Preserving the clear and clean nature inside the Civilian Control Line, Dutayeon- the greatest habitat of lenoks in Korea


Dutayeon retained its natural environment because of the control of entrance for the last 50 years. Located at the inner side of the Civilian Control Line, Dutayeon is both a tributary of incomes from the Military Demarcation Line and also a route by 32 kilometers to Mt. Geumgang. It was not stepped by the people for a long period of time, but the public were allowed to enter to see its beauty since the year 2013.


Rocks spread around Dutayeon, where a small waterfall of 10 meter length forms a pond. Dutayeon is known for its property as the largest habitat of the Brachymystax lenok, a natural monument no.74. Lenoks live in clear and cold water and they go up to the upstream of Suip River through the falls during the spawning period. A dense wood, which reminds you of a primeval forest, is fomented from the roadside. Because of this environmental feature, you could seldom face an elk or a wild boar.


A certain procedure must be done in order to visit Dutayeon. You should go to the Pyeonghwanuri St. Bideuk Inquiry office or to the Bangsan-myeon Pyeonghwanuri St. Imokjeong Inquiry office. After you fill up the Request for entrance and pledge and present them with your ID, you will receive a tag (tracking collar). Then you could enter using a bicycle or walking.
