One of the most well known sites to rafting maniacs is the Geumdang Valley of Pyeongchanggang River. It is a 5km course along Mt. Geumdangsan and Mt. Geomunsan from the Deungmaeji Village, which is at the upper stream, to Baegam-dong.
The current of water is strong enough from the beginning that one does not necessarily have to row, and the water volume is high. The launching point of a proper Geumdang rafting course is from where you can see Mt. Geumdangsan rising behind the riverside, and finish at Baegam-dong. The water is clean and there are sandbanks sporadically, which are adequate for taking breaks. The water stream of Geumdang Valley joins with that of Pyeongchanggang River past Gaesuri. Pyeongchanggang River is a perfect fishing site for Mandarin fish, Korean piscivorous chubs, and Daces.
