Description
The second installment of Fascinating Tourist Destinations in Korea introduces Gungnamji Pond in Buyeo, the Sheep Ranch in Daegwallyeong, Cheonjiyeon Waterfall in Jeju Island and Dinosaur Ridge on Mt. Seoraksan.

Gungnamji Pond in Buyeo
The welcoming wooden bridge unfolds widely over the pond. When the bridge is crossed, a cozy pavilion awaits. This pavilion appears to be floating on a small island. Thought to be built during the reign of King Mu of the Baekje Dynasty, Gungnamji Pond came to be called so in accordance with the record in "The Chronicles of the Three States": "a pond was dug to the south of the palace." At the pond surrounded with willow trees, visitors can be immersed in quiet tranquility.

Daegwallyeong Sheep Ranch
The herds of sheep are scattered like the white balls of strings over the extensive green fields at 850~900 m above sea level. The grandeur of the Taebaek Mountain and the green grasslands of Daegwallyeong converge to create a picturesque landscape canvas. Taking a leisure walk on the 1.2km open-air trail, you will feel a deep sense of inner peace. Depending on the season, the Ranch presents different landscapes ranging from verdant green to the beauty of snow-covered fields.

Cheonjiyeon Waterfall in Jeju Island
A pond created by the sky meeting the earth. Looking like a dented pool, it lies in a thick forest packed with various subtropical and warm temperature zone evergreens and ferns. Overwhelming the onlookers is the waterfall that falls furiously from 22 meters high, with a rugged precipice marked by rocks of fantastic shape. Nearby, Dampalsu tree (Elaeocarpus sylvestris var. ellipticus), marbled eel and other natural monuments and rare plants add to the joy of visitors.

Dinosaur Ridge on Mt. Seoraksan
Rugged mountain peaks evoke the image of a dinosaur backbone. The dinosaur ridge that leads from Madeungnyeong Ridge to Muneomi Hill is the representative ridge of the Mt. Seoraksan that runs from north to south, splitting the mountain into Oe Seorak (outer Seorak) and Nae Seorak (inner Seorak). The Dinosaur Ridge is a naturally formed observatory. Visitors who climb over the dinosaur's back will be rewarded with a view of both Oe Seorak (outer Seorak) and Nae Seorak (inner Seorak). The grandeur of Mother Nature that visitors encounter during the robust hike will enable a heartfelt experience of deep solemnity.
