Gangchon Rail Park 강촌레일파크

Many people know of this Rail Biking from Running Man or Daddy Where are we going – popular variety shows us another beauty of Chuncheon. This rail park operates from 3 stations and after much decision, we decided to get to from Gimyujeong Station to Gangchon Station because its the most easy access. We took Muguanghwa train to Gimyujeong station and took our very first rail biking from there. It’s approximately 8km and its not even tiring, or maybe the weather in March was really good. Gangchon Rail Park is a popular attraction among tourist because you get to ride one the ‘bike’ along the old railroad along the Bukhangang River.

      Hi Hi!! :)

      Train tickets to the station? You can just buy the tickets at the station near your guesthouse.

      As for the railpark ticket, you had to book it in advance before reaching the railpark :)

      My guesthouse owner actually helped us to book in advance as their ticket run out quite quickly! :)
