  • Information
    Soyosan Mountain on the outskirts of Dongducheon City is the most treasured mountain north of the Hangang River. Although it is relatively small, only standing 587.5 meters tall, it is covered by a lush forest, and dotted by waterfalls and peaks. On the slopes of Soyosan Mountain rest shrines commemorating Wonhyo and Uisang, two renowned Buddhist monks from the Silla Kingdom, and the Jajaeam Hermitage, a small temple where Wonhyo practiced asceticism. There are many small waterfalls including Wonhyopokpo Falls, Uisangpokpo Falls, and Cheongnyangpokpo Falls, which are popular destinations for visitors in the summer.
