gangwon-do (province) is mainly divided into the yeongdong (east of mountain range) and yeongseo (west of mountain range) with the taebaek mountain ranges that are developed along the east side of korean peninsula.
gangwon-do is largely divided into yeongdong on the east side of the taebaek summit, the backbone of korean peninsula, and yeongseo on the west side of that ridgeline.
ground transportation between the yeongdong and yeongseo regions is sometimes inconvenient (especially in winter), as it requires going over high mountains passes such as the daegwal-ryeong, misi-ryeong, jinbu-ryeong and hangye-ryeong.

 Yeongdong at AllExperts
Yeongdong is the name of the region coinciding with eastern Gangwon Province in South Korea and eastern Kangwŏn Province in North Korea.
Although Yeongseo describes the western half of the two provinces and Gwandong describes both halves together, "Yeongdong" is used much more frequently in South Korea than either of the other two names, and may be taken loosely to refer to the entire region.
The region's name lends itself to the Yeongdong Railway Line and Yeongdong Expressway, which are major transportation corridors connecting Seoul to Gangwon.

 ::: Welcome to Gangwon-do :::
Ground transportation between the Yeongdong and Yeongseo regions is sometimes inconvenient (especially in the winter), since it requires going over high mountains passes such as the Daegwanryeong Misiryeong, Jinburyeong and Hangyeryeong.
The Yeongseo inland regions vary greatly in average temperature due to being affected by the continental climate alternating between severe cold and intense heat.
In the highlands of mountainous regions, the temperatures continue to be relatively low, resulting in pleasant cool temperatures during the summertime, but in the winter the severe cold and high quantity of snow are characteristic, and therefore these areas are suitable for various winter sports including skiing.

 Welcome to Gangwon   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Gangwon-do Province can be roughly divided into 2 regions, Yeongdong (the eastern part, on the coast) and Yeongseo (the western part) with the main ridge of the Taebaek Mountain Range, which is the backbone of the Korean Peninsula, as the divide.
The Yeongdong Area has superb landscapes with many passes and gorges scattered between mountains and the East Sea, while the Yeongseo Area is mostly composed of highlands, deep valleys between lofty peaks.
Yeongdong has few flat areas since steep mountains almost reach to the East Sea, and many high passes like Daegwal-ryeong Pass, Hangye-ryeong Pass, Jinbu-ryeong Pass, Guryong-ryeong Pass and Jin-gogae Hill make the transportation inconvenient.
