If you are in Daejeon or Nonsan how about trying a new place to take pictures during Spring? In Nonsan there is a university called Geumgang University that is a great spring photoshoot location!
The University is located in the countryside of Nonsan, nearby Daejeon. Although is quite far it’s definitely a place worth the travel to take some pictures!! Not only during spring, but the autumn leaves are also quite stunning at this location.
Aside from the campus itself, there is a temple and a pond near the university that resemble drama scenes and is full of natural beauty. The remote university campus is the ideal photoshoot location.
The Photoshoot Spots:
Walkway to The Dormitories
The first place is the most beautiful one if you come during Cherry Blossoms season! In this place, the students sometimes hold an event where you can take a polaroid picture with the trees!!
The path is full of cherry blossoms and when the wind blows the flowers fall down like snow! It is indeed wonderful and it is possible to take a lot of pictures in this place!!
Behind Geumgang University dormitories
Behind the dormitories, there are a lot of trees blooming with all kinds of spring flowers! Not only can you see more Cherry blossoms but there are also many other types of trees including Magnolias! One more good thing about this part of the university is that the leaves get really close to the ground and so you get the chance to take pictures holding some of the flowers without killing them!
The Tiny Pond
On the way to the main building, we have a cute pond with fish and of course more beautiful trees including a willow tree. It’s another tiny spot worth your time! Not only is it very colorful but also truly peaceful and good for those who want to spend some time chilling for a while reading a book. You can even have a pondside nap!
A little bit farther from the dormitories, you can find a beautiful lake also with huge cherry blossom trees! If you stay until sunset I guarantee you may have a view that is worthy of being described in a novel.
How to Get there
Coming from Daejeon it will be necessary to take the train at Seodaejeon station to Nonsan. From there you can get the bus 509 or 505 at the Bus terminal nearby (about 4 minutes walk). Get down at the bus stop ‘Geumgangde bus stop’ and walk 10 minutes to the university.
