The festival taking place in Hwacheon in Gangwon province. A virtually untouched region is known as the first area in Korea that freezes over in winter and the river is covered with a thick layer of ice!
You all can try out the ice fishing, experience drilling small holes into the ice and those who are feeling brave can try to catch mountain trout with their bare bands. As well as fun activities and performances there is also an exhibition of ice sculptures that took 20 weeks to prepare. Helpful staff is available to ensure that even first-timers get a catch! Enjoy the bounty right on site as sashimi on the grill by locals! Delicious!
