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.

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.

This is an artificial lake up behind Soyang Dam, you can ride a boat around to a temple. The water level has been dropping over the years, but there's still plenty left. I enjoy cycling up and then coasting back down again.

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 reach on public transport. There is a nice walk across the dam, up a short steep hill to a pagoda with fine views. The visitor centre and exhibition doesn't cater for English unfortunately. There is a hydro electric plant that generates 200,000kWhr and the dam holds back 29 million tonnes of water. Worth a visit but don't miss the boat ride and walk to a stunning ancient temple.

I and my husband did one day trip Soyang Lake- via famous Dakgalbi Chucheon restaurant- via A Twosome Place Cafe Chunseon Gubongsan branch. 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 Tongnamu dakgalbi jib (통나무 닭갈비), not so fancy for us but its a MUST TRY restaurant in Chucheon. The mentioned A Twosome Place had a stunning view and turn to be super romantic place with sunset view <3 <3 <3

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 have time, you can take a nice 20-minute inexpensive ferry ride across the dam to a small temple on a peaceful and quiet island. You can take a taxi to the dam but then easily find two or three buses back to downtown Chuncheon or Chuncheon Station. This is totally worth a visit. You have to love Gangwon-do!

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

It was hot out and all I wanted to do was jump in the water but they told me that the water is really cold and you can't go swimming. Bucheon was such an amazing place in the country side surrounded by nature. It is much slower paced than Seoul, smaller shops and locations. Very nice

Make sure to get the number 11 bus as the 150 goes on a much longer route. The lake is very beautiful with a viewing platform up a short but very steep hill on the far side of the dam.
