Dong-River Cistar plays a key role in the journey to Yeongwol in connection with existing tourism products and resources. This facility has developed local tourism resources-thus far exploited in the summer season only-for use in all four seasons by proposing diversify feature-oriented programs and spaces for this resort, including a spa, a four-seasons sledging slope, extreme sports, a water park deck, and star theme. The greatest theme is to rediscover the value of Yeongwol. An environmental-friendly layout has been introduced by placing artificial facilities away from the banks of the Dong River, which is a natural habitat for otters, and by minimizing damage to the natural environment by placing facilities on existing farmland in order to utilize the river’s clean environmental resources.
