This picture was taken at Dodamsanbong in Chungcheongbuk Province, in South Korea. It was taken on Dodamsanbong Peak, on top of the stone gate. The stone gate is a huge natural rock that has a whole in the middle. You can walk on top of the stone gate because it’s formed as a bridge. All of this is natural. Dondamsanbong is designated as one of the eight most beautiful sceneries in South Korea.

The area was visited by numerous scholars during the Joseon Period (1392-1910). From the stone gate you can see Three Rocks that create a large S figure in the middle of Namhangang River. This is the only place in the world where you can see three long rocks protrude in the middle of a river. There is a legend about the three rocks being human once but then turned into stoned by the gods.
