Sabuk (사북) Gangwon-do

Sabuk is a small town, nestled in the Taebaek mountain range. As a result of its location, the climate is cooler than most of the rest of Korea – in summer and in winter! It was formerly a coal-mining town, but all the mines have subsequently closed down. The nearest town to Sabuk is Gohan – Yeongwol and Taebaek are also fairly close by.
