Soisan Mountain & Jaesongpyeong Plain
- Location Sayori, Cheorwon-eup, Cheorwon-gun
Soisan Mountain, a small but famous mountain, stands 362 meters above sea level and boasts a view of the unspoiled nature, overlooking the vast plains. Looking out forwards, you can see the highlands, the capital city of Taebongkukdoseong Fortress Site, and the Pyeonggang Plateau. The view of the scenery in the direction of Daema-ri in spring makes you feel calm as if a salt pond were filled with water.
One of the nine scenic spots in Cheorwon is the “Jaesongpyeong Plain,” which can be seen from Soisan Mountain. Jaesongpyeong Plain was a crown hunting forest where logging and cultivation was prohibited so that kings could hunt or the military could train here during the Joseon period. Now, it is a vast plain. Plains turn into huge lakes when water is poured for rice planting, making people feel as if they were holding water in a salt pond. In particular, the scenery of the golden field in autumn, when the ears of rice ripen to be yellow, is a feast for the eyes.
In addition, the Ecological Forest Paths, where you can see the ecological environment preserved by Soisan Mountain while walking along the natural path, as well as the Mine Flower Paths, which are reminiscent of a mine safety zone and GOP, are all places that show the history of our divided nation and the hope that blooms within. Currently, they become a Dulle-gil (Hanyeoul-gil Course 5) that attracts tourists.
