Junam Reservoir is in Changwon-si, Gyeonynam. The name actually refers to three reservoirs, Junam, Dongpan and Sannam, which are connected by water forming one wetland ecology.
When the cold wind blows each year, winter migrating birds including Baikal Teal, mandarin ducks, wild geese, and pintails stop over at Junam Reservoir. 10-20,000 birds are seen as a daily average. Hooded cranes and black-faced spoonbills can be seen here, and in winter, graceful white swans turn Junam Reservoir into a fairytale-like swan lake.
The 16.5 km bicycle path around Junam Reservoir and Sannam Reser-voir was designed to avoid environmental damage by using the exist-ing dike, orchard road, and vehicle lanes. It has no steep or difficult sections and takes only 2 hours to complete even at a relaxed pace. A good place to start the bicycle tour is the Ramsar Cultural Center, which has a free parking lot and provides information regarding the ecology, history, and function of Junam Reservoir.
