Sambuyeon Falls, Cheorwon, Gangwon Province: A Dragon within this waterfall?

Located in SinCheorwon-ri, Galmal-eup, Cheorwon County, Gangwon Province - Sambuyeon Falls (Hanja: 三釜淵瀑布)  is a 20-meter high waterfall. The waterfall has a mystic impression with water cascading all year round without ever drying and surrounded by strangely shaped rocks. The waterfalls in three different areas, creating a shape that resembles a Gamasot, a traditional Korean metal cauldron used for making rice since the old days. There is also a local legend that a dragon flew into the air from this waterfall, hence the name Yonghwa-dong ('yong' is a Sino-Korean word for dragon) for the village.

The area is very clean as there are no restaurants and convenience facilities. About a kilometer away is Yeougol Village, which is the site of the legend where a father who once killed a fox almost had a fox marry his son.
