Okpo-eup

Originally, the area of today’s Okpo-myeon was under the jurisdiction of Daegu-bu. With the reshuffle of administrative units in 1914, however, three myeon (Okpo-myeon, Beophwa-myeon, and Seongpyeonggok-myeon) were integrated into one and renamed Okpo-myeon. Okpo-eup is located in the center of Dalseong-gun. Its total area and population are 48.96km2 and 20,083 people, respectively (as of April 2017). The Eup Office is located in Bonri-ri. Its southeastern part is surrounded by mountainous areas extending from Biseulsan Mountain. Rock blocks are scattered throughout the valley of Daebangsan Mountain (193m), attracting the attention of researchers as they are believed to be the result of periglaciation.

Gisegokcheon Stream flows north-northwest to south-southeast through the eastern part of Okpo-eup into Nakdonggang River. Yongyeonsa Temple is located in an area upstream. Guma Expressway and Masan-Daegu National Highway run through the northern part of Okpo-eup, and an intersection of the 88 Olympic Expressway is located in Bonri-ri. Dalseong Tunnel is located on the border between Songchon-ri (Okpo-eup) and Bonri-ri (Nongong-eup) at an elevation of 200m in the southeastern part of Geumgyesan Mountain. It is the only tunnel on the Guma Expressway. There are nine ris in Okpo-eup: Bonri-ri, Sindang-ri, Gyohang-ri, Gangrim-ri, Songchon-ri, Gangyeong-ri, Gise-ri, Bansong-ri, and Gimheung-ri.
