Introduction
Yongyeon CaveYongyeon Cave is located along the lower part of the ridge of Gumdaebong peak, the pivot of Baekdudaegan. This cave is located at 930 meters above sea level, making it the highest in Korea. It has been designated as Gangwon Province's Regional Monument ¢à 39, and has a total length of 843 meters. This limestone cave is full of a variety of stalagmites, stalactites, stone pillars, cave pearls, cave corals and others. There is also a spacious plaza 50 meters wide and 130 meters long, and a rhythm pond, all creating a mystic sight. Twelve kinds of animals live inside the cave, including bats and blind shrimps, adding its mystic beauty.

A 1.1-km-long romantic Yongyeon train runs from the parking lot to the cave entrance. There is also a 3.1-km-long mountain eco-system path linking Yongyeon Cave, Gumdaebong and Geomnyongso, the source of the Hangang.
