The 9th Scenic View – Donguibogam Village


Sancheong is the hometown of Donguibogam based in Jirisan Mountain. A lot of excellent doctors have come from Sancheong, including Heo Jun among others. As it is widely known for its naturally growing medicinal herbs in Jirisan Mountain, it is the birthplace of traditional medicine. The spirit of Wangsan Mountain and Pilbongsan Mountain have been put together in order to create the health experience tourism site with the theme of oriental medicine. Some quick and brief experiences to understand oriental medicine are available in the Oriental Medicine Museum and the Oriental Medicine Theme Park in the Traditional Oriental Medicine Tourist Site. Five-sense experiences are available in Donguibonga, which is home to the Medicinal Complex and the Medicinal Herb Walkway among others. Rest areas are prepared in the Hanbang Natural Recreation Forest in Donguibogam Village such as Houses in the Forest and Forest Recreation Center among others. Sancheong Medical Herb Festival is held every year. As the 2013 World Traditional Medicine Fair & Festival was held in Sancheong-gun, Donguibogam Village has become globalized.
