By the entrance of the Otgol Village, the Neutinamu aged 350years old are growing in groups of dozens. It is said that the trees were planted to prevent the bad energy to enter the village!



As we passthe Bibosup (remedial forest) you can see there a lot of beautiful flowers planted all over the road.

You will find “Jeongnyeogak’ (shrine) if you walk a bit more from the entrance of Otgol Village.
Jeonyeogak is a Hyojabigak (stele of a son of filial piety) of teacher Choi, Heungwon of Baek Bulam who was Ikchan, the crown prince of King Jeongjo in Joseon Dynasty.
If you continue to climb up, you will find a forked road. Shall we first enter the Head House?


A place you must visit in Otgol Village is the Head House of Gyeongju Choi clan.
As a house surround by secluded mountains, it is located at the inner most of the village!
As the oldest infrastructure among houses of Daegu, it is evaluated as a valuable data in conducting a research on the noble house and their life styles of Joseon Dynasty.


Aside from this, you can find scenes that show flavors of Korea with beautiful flowers. .
Shall we not leave these fabulous old houses and go to the tradition experience center?


Here is Donegyejeong where you can experience traditions.
Donggyejeongstands on the east side of the brook. This place is used as a place where descendants pursuit their studies and its surrounding scenery is most miraculous in the village.


For the tradition experiencing, you can experience shrine, Korean traditional clothes, greeting manner, traditional plays, ceremonies and ecological experience.
This time, we had experienced Korean traditional clothes, greeting manner and the ceremony.

(For reservation : 053-424-2237, 011-708-4408) 



I sat on the floor and knocked the Dadeumidol (cloth to be filled stone), leaving the traditional clothes experience with scenery of Donggyejeong behind.
One behind me was the person who experienced with me and we enjoyed the sound of Dadeumidol and the sound of nature wearing traditional clothes for young bachelors.


Learn about the greeting manner before we start the Teaism Experience as we sit wearing Korean traditional clothes. After learning simple manners, the instructor teaches us personally how to boil teas. Once the tea is boiling, we pour them onto a filter. With the filter, a clean tea with clear color is infused.


You should put the fingers evenly together while pouring the tea in a pot. We enjoyed the tea with hearty appetite of lotus root.


Just in time when we were having a conversation while having tea, the rain poured and we were able to feel more the nature incense.
The teaism in Otgol Villate was a good opportunity to feel the old fragrance.
How about leaving a downtown and feel the old fragrance?
