Huge Dam and lake

Maybe it's just me but the dam is more interesting than the lake! The lake is pretty and the surroundings beautiful but the dam is apparently the largest rock fill dams in Asia. I... read more

Maybe it's just me but the dam is more interesting than the lake! The lake is pretty and the surroundings beautiful but the dam is apparently the largest rock fill dams in Asia. I guess there are bigger dams using a different technology but this is pretty impressive. There are several busses running frequently from Chuncheon so it's easy to... More

You could see a big dam if you visit Soyang Lake. After visiting the Nami Island, you could visit Soyang Lake as your next destination. Soyang lake is a quiet place with beautiful scenery.

Soyang lake is truly a beautiful sight. The lake is nice, but enough nicer are the mountains. If you look downstream, on the other side of the dam, you can almost see the city of Chuncheon, which is also very nice. I'd really recommand walking all the way across the dam to reach the dam on top of a small... More

If you are a road trip lover, this itinerary is highly recommended. The scenery was spectacular and ideal for photo taking at Soyang Dam. Sky was crystal clear and so fresh. For famous dakgalbi restaurant, we tried... More

The dam is pretty large but what makes this place so amazing is the scenery all around it. I got at least 20 good shots on my camera. You can walk across the bridge, walk up the hill, get some pictures at the pagoda on the hill and get a bird's eye view of the whole area. Then if you... More

I honestly only had 20min in this place as I was rushing to catch a bus but this place was beautiful! Really vast and huge. Would love to spend hours there.

The dam is worth going to see. There are a few restaurants in the area and the area itself good for taking pictures. If you don't have a car you can get to the area by public bus for cheap. They have yours on the dam if you're up for it.

You can enjoy giant dam and visit temple via 20 minute's boating. Temple itself is not big. But calm and peaceful.

Very nice place- amazing to see such a huge dam in real life- had never seen one before! Went to the temple which was beautiful, had nice food on the walk down and a lovely boat trip over to the island.
