10th Pyeonchang Trout Festival

Category : Travel/Events / Community Events / Outdoor/Sports
Period :   Dec 26, 2016 ~ Jan 30, 2017

Introduction

The first town 700m above sea level!

The coldest with the most snow

The town of Pyeongchang.

 

During the cold winter, our ancestors have tied their houses to make the snow tunnel and kept themselves connected even in the great snow. When the river froze on the surface, they drilled a hole out to catch the trouts for their food. The place where our ancestors strived to in the freezing weather, now, we sublimate their endeavor in Pyeongchang Trout Festival as Snow, Ice, and Winter with Trout. With hands on ice, feel the thrill of the trout fishing of the fish roaming down the transparent ice. The Pyeongchang Trout Festival will surely give you the pleasure of a true winter experience with various programs.

Ancestors of the past have survived through the cold winter by bonding with the neighbor. They shared equal interest and work together to make the harsh winter a better time. The customs they protected were not just a means of survival but also a mean of passing down the spirits of community bonding. Though the method of survival has progressed in the modern age, the spirits the ancestors held should not be diminished. We, therefore pass on the minds to the next generation by annually holding the trout festival that once supported the lives of the past. >> Less more
