Village of Hoeryongpo (Serpentine Dragon) in Yechoen
Rice fields are turning yellow as the rice ripens in the village that looks like an island in the middle of the river at Hoeryongpo (ף) in Yonggungmyeon () in Yeocheongun, North Gyeongsang Province, South Korea in mid-October in 2017.

The fantastic photo was taken from top of the Mt. Biryong (ޫףߣ) or Mountain of Flying Dragon overlooking the picturesque farming village by which a small river or stream called Naeseongcheon twists and turns along its serpentine paths.

The stream runs through a number of small villages before it reaches Nakdong River (զ˰), which runs into the seas via the port city of Busan. Nakdong River is the longest river in South Korea.

Legends say that the village of Hoeryongpo (ף) was the earthly paradise as it literally means the Port of Serpentine Dragon.

Nearby area is still called Yonggungmyeon (), the Area of Dragon Palace, meaning Shangri La of Undersea Palace. The place is full of beautiful ponds dubbed ponds of dragon head or flying dragons.

Nearly unapproachable Hoeryongpo was used as a safe shelter for the refugees fleeing from the invading Communists during the Korean War (1950-53). It was also used as a place for political prisoners during the ancient Jeoseon Dynasty.
