Gyeongpo lake as well as marsh park is– as a lot of Korea– extensively tamed, with 2 roadways straight close to a lot of the lake as well as countless stroll methods utilized frequently by individuals appreciating the fresh winter season climate. Possibilities for actual shocks are not as well great.

Daegwallyeong Samyang Ranch is a brief flight from Pyeongchang joint, yet it increases right into the moutains, as well as great winter season tires are a need to (which I did not have). On the top, roadways are snowy as well as icy, though somewhat gotten rid of from hefty snow. In a primarily icy stream, in among minority open areas there were 3 charming Brownish Dippers. Great sights of Pallas ´ s Rosefinches, along with of Coal Tits, Marsh Tits, Japanese (Great) Tits, as well as Differed Tits, White-backed Woodpeckers as well as various other birds.
