Welcome to Danyang
A little gem of a resort town, Danyang (단양) is cosied right up against the mountains of Sobaeksan National Park, at a bend in the river Namhan-gang. This is small-town Korea at its most charming: you can stay at a riverfront motel and explore limestone caves, hiking trails and a one-of-a-kind Buddhist temple, basking in wooded mountain views wherever you go and paragliding down from peaks above town. It’s a great place to dawdle for a couple of days and just stay put. The name of the town means 'Cinnabar Sun': indeed, when the sun goes down over the hills and the river, have your camera handy for photogenic shots.
