Nearby Activities & Locations

Dodamsambong & Stone Gate

Dodamsambong is one of the eight scenic sights found in Danyang. Dodamsambong is three rocky peaks jutting out of the Namhan River. According to a legend, the three rocks represent a man, his wife, and a mistress. The man and wife loved each other, but were unable to have children. They found the mistress so they could get a male heir, and the mistress eventually did fall pregnant and have a child. When the child was born however, the mistress began to taunt the wife and mistreat the wife. When the heavens saw them, they turned all three into the peaks we see today, with the biggest being the husband, the second biggest the mistress, and the third biggest and the one further away from the other two the wife.

If you walk along the river where Dodamsambong is, you will see a pavilion and some steps leading up to it. If you go up these steps and continue on the path there, you can come across the second most famous scenic view of Danyang, the Stone Gate. The Stone Gate is a rainbow shaped rock formation that looks like it was carved out of the mountain by man, but it is natural and took many years to form. You can get a great view of the river and the mountains through it.
You can go to these two locations by taxi from the Danyang Bus Terminal. There is no entrance fee since you will not be parking a car there.

Mancheonha Skywalk

The Mancheonha Skywalk is a great place for you to get an amazing view of Danyang, the river, and the mountains surrounding everything. While there you can also test your fear of heights with the floor at the end of the observation deck being glass. No matter where you are at the top, you will get a great place for taking photos. While at the Skywalk, you can also zipline down the mountain to the parking lot. The shuttle bus to the top of the mountain where the Skywalk is costs 3,000won. If you want to take the zipline down the shuttle and zipline costs 30,000won. The best way to get to the Skywalk is by taxi from Danyang Bus Terminal.

Gosu Cave

Gosu Cave is a huge limestone cave that was formed over 450 million years ago. It is known as the “Underground Palace” and is Korea’s “Natural Monument No. 256”. The cave is 5.4 kilometers long but people visiting the cave are limited to just 1.7 kilometers for exploring. Walk along the metal pathways installed in the cave and see all the different geographical wonders in there. The entrance fee to get into the cave is 11,000won, but if you go paragliding first and then head to the cave and show them your ticket for paragliding they will give you a discount of 10% making the entrance fee 9,900won. The best way to get to the cave is to just walk from Danyang Bus Terminal. There is a bridge across the street from the bus terminal that you need to walk across. Keep walking straight until you get to a point where you can turn left or right. You need to go right to get to where the cave is. Keep walking along that road until you see a bunch of little shops and restaurants, and you will see the entrance to the cave and the ticket kiosk.
