Manhwabangcho is known for its colorful hydrangea flowers and various gardens. It’s up in the mountains with a cool tree growing next to green tea.
We came to Manhwabangcho with Noah in early July 2020.
The first thing you see when entering is a grassy area with gardens along the sides. The photo below was taken in September of 2021, and although the hydrangeas were out of bloom by then, it’s still not a bad place at all to be outside (and admission was free).
We meandered through the trails and gardens.
The gardens were set up nicely.
The pair of photos below was in September of 2021.
We went uphill past an interesting house.
We followed some paths around the mountains, but we really didn’t explore all that much. I would love to go back during the blooming season.
We found a cool tree growing on the mountainside. It had just started to rain, so we had Noah covered.
The tree was growing next to a patch of green tea bushes with a view of the town below.
The view in September was a clearer, dryer day.
I think the smell I was smelling was the green tea bushes..
More benches could be found within the rows of green tea bushes.
A little café is down near the entrance/exit of Manhwabangcho. It was not open in the photo below.
I don’t have many great photos from the hydrangea blooming season here, so that’s about all I have for this place right now. Grace Garden is another great place to check out hydrangeas, and there are many arrangements and paths up the mountainside.
