along the river
A romantic 133-km bike ride
Everything you see is like a pretty picture while riding along the Yeongsan River Bike Path. It is such a beautiful image on a spring day with the blue sky, barley fields and the water slowly flowing through the Yeongsan River while sparrows chatter in the background. The fields and river winding around the mountain add to the scenery of the riverside that could be something in a postcard.
The Yeongsan River Bike Path is 133 km long and extends along the riverside from the Damyang Dam Water and Culture Center to the Hwangpo sailboat ticket booth near the Mokpo mouth of the Yeongsan River. The bike path features the ‘5 attractions of Yeongsan’ where you can take a break and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Yeongsan River.
The 1st attraction is Yeongsan Sukjo, which looks spectacular at sunset, and the 2nd is the Sigyeongjeong Pavillon, where a nice breeze from the Gok River blows through the reed fields. The 3rd attraction is the Seokgwanguibeom where you can watch Hwangpo sailboats from Seokgwanjeong. The 4th attraction is the Juksanchunhyo where you can fully enjoy the spring flowers of Naju Juksanbo. The 5th attraction is Guemseongsangun, the golden Naju fields that can viewed from Yeongsanpogu.
The biker-recommended course is just 4 km long and located behind the Naju image theme park, where you can enjoy the nice views of the Yeongsan River and other tourist attractions. You can also have a picnic in the waterside park.
