South Korea: Daegu: Hill Crest

Hill Crest (힐크레스트)
1003, Gachang-ro, Gachang-myeon, Dalseong-gun, Daegu

Hillcrestkoreais an eco-theme pack packed with special events and programs that change with the seasons to give visitors a fresh new experience each spring, summer, fall, and winter. This 3,000-pyeong, large-scale herb garden and mini theme park includes a large area of Metasequoias and the only green tea field in the Yongnam Area. [Reference]



I was monitoring gps location on maps.google on when I should get off.  However, I missed the preferred stop and get off on the next stop.  Good thing I choose the correct path on walking back.  You'll see the woody buildings (above) from the main road.

[Admission (Garden + Zoo Zoo Land + Red Maple Road)] Weekdays: Adults 8,000 won





The area is dull since I was there too early, still few visitors then.  But I was trying to catch the sun during my visit, since it has been forecast that there will be heavy rains in the afternoon.





Good to catch maple leaves changing colors which is too early for autumn on the month of July.





Guessing that these are for segregation of trash.











A place to be one with nature - multitude trees of red wood, maple, apricot, and metasequoia.





There is also a section where they promote traditional games and activities.









Lastly, I have visited the area where Jon In Sung's It's Okay, That's Love was filmed.

































How to get there?
Take Bus #2 or #405 from Banwoldang Station

  5. That looks beautiful and so restful and calming! Is it always so wonderfully quiet? I'm not sure if would be quite so perfect if it was too full of people!

    1. Since it's on a provincial area (not as busy as central Seoul), with less tourists getting around, thus it's a little bit peaceful. Most of the visitors are locals actually dipping their feet on the stream - cool option to be one with nature.

  6. This park would definitely be perfect for filming or even just spending time there. It looks peaceful and quiet but the activities make it even lively. Catching maple leaves would be something I'd enjoy doing for sure.
