Jeongseon Auraji Rail Bike - Gangwon-do, South Korea

There are both 2 and 4 seaters bike. The 2 seaters bike is the red bike and the 4 seaters are yellow one. Price are different. I went there with my family in spring so my parents just sit at the front. I and my brother sat at the back and rode the bicycle. When arrived that place, it was windy and cold. The distance for the track was 7.5 kilometers.

While I was riding the bicycle, the surrounding area and the weather was good. Could see the mountain and the river. I went there in spring so although it was sunshine, it was not hot. If you went there in summer, it'd better to come in the morning.


Here was the destination. The staff would take photo for us while we was riding the bicycle and when we arrived the destination, we could see the our photo in frame. It costs 10,000 won. I bought it because it was not expensive and it was our family photo. Once, we arrived the destination, very tired.

    1. Hi

      1. I'm not sure about taxi fare.
      2. From Jeongseon Intercity Bus Terminal, take bus to Yeoryang (06:10-17:35, 10 daily departures) and take local bus to Gujeol-ri station.
      3. The rail bike starts from Gujeol-ri station and ends at Auraji Station. When you arrive destination, you can take bus to Jeongseon or can take free train back to Gujeol-ri station.
