Enjoy Summer Daisy fields at Cheongoksan Yukbaekmajigi in Pyeongchang: Korea’s first highland vegetable garden. It is 400 meters above sea level higher than Daegwallyeong highland vegetable garden, therefore it is a clean location with a fresh wind even in summer and no bugs.
The gravel road up to the peak is very twisting, so drive carefully. Even in the summer, the nights are frigid. Bring extra warm clothing if you’re going vehicle camping!
Cheongoksan Mountain (1,256 m) is a mountain that crosses Mitan-myeon, Pyeongchang-gun, and Jeongseon-eup, Jeongseon-gun, and it is named for a large amount of wild green known as “Cheongok” that grows spontaneously with the mountain.
