Situated 63km from Seoul
In the middle of the Han River
Nami Island looks like a leaf floating gracefully
on top of Cheongpyeong Lake.
The island has an area of 460 000m square
and a circumference of 5 km.
Formed with pebbles and sand,
there are no mountains in the island,
but there are trees tall enough to touch the sky.
Wide grassy gardens where deer,
ostriches, rabbits, squirrels, ducks
and countless types of birds flourish.
Nami Island is a place where not only nature
but also human beings can coexist.
Nami Island was named after General Nami,
a notable figure in Korean history
who courageously fought in battles
but died at the age of 26.
Seasonal rain used to transform this land into an island,
and with the construction of Cheongpyeong dam,
it is now an island all year long.
thousands of trees were planted
by Mr. Byeong-Do Minn.
share peace, love and harmony far away
from crowds and civilization.
