Otgol Village                                   Dodong Thuja Forest

A place that quietly brings peace as you walk slowly along the road with stone walls stretched on both sides and a place that washes out the hustle and bustle of the city with shoulder-leveled roofs of old houses and flowers by the stone walls, is Otgol Village.
Being in this place makes you feel like you are in the countryside but in fact it is only 10 minutes away from the city. 
Build your memories in Gyeongju Choi’s village, a place that keeps its tradition intact.

Dodong Thuja Forest was registered as the first natural monument in 1962. Here, you will find a colony of rare indigenous thuja that was grown without cultivation. This place used to be a rest area for passers-by since it is on the way from Daegu to Yeongcheon and Gyeongju. The view of this place is really nice to the point that Seo Geo Jeong, a great scholar in Early Joseon Dynasty, made it 6th among the 10 most wonderful landscapes in Daegu.

The scent of the apple’s flowers fills the entire village during spring and in autumn, the sight of red apples makes an appetizing view. There are farms in Pyeonggwang-dong where you can experience apple picking during autumn.

Woo Hyo Jong, a devoted son who saved his sick father by cutting three of his fingers and transfusing blood lived in this village.
