Binggye valley of Uiseong is the best summer resort.

Binggye valley has a beautiful landscape so it has been selected as one of eight tourist attractions in Gyeongsangbuk-do. The canyon which has been originated from the mountain is awesome. The clean water is also amazing. It is surrounded by steep cliff. Various rocks have risen in the middle of the clean stream. Volcanic activities in the Cretaceous period of the Mesozoic Era made the mountain.

It was mentioned in “The annals of Sejong”. But Binggye valley became popular due to the mysterious natural landscape.

Binggye valley has been also called “ice mountain” as it has ice hole and wind hole. The stream has been called “Binggye”, and the village has been called “Binggye-ri”

It is located in Binggye-3ri, Chunsan-myeon. It is windy in hot summer, and warm in cold winter.

Binggye eight beautiful landscapes are extraordinary. Binghyeol (Ice Cave), Pungnyeong, Inam, Bingsanji five story stone pagoda are the main beautiful places in Binggye valley. Binghyeol is the most popular place in Binggye valley. All tourists drop by it. From every onset of spring, the water of the valley is frozen and it falls to four degrees below zero. But the ice melts from setting-in autumn, and the temperature rises three degrees above zero.

Besides Binghyeol, Punghyeol is the famous tourist attraction, too. After entering the crack of rocks, you would feel cold wind within five minutes.

Various Punghyeols in Binggye-ri are like refrigerators in the region.

I become solemn when I see the trace of Korean history.

While staying for a long time in Binggye valley, you would feel a chill even in hot summer. You'd better go to Tapsan Hot Springs when you are cold.
