View of Baegun Valley

A rock mainly observed in Baegun Valley is Mesozoic Jurassic granite and you can observe various geological structures including strata due to tectonic movement. In the valley, dike penetrating granite is observed and you can see the traces of strata where these dikes are dislocated each other. It can be also seen that vertical and joints of vertical and horizontal directions are developed in the upstream of Baegun Valley. This is a scenically outstanding attraction because small ponds and falls are developed by erosion of the valley river in addition to this geological structure.
