|Sanjeong Lake (포천 산정호수)|
|Sanjeong Lake is a main attraction of Pocheon, situated down in the valleys between majestic Myeongseongsan (Mt. Myeongseong), Mangbongsan (Mt. Mangbong), and Mangmubong (Mangmu Peak).
Meaning “lake as clear as a mountain well,” Sanjeong Lake was built as a reservoir to supply water to farmland in 1925. Thanks to its surrounding attractions, the lake attracts many visitors each year. Promenades along the lake are popular for couples as well as tourists who stay in the nearby hotels. Beautiful fog often rises from the lake in spring and fall, making boating at night quite picturesque.
Hikers frequent Myeongseongsan in spring and fall; visitors love skating on the lake in winter. The lake is also surrounded by an amusement park, swimming pools, sledding facilities, and spa amenities, attracting many family visitors. Local restaurants are renowned for their delicious, wholesome food made using freshwater snails and mushrooms. Other local favorites include Maeuntang (spicy fish stew), Dotorimuk (acorn jelly), Sanchae Baekban (a bowl of rice served with wild herbs and vegetables), and Deodeok Gui (a grilled dish made from Codonopsis lanceolata root).
