Farming Village Experience


Gyechon Village is located in an area 700 meters above the sea level where human biorhythms are optimized, so it is better known as happy700. It is typical of a rural village full of beautiful natural sceneries, generosity and unlimited growth potential. Visitors can have a pleasure of watching a variety of wild flowers in the spring and enjoying green forests and cool valleys in the summer. They can relish colorful autumn leaves in each and every peak and enjoy snow and skiing in the winter. Since it is equipped with a wonderful natural environment featuring fresh air and clear water generated from 700 High Ground, villagers are concentrated on making the most of the natural environment at a time of conducting economic activities and endeavoring to preserve crystal cleanness. Gyechon Village boasts of an amazing natural environment where it changes every season. The entire Gyechon Village is surrounded by clean valleys and mountains. Baekdeoksan Mountain, the most popular tourist attraction in Gyechon, is visited by 10,000 mountain-climbers every year. Visitors can have fun inhaling wild edible greens in the spring, enjoying fall foliage in the autumn and hiking in the winter.
