Introduction : Cheongnyeongpo Cape, located on the upper stream of Namhangang River in Gwangcheon-ri, Yeongwol-gun, is known as the place of King Danjong’s exile. The area was designated as Scenic Site No.50 in December 2008. King Danjong (r.1452-1455, 6th King of the Joseon dynasty) was banished from the kingdom after being overthrown by his uncle, King Sejo. King Danjong was exiled on Cheongnyeongpo Cape, surrounded on three sides by water and a steep, wall-like rock called Yugyukbong on its west side. The cape is so isolated that it can only be reached by ferry.
Cheongnyeongpo Cape, a place where the 16-year-old dethroned King Danjong lived a tragic life in exile, is now known for its well-preserved scenery and the beauty of the nearby Seogang River.
