Introduction : Built in October 1973, Soyang Dam is Asia's largest and the world's fourth largest rock-fill dam. It stands 123 meters high and 530 meters long, and can generate 200,000kW/h of electricity. It serves multiple purposes including flood control, hydroelectric power generation, irrigation, and fishing. It holds 29 million tons of water, which has become Soyangho Lake, Korea's largest man-made lake. Spanning a large area that borders the Gangwon-do cities and districts of Chuncheon, Hongcheon, Yanggu and Inje, the lake is often referred to as an "inland sea". Passenger ferries bound for Yanggu and Inje run along the 60 kilometer-long water route that leads to Seoraksan Mountain.
