The clear, fine scenery of the lake, and the group dancing of the migratory birds to the dawn sky


Every first day of January, ‘Saebaragi festival’- a New Year celebration of Cheorwon- is progressed in Togyo Reservoir. Togyo Reservoir is an artificial reservoir of large scale built in the purpose of efficient supply of water for industrial uses, in order to create a safe farming ground of Cheorwon plains, in 1972. With the area measure (338.84 hectares), pondage (165,680 tons), catchment area (2,370 hectares), and benefiter area (1,553.7 hectares), the reservoir irrigates water to different agricultural lands of the districts-Yangja-ri, Daewi-ri, Jangheung-ri, Odeok-ri.


Togyo Reservoir, with its fine view, is located at the side of the entry road of the second tunnel which is the center of Cheorwon Security Tour. Not only diverse kinds of fishes dwell in the clear water, but the water also becomes a sleeping spot for the migrant birds flying for the winter.  Rare and endangered species like the red-crowned cranes and white-naped cranes are included among the birds. A group of wild geese group dancing to the winter dawn sky creates a scene that drives the watchers to awe. Therefore, the Cheorwon County provided a watching house for the comfort of birdwatchers and travelers.
