The Donggang River originates from Odesan Mountain and flows continuously forming currents as it meanders along. Steep cliffs rise where the river makes a turn, offering some of the most beautiful scenic views in Korea. Caves are nestled in between cliffs. The river is preserved in such a primitive state that it was designated as an ecosystem reserve. The area is a habitat for endangered animal species like merganser and otter. Go on a rafting trip through this blessed nature and you are sure to go home with some great memories of Pyeongchang in the summer.
