Every year Republic of Korea Army special forces have military training in Taebaek Mountains in Pyeongchang county. This is a great place for training to resist cold — there is a lot of snow in winter, and the temperatures fall as low as –20°. Soldiers strip to the waist, get used to low temperatures and learn to fight in extreme conditions. The constant threat from the DPRK demands them to be shape.
