The basalt valley with the wonderful scenery of Hantangang River, and the famous sights of Cheorwon that Im Kkeokjeong was active at the Joseon Dynasty
Goseokjeong pavilion, that is one of eight scenic views of Cheorwon, encompasses Goseok rock, pavilion, and the basalt valley around this area. King Jinpyeong of the Silla Dynasty(610) built a two-story pavilion next to Goseok Rock and gave a name, Goseokjeong. It has been said that Im Kkeokjeong who was a righteous outlaw had been living in seclusion in the stone castle on the opposite side of Goseokjeong at King Myeongjong of the Joseon Dynasty(1560). The pavilion was destroyed by fire at the Korean War, and it was restored in 1971, and then, it was reconstructed and maintained in 1989. The natural cave that Im Kkeokjeong hid remains in the 10m-tall giant mountaintop with fantastic shaped rocks located in the middle of the river.
Goseokjeong has the most magnificent view in Hantangang River. It is a unique scenery due to the basalt valley on the one side and the granite cliff on the other side. Now, it became a national attraction, so many people have visited. There are Jiktang Falls located 2km the upstream and Sundam Valley located 2km downstream from here. Also, the lawn and amusement facilities attract the family tourists.
