Diving in an indoor pool might sound boring as there are no tropical fish or coral reefs to admire below the surface. But, before you swear off indoor diving, consider a dive into Gapyeong’s K-26 pool— the deepest pool in Asia. Ranking in at around 26 meters deep (the second deepest is in Taiwan at 21 meters), K-26 challenges experienced divers and first-timers alike. It is a great spot to practice freediving and scuba diving without having to leave for the ocean in freezing cold weather.
