Come to the Daegwallyeong sheep farm in the fall, you will be able to see the majestic Red Leaf Hill, the day we arrived is a very beautiful October day, a perfect day with grass and blue sky.
When you go to the sheep farm from March to May, you can see the sheep which the ooze is cut, but I like watching them fatty like this.
It was only surprised when I saw the sheep in Deagwwallyeong that I had never seen a real sheep.
The rest stop is also very romantic for visitors, you can bring food for lunch or picnic when you come here.
There is a separate area for feeding the sheep, and after giving the ticket, a small basket of food will be exchanged, so you can feed the sheep and play with them before coming back home.
After visiting the farm, we went outside, there was much food for visitors, including grilled lamb (4.7 dollars/skewers). But how can you eat after stroking and playing with them, so just ignore it? Gangwon Province also has another specialty is steamed corn (boiled corn), you should try it.
