Magnificent waterfall in Mt MyohyangJanuary 28, 2023
Ryongyon Falls are located in Sangwon Valley in Mt Myohyang which is famous for the unparalleled scenery.
The two-tiered waterfall with a gentle gradient is the most magnificent and beautiful among the many falls in the mountain.
It is surrounded by granite cliffs where pines, birches, bitterbushes, magnolias, lilac bushes and maples grow.
It is 84 metres high and 3 metres wide and cascades down for 105 metres all the year round. In the rainy season its water volume increases and it makes a roaring sound.
Its name is derived from a mysterious pond on its upper part.
The waterfall presents a spectacular view along with Sangwon Hermitage.
