Taebaek-si

Taebaek-si is located at the southern tip of Gangwon-do. Seokpo-myeon, Bonghwa-gun and Sangdong-eup, Yeongwol-gun are located in the south; Dogye-eup, Samcheok-gun in the east and Gohan-eup, Jeongseon-gun in the west, thereby bordering with one gun(county) in Gyeongsangbuk-do and three cities and guns in Gangwon-do. Baekdu Daegan passes through from the north to southwest. Taebaek is the backbone of the Korean peninsula, the root of our land, and the source of such important rivers as the Nam Han and the Nakdong.

This highland city is located at an average altitude of 650 meters above sea level. It has a longer winter and receives more snow than other areas, and is thus blessed with beautiful snow-covered scenery. Summers are short and cool and almost completely insect-free, with an average temperature is 19¡æ. In addition, Taebaek is located just an hour's drive from the East Sea, and is thus in close proximity not just to valleys and mountains, but to beaches as well.
