Would you like to hear the story of Pyeongchang Herbnara, which began almost thirty years ago?
“Let’s go down to the country and farmland when our combined age becomes 100.“ The romantic promise of youth has been realized like a dream come true here. Believing that there would be no place like PyeongChang to keep their promise, the couple moved to Heungjeong Valley in PyeongChang and started a new life. That was the beginning of PyeongChang Herbnara.
Pyeongchang Herbnara has become the representative tourist attraction of Pyeongchang, Gangwon-do. It is a splendid environmentally-friendly healing garden, which the couple created by cultivating nature’s gifts with their own hands. They have transformed an empty plot of land into an aromatic field through their steady efforts over more than twenty-six years.
