Tucked away within Eungbong Mountain, our Lost Valley tour takes you to one of Korea's largest gorges. We'll hike up the gorge for 1 hour, on an easy, gently inclined trail. Once we have climbed up to our starting point, we'll enjoy a snack and put our wetsuits on. From this point, we make our way back down - in the water! By swimming, sliding, jumping and abseiling, we'll make a unique descent of this valley the likes of which has never been offered in Korea before. Our guides know the safest and most fun places to jump and slide - unlocking the secrets of this very special place.
