Myeongwol Pangnamu(Nettle Tree)
Instead of a busy schedule visiting several tourist attractions in a day, I much enjoy slowing down a bit and visit local towns. Taking a walk in a small village and see how people live can be more interesting. Myeongwol is a peaceful town where visitors would definitely enjoy walking around and enjoy the atmosphere. I visited in a grey winter day. I was the only person walking around except the locals there. Some newly built cozy houses with the old beautiful nettle trees along the small valley made unique view of the town.
1.5Km north from the town is Myeongwol fortress. On the top of the wall, beautiful scenery and the wind will welcome you.

Sanghyowon celebrates Lupin festival in May and Hydrangea festival in Jun. This beautiful park holds fewer package tourists so you can enjoy beautiful scenery and space. There are so many photo spots. Take time and take nice photos of your own with flowers.
Camellia Hill has many couple tourists. If you are travelling alone, you will be a little annoyed by many couples posing for good shots in front of flowers forever. Don’t worry there are so many photo spots. There will always be a nice spot for you. Camellia flowers are the main attraction in Camelia hill but hydrangea are awesome in Jun.
