Best places in Korea for rafting

Rafting is probably the most exciting of summer leisure sports. Rushing down river valleys in rubber boats gives the feeling of eternal freedom – and plenty of excitement. Many thrill seekers enjoy whitewater rafting for its adventure, but there is also quiet rafting and gentle river rides to be enjoyed.

The epicenter of Korea's whitewater rafting action is in Gangwon-do (province), east of Seoul. There are three popular destinations for river rafting in the mountainous province: Donggang (Dong River) in Yeongwol-gun, Naerincheon (Naerin Stream) in Inje-gun, and Hantangang in Cheolwon-gun, all located in Gangwon-do Province. The three fast-flowing, clear-water rivers boast great volumes of water and dynamic currents.
