The most beautiful cabbage patch made by hands.
Among the many scenic landscapes, that are made by hand, are more special than that made by nature. Cabbage fields are stretched out on the mountainside 1100m above sea level, forming a beautiful and wonderful landscape. And that’s ‘Anbandegi’.
'Anban', means thick and wide wooden boards used for hitting rice cakes, 'Degi', is the native language of 'Deok'. So Anbandegi is flat and spacious place just like the meaning of its name.
After the Korean War, the people had come into the deep mountains, planted fields, and built a place to survive. The high quality highland cabbage growing in the slope field of 2 million square meters accounts for about half of the total highland cabbage production in Korea.
Roads and farms, like cobwebs, make a special landscape between steep fields.
When you cultivate a field, you can climb up to the observation deck made by stacked stones and see a clear view.
Photographers from all over the country come to see the galaxy in the night sky, the sunrise on the cabbage field, the exotic atmosphere of the winter snow scene and the wind power generator. In the middle of the summer when the lowest temperature drops like 10 degrees in the morning, it is better for you to prepare cloths with long sleeves. And you can also use accommodations and cafe that village people manage.
"Coffee Copper Coffee Museum"
Coming down from Anbandegi toward Gangneung, there is a coffee museum. It exhibits various and rare coffee artifacts from all over the world and conveys unique coffee history and culture.
You can check out the history of coffee in Korea by looking around 'Coffee Copper Coffee Farm', the first commercial coffee produced in Korea. You can see all the processes from coffee tree cultivation to a cup of coffee and experience them.
