Here is our fourth lake in our four part series of the lakes and reservoirs that are a must see. Straddling the very edge of the greater Daegu area you’ll find the Neighborhood of Dongmyeong. One of the hidden jewels of Dongmyeong is the large reservoir located on the road leading up to Palgong Mountain. We saved this one for last because of the stunning views.
You can take a stroll around the reservoir.
Hike through the lush trees by heading up one of the trekking course entrances near the reservoir.
Take in views of the countryside and surrounding farms.
Enjoy the landscape.
