Enjoying Hot Springs in Pine Forests


ULJIN, Sept. 2 (Korea Bizwire)The ’2015 Korean Hot Spring Festival’ will be held at Uljin from October 2 to October 4.

The festival will be held under the slogan ‘Walking through the Geumgang pine trees, looking at the East Sea and enjoying the hot springs’. Guerrilla events, family hiking contests and a seminar on developing hot springs will be held.

The water at Baegam Hot Springs is famous for its effects on chronic dermatitis and women’s diseases, as it contains a lot of sodium, fluorine and potassium.


Deokgu Hot Springs are the only hot springs in Korea that naturally gush out. Consisting of many helpful minerals, they are effective in enhancing health.

The local government also plans to attract more visitors by holding the ’13th Uljin Pine Mushroom Festival’ and the ’39th Songnyu Cultural Festival’ during the same period.
