Andeok Valley 안덕계곡
Also called Gamsan-cheon(stream) or Changgo-cheon. It is a valley that begins at the northeast of the Dol oreum and runs around the border of Andeok-myeon to form a stream at the bottom of Changgo-cheon. An exuberant broad-leaved forest lines both sides of the valley. This primitive sub-tropical forest was designated and protected as the Natural Monument No. 377. It is said that the high mountains rose after 7 days of heavy rain and earthquakes. The streams were said to have flown down, turning and bending at the rocks, forming a valley that calmed the soul and brought virtue. The place was thus called Andeok. Many scholars have come to the Andeok Valley, including Kim, Jeong-hee and Jeong, On who were exiled here and fostered their future students while enjoying the exquisite scenery.
