    Introduction
    Gyeongpoho Lake, which means “clear as a mirror,” is located 6 kilometers northeast of Gangneung, and is also called Gunjaho Lake. Gyeongpoho Lake was formed when the mouth of a bay was closed by sand and pebbles brought in by the sea currents. It is famous as a destination site for migratory birds. It used to be a large lake with a circumference of 12 kilometers, but it diminished because of the accumulation of dirt and sand.


    Gyeongpoho Lake was famous as a fishing site as it is clean and clear but due to pollution it was designated as a nature protection site and fishing has been banned.
