CHEORWON, Jan. 28 (Korea Bizwire) — The 8th Cheorwon Hantan River Ice Trekking Festival ended on Monday after 10 days of river-trekking and sightseeing programs.
Despite the abnormally warm weather, this year’s festival attracted a significant number of tourists wanting to enjoy the Hantan River’s volcanic landscape.
While tourists were unable to actually walk on the river since it did not freeze, they were still able to enjoy Cheorwon’s beautiful landscape on a pontoon bridge installed for the occasion.
Cheorwon County in Gangwon Province attracted more than 140,000 visitors on the first weekend of the festival, and 300,000 by the end of the festivities.
