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.
the station that looks really traditional 🙂
less than 5 mins walk away from the subway (its pretty easy to navigate)
The building is construct in a library of books concept. It’s interesting how it actually look like in real.
There’s timing for our railway, so make sure you won’t be late for it.
(we booked everything via online – with help of our guesthouse owner ^^)
As we ride, we got to see the pretty scenery along the railway track.
and we got to into the ‘happening’ tunnels~
Stopover for a good 5minutes for a toilet break or grab some snacks
Railway biking that cameos in either 2 or 4. Hence family of 4 gets to ride together too~
and there’s a free shuttle bus to send us back to Gim Yu Jeong Station.
Here’s the video I took via Instagram.

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