Guryong Valley is also known as Yonghogugok Valley. Legend has it that every year on April 1 by the lunar calendar, nine dragons descended from heaven to the valley, where they each occupied one waterfall to enjoy themselves there before ascending back to heaven. Owing to its beautiful scenic views, the nearby village is named “Hogyeong” (a village with a fine view). The whole of Guryong Valley is like a gigantic rock with clear water running down between the rocks into the valley, creating waterfalls and ponds. Magnificent scenes unfold here according to the four seasons.
