Baeksasil Valley (백사실계곡)
Place Category: Outdoors & Recreation and Nature
Baeksasil Valley in Seoul is a historic site (Baekseokdongcheon, Famous Site No. 36) that rests amid untouched natural surroundings. The valley is a habitat to a diverse amount of animals, including salamanders, frogs, minnows, and crayfish. There are also wild boar stings from time to time so be careful. The preservation value of this area is especially high as the valley is home to a large colony of salamanders, which are indicator species of the clean water and a protected wildlife species of Seoul.
Baeksasil Valley is a tucked away treasure in the bustling city. The path along the area’s thick forest and natural valleys provide an excellent getaway. Since the area is a habitat for several protected species, visitors are asked to refrain from dipping their feet in the Valley’s waters while exploring the scenery. The entrance to the valley is located past the Sanmotungi Café.
