Yongmunsan Wild Herbs and Vegetables Festival
Yongmunsan Wild Herbs and Vegetables Festival is one of the unique regional festivals of Yangpyeong in Gyeonggi-do Province.
It has its origins in the indigenous culture. Because of the surrounding villages and mountains and fresh running water, this region has been a special area since the ancient times for growing wild herbs of the finest quality. The wild herbs were even presented to the king.
Note, however, that wild herbs are not all there is to the festival. During the festival period, you can enjoy mountain village culture such as tasting food created from wild herbs, have a bandits’ den experience, and grab something to eat at the traditional food market.
