Inspired by mr Kim Gouansu book ‘The Wetlands’ from 1984-2008.
Junam Reservoir in Dong-eup, Changwon-si links three reservoirs (Sannam, Junam, Dongpan) through waterways streaming down from the mountains of Guryongsan and Bbaegwolsan and the river of Nakdonggang.
Junam Reservoir is the largest migratory bird sanctuary in Korea and serves as the home for over 20 types of birds, including the mallard drake, spectacled teal, bean goose, white-fronted goose, and more. Every November, these birds fly into the reservoir to spend a winter where there is warmth and abundance of food, joining the living national treasures of the swan, white-naped crane, and the Eurasian spoonbill. The sheer size and makeup of the reservoir provides ideal living conditions for the birds as well as numerous photo opportunities.
The water level is kept constant throughout the year and the water surface does not freeze over in winter. There is also an abundance of great duckweed and hornwort that provides a natural, relaxing setting. Junam Reservoir is a well-known destination in Changwon and gives you the chance to experience the exciting wildlife and breathtaking nature of Korea.
