Danyang County, Chungbuk had more than 10 million tourists per year for two consecutive years.
On June 18, the district revealed that it did not expect many visitors due to the fine dust and disordered atmosphere surrounding the elections. However, Danyang attracted 3,392,074 tourists between January and May.
Danyang's various festivals led to the county surpassing 1 million visitors in a single month.
The county's Dodamsambong Peaks recorded the greatest number of visitors at 351,475.
This was followed by Sainam Rocks (151,226), Mancheonha Skywalk (111,055) and Gudambong Peak (100,306).
The Suyanggae Prehistory Museum also recorded a monthly average of 15,000 visitors since April, thanks to the popularity of its newly-built light tunnel.
The Suyanggae Tunnel first opened last July, and saw 121,755 visitors in the first 6 months, collecting over KRW 100 million in admission fees.
The statistical data of the tourists were surveyed through unmanned measuring instruments and ticket sales at 22 major tourist attractions in Danyang, including the Dodamsambong Peaks.
