PYEONGCHANG, GANGWON PROVINCE

Gangwon Province is located in the central eastern region of the Korean Peninsula.

Most of the land is covered with thick forests, providing an abundance of scenic vistas with fewer residential areas than in other provinces. Its remote wooded mountains and ravines as well as small coastal towns are rich in scenic splendor.

The eastern coastline, stretching 390 kilometers (234 miles) is rugged and mountainous with some of the most breathtaking scenery in Korea.

Skiing and other winter sports help make the area a year-round resort destination.

To meet the needs of the more than one million skiers per year, several resorts are now equipped with snow-making machines, which have extended the season from December to March. Other popular recreational activities in the region include swimming in summer and mountain climbing in autumn. The beaches here are perhaps the finest in Korea, gently sloping into shallow water and mild currents.
