If you are excited at Silver Grass Exhibition, we recommend you to visit Mindongsan Mountain silver grass field. Mindungsan Mountain located between Nam-myeon Byeoreogok and Jeungsan Mountain is 1118.8 m high. Like its name, its peak is a flat field so there are tremendous silver grasses instead of trees. It is one of five silver grass habitats in Korea. In the middle of October, the field of tens of thousands pyeong is covered with silver grass. In winter as well as in fall, the silver grass covered with white snow boast their beauty. Mindungsan Silver Grass Festival has been held in the middle of October every year since 1996. This mountain is not steep so it is good for family hiking. It takes one and half hour to walk from Jeungsan to Mindungsan Mountain Peak.
