Gangwon Snow Festa, a global festival brimming with visual pleasure and enjoyable experiences!
Hoengseong produces the greatest amount of deodeok (Codonopsis lanceolata) in Korea, responsible for 26% of nation's production. Deodeok is sensitive to the environment, so the cleanness of the harvesting environment plays a big role in scent, taste as well as medicinal effects. Hoengseong is rich in organic matter with optimal climate, produces clean water with deep soil, making it perfect for deodeok cultivation, and incessant research and technology help maintain its top quality.
Hoengseong has long-standing reputation for Hanwoo, Korean native cattle. Tourists never fail to visit popular hanwoo restaurants, and hanwoo enthusiasts keep visiting Hoengseong one after another. Although its area is mountainous, rice farming is developed. Therefore, there are enough rice straws for raising hanwoo, and broad grasslands for hanwoo to thrive help the cause. Furthermore, high daily temperature difference, clean water, and natural environment all contribute to Hoengseong Hanwoo's great taste and savory texture.
