admire spring views.
Hoedong valley is the fountainhead of Yongtancheon (upper stream of Donggang (River)) where lenoks, the natural monument, inhabit in the clear water. It creates spectacles all year round with royal azaleas in spring, maples in fall and silver world of snowscape in winter.
