Gangwon-do

Trip Planner Asia  /  South Korea  /  Gangwon-do
(4/5 based on 3,400+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, historic sites
Predominantly mountainous, the northernmost province of Gangwon-do offers a wide range of outdoor activities in natural scenery. A typical Gangwon-do itinerary includes scenic hikes through national parks dotted by Buddha statues and tall pagodas, plus relaxation on clean beaches in summer or excellent skiing in winter. Take a cable car to enjoy a view of the World Heritage-listed mountain biosphere, and tour the Demilitarized Zone to understand the magnitude of foreign-imposed division. Forests with edible alpine plants and mushrooms add unique flavors to Gangwon-do's cuisine, which also uses cuttlefish and pollock harvested from the long, steep coast. Make the most of your holiday in Gangwon-do by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our South Korea vacation builder.
