Gangneung is located in the center of East-taebaeksan Mountain, the center of the Korean Peninsula. It borders Donghae to the east, Nae-myeon in Hongcheon-gun and Jinbu-myeon and Daegwallyeong-myeon in Pyeongchang-gun to the west, the whole area of Donghae, Imgae-myeon and Buk-myeon in Jeongseon-gun to the south, and Hyeonbuk-myeon and Hyeonnam-myeon in Yangyang-gun to the north. It is bordered by 5 cities and counties in Gangwon-do.
Gangneung has been blessed with nature’s beauty and there are no boundaries between nature and the city. Gangneung’s morning, day and night time flow alongside nature. People promenade through the forest trails filled with the scent of pine and organize their thoughts in peace. They dive into the blue waves of the sea in the afternoon and watch the moon rise beyond the horizon at night and sunrise again for a new day. The city itself enchants visitors with a vista that stretches as far as we can see from the mountain to the East Sea. You will find something new to appreciate every time you visit this city filled with grace, quiet, and sometimes youthful energy.
As a coastal city, Gangneung has a relatively mild winter and a cool summer. The four seasons of Gangneung are very distinct. Each season paints a new landscape that draws our attention and symbolizes the distinct beauty that comes with the passage of time. From spring to winter, come and enjoy how beautiful it is.
