In Dongducheon's Soyo-dong lies the small but uniquely beautiful Mt. Soyosan. The azaleas blossoms in spring are breathtaking. Then in autumn, the beauty of the spring flowers is matched by that of the crimson foliage, which is why it is often referred to as the Sogeumgang or 'Little Mt. Geumgangsan' , of Gyeonggi. This is also a Buddhist site that is famous as the place where Saint Wonhyo reached enlightenment. What is more, the numerous amusement and convenience facilities such as snow-sledding hills, swimming pool, outdoor concert hall, and parking lot have made this site a great one-day travel course for urbanites. On the way up to the mountain's peak are the Cheongryang Waterfall and the 10m tall Wonhyo Waterfall whose cascading waters will refresh its viewers. The Jajaeam Temple within the mountains is alegacy in itself as the temple built by Saint Wonhyo in the 14th year (645) of Queen Seondeok's rule during the Silla Era. Fresh spring water flows from inside the Iljumun Gate and past the rear side of the parking lot.
