Located in Jungrang Ward at about one hour drive from Seoul city centre, Youngma Waterfall Park is a beautiful, well equipped recreational area, which has become a popular destination for families and sports enthusiasts. It offers plenty of relax and playground areas besides many sport facilities, such as swimming pools, a badminton court, four tennis courts, and a football field. Moreover, it is the starting point for many hiking trails, being located at the base of Yongmasan, one of the many beloved hiking destinations within the Seoul district limits.
Nevertheless, the main attraction of the park is a giant artificial waterfall, which has been constructed right at the base of the mountain. The lush green backdrop and three sets of falls cascading into a large aquamarine pool create a Hawaiian-like scenery right in Seoul’s suburban area. Renowned ad the tallest artificial waterfall in Asia, Yongma Waterfall is made up three different cascades. The 51.4m high main waterfall is flanked on the left by the Blue Dragon Waterfall with a height of 21.4 meters and on the right by the White Horse Waterfall (21.2 meters). All the cascades land in a big clear blue pond, which is often happily assaulted by children, and not only, during the hot and wet Korean summers.
