Jecheon, Danyang offer clean air, comfort to the soul
Dishes made with fresh vegetable from the clean environment, crystal-clear waters and a breath of fresh air.
These are some of the most important elements for all living creatures on Earth, of course, for us.
There are only two areas in Korea that don't lack any of these elements: Jecheon-si and Danyang-gun County, both in Chungcheongbuk-do Province. Their clean waters reflect the nearby mountainscape and the skies above. A breeze of refreshing air blows from the mountains and the lake gives our souls relief from the hustle and bustle of the big city. They offer a short getaway for comfort and peace.
Selected by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism as one of the top 10 tourist destinations for people looking for peace of mind, the two locations are just a two-hour ride from Seoul.
Vacationers flock to Chungpungho Lake, an artificial lake in Jecheon, to enjoy a variety of water sports, as well as to explore ancient myths and the history hidden in each and every natural treasure here.
