3 ways to enjoy Cheongyang

Cheongyang-gun, South Korea

It's warmer than usual, saying 'Dong-gun disappeared'. If you don't want to spend a season without a change of memories, let's go to Chongyang where Chilgapsan is where winter is more enjoyable than summer when Anakne's Baeksam is soaked.
Just look at it! Ceiling arc bridge
How would you feel standing on a rocking bridge that is 207 meters long and 1.5 meters wide? Located at the tip of Chilgapsan Mountain, you can enjoy the thrill of the trekking all over with the luck of seeing the world's largest peppers and goji berry. Cheongyang Chilgapsan Cheolho Lake is the longest boasting bridge in Korea.
After the completion of 2009, an entertainment program visited and became a specialty of Cheongyang. At the beginning of this place, the bean field hawk, which appears in the song `` Chilapsan, '' greets us by stealing a hoe on one hand and a sweat flowing from the other. When you walked while appreciating the hearts of mothers during difficult times, you can face the ceiling of the ceiling. I am overwhelmed by the longer bridge than I thought, the picturesque ceiling, and the giant tower of 16m in size.
The beautiful view of the ceiling and the bridge
But the real pleasure to find here is the rocky bridge! The ceiling arc rocking bridge is designed to swing about 30 ~ 40cm. It's a bit more recoil than you'd expect to go on a tightrope, and you'll grasp the handle tightly. If you have less than you think, stop and look down. Looking down the ceiling of the middle of the bridge adds to the breathtaking feeling. Even if you want to enjoy more thrills, don't let them stumble for safety.
The tower of the pepper model is dignified.
If you are planning a pregnancy couple can not go too far. Cheongho Lake below Chilap Mountain has a legend about dragons and tigers.

Hwangryong, who was waiting for the ascension of the millennia, dedicated his body to make a bridge to save the life of a child, and saw the tiger as a spirit to protect Chilap Mountain. If you cross the mountain and climb Chilap Mountain, you will be inspired by Hwang Ryong and Tiger, and you will have a healthy child.
Rock of Hope
In addition, you can also see Wish Rock here, where the story of the birth of a child born with wishes is extremely fulfilling.

Called the Alps of Chungnam, Cheongyang Alps Village
There is a village nestled at the foot of Chilgapsan, the Alps of Chungnam. It is as high as a ceiling and is called the ceiling. It is more familiar to us under the name of 'Alps Village' with an exceptionally beautiful ceiling.
Snow Covered Wish Tunnel
Unlike other villages where there are many summer experiences, people visit here in winter. Alpine villages are not only steep, but also looking north, so rivers do not have sun all day. The temperature is also 3-4 degrees lower than other regions, making it vulnerable to farming. The locals, however, created a festival in which the poor natural environment was transformed into the best gift. The ice fountain is used as an ice fountain festival, and a sloped mountain is used as a sledding slope. Instead, it is an ice fountain festival where you can fully feel the countryside.
Alps that are likely to depart soon
The Alps Village Ice Fountain Festival is being held this year with the cooperation of villagers. It consists of seven themes including attractions, things to do, things to eat, things to eat, snacks, sleeps and things to see around. Although there are some unpleasant parts of the sights due to abnormal temperatures, it is not enough for children to enjoy.
Alps village where dogs come to play
The highlight of this place is ice bobsleigh! In the colorful light tunnel, the children's clear laughter runs through the ice.

Even the foods that are indispensable at the festival can be felt in the countryside. Baked with oak firewood and delicious roasted sweet potatoes and hot roasted chestnuts are very popular.

In addition to this, there is also a charm point such as Sagol Tteokguk and Sagol Beef Soup Rice.

Star Park, Chilgapsan Observatory, facing the Sun
If you want to combine children's education and play on a fine day, visit the Chilgapsan Observatory Star Park located on the hillside of Chilgapsan. Opened in 2009 and operating as an astronomical themed science museum, it is more popular because it allows you to directly observe the sun as well as stars.
Korea's largest refractive telescope installed in the observation room
Observations take place in the main and secondary observation rooms on the third floor. In the observation room where the largest refractor is installed in Korea, sunspots and irises are observed. The secondary observation room, designed as a hemispherical sliding dome that surrounds the main observation room, observes the objects in the night sky such as planets, nebulae, and clusters at night. The astronomical projection room, where you can project constellations and celestial objects by projecting a virtual object like a real night sky on a 10m dome screen, is by far the most popular program that embodies the mystery of the universe in the hearts of children.
Different types of telescopes installed in the auxiliary observation room
Cheongyang offers a variety of experiences, including a jewel-free scenery and nostalgic winter festivals in rural villages and astronomical programs that can bring you closer to the sky. Why don't you visit this place for the first time this year?
