Outline
Known as the last untouched region in Korea, Donggang River is the best rafting spot in Korea. Courses generally have steep cliffs on one side of the river and banks of pebbles or sand on the other. The most famous course is called ‘Eorayeon,’ a name which has the connotation of a pond with fish that come to the surface and make the river shine like silk. As Donggang’s representative course, the course is said to take rafters over the entirety of Donggang River. The course is so picturesque that many people forget to paddle and just float along and enjoy the scenery.

High1_ValleyStandard

Seonam village (선암마을) is a small town located on the banks of Seogang River in Ongjeong-ri, Seo-myeon, Yeongwol-gun, Gangwon-do province. The village is famous for its cliff that is shaped just like the Korean Peninsula. Visitors can catch a great view of the famous cliff from Oganjae lookout (located towards Namsanjae). Nearby points of interest include the historic sites of King Danjong (the 6th King of Joseon Dynasty) such as Jangneung Tomb and Cheongnyeongpo Cape. In the summer, many people come to enjoy rafting from the “East Coast” to the “West Coast” of the Peninsula-like cliff.
