Life Saving Waterfall
This summer, I decided to join the summer retreats in Wolmyeongdong. Every summer, the Wolmyeongdong Recreation Center has a summer program for visitors, so I wanted to visit at least once.
The only down side was that it was really hot this year, especially during mid-day.
Fortunately though, they had a waterfall where people could swim under! I was glad to whoever decided to make it. It wasn’t a natural waterfall, so I don’t know what they did before the waterfall was made.
Later on, I learned that the founder Jung Myung Seok decided to make it for people who visited in the summer. Thank God!
It was so refreshing!

Later on, I heard that they were going to make another waterfall that’s bigger and fits more people! I can’t wait to see Wolmyeongdong after it is finished. I think it will be next to Wolmyeong Lake.
On that note, Wolmyeong Lake was also amazing as well! They cleaned the water so it was practically transparent. I was lucky to have gone to the retreats early though because after so many swam in the lake, the water kind of got murky.
I trust adults to know where to do their business, but children, not so sure. Still, it was fun. Wolmyeong Lake has a shallow and deep side so I can understand why so many children would want to swim in the lake. I kept to the deep side though (which was maybe about 2.5 meters?).
Anyway, I highly recommend coming to Wolmyeongdong at least once, and if it’s going to be your first time, I recommend you to come during one of the retreats!
