    Baek-Goji is where 9th division of Korean Army and the 38th force of Communist Chinese Army had the fiercest battle to occupy the highest ground.

    The 395 highland is now called Baengma-goji, a White Horse, because it now looks like a white horse is lying because the severe air bombardment made it a bare mountain.

    Stop At: Dopiansa Temple, 23, Dopidong-gil, Dongsong-eup, Cheorwon-gun, Gangwon-do 24010 South Korea

    Dopiansa Temple was founded by Doseon (a Korean Buddhist Monk) in 865, in the 5th year of the 48th King Gyeongmun of the Unified Silla Dynasty. Legend has says that he commissioned the cast iron statue of Vairocana Buddha with the intention of enshrining it in Anyangsa Temple, Cheorwon. But, the statue disappeared on its way, only to be found at an unknown site in Hwagaesan Mountain.
    Doseon decided to respect the Buddha’s choice, built Dopiansa Temple at the site, and enshrined the statue in it. The temple was named Dopiansa to indicate that the iron-made Buddha statue had reached “pian,” meaning an eternal place to rest. In addition to the legendary iron Vairocana Buddha statue (National Treasure No. 63) made by Monk Doseon, the temple houses a 4.1 meter-tall three-story granite pagoda (Treasure No. 223).

    After liberation, it was under communism and was completely destroyed during the Korean War in 1950, 25th June. In November 1957, it was then restored from the 15th Infantry Division and was managed by the military unit. It was transferred to the private sector in 1986 and has undergone the renovation of the Daejeokgwangjeon Hall, the Samseonggak, and the Panjonggak and the Sacheonwangmun Gate.

    Stop At: Sanjeonghosu-ro, Yeongbuk-myeon, Pocheon-si, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea

    Sanjeong Lake is a popular tourist destination in Pocheon. It is popular because not only the beautiful mountain lake, but also the small mountain peaks around Myeongseong, Mangbongsan, and Mangmubong, which form a spectacular view in the fall season, mingle with the lake to achieve a magnificent view. The Dulegil of Sanjeong Lake (path), which surrounds the lake, does not disappear from the perspective of the lake while walking, so you can feel the true side of Sanjeong Lake.
