Yeonggeumjeong Sunrise Pavilion

Located at the entrance of Dongmyeong Harbor, Yeonggeum Pavilion is often visited by citizens of Sokcho as it has great view and close from the city. Actually, you cannot find pavilion at Yeonggeum Pavilion since it is a stone mountain. It received its name from the mysterious and beautiful sound that is made as waves hit the rock, which it is similar to Korean lute, Geomungo. Since the stone mountain was broken due to construction of Sokcho Harbor during Japanese imperialism, now there is wide bedrock and we cannot hear the music as old times. However, yo can enjoy surrounding sceneries and wave sounds at the Sunrise Pavilion that is placed near the beach. Especially, sunrise that you can see from this pavilion floats directly from the sea so you will feel like facing the sun.
