I am a nature lover and in love with mt.Jiri ever since I first visited the area. Have moved down and lived here for 8 years now and became a local expert holding a lot of information and partnerships with the locals. I used to run a guesthouse hosting and giving many foreign guests exotic local tours which they could never have experienced otherwise. Mt.Jiri and Hadong-gun is such a beautiful area possessing rich cultural heritages. Yet a lot of foreigners miss the opportunity of getting to know them because of the language barrier and lack of local transportation. So I decided to build the trips to provide YOU a fantastic experience you can ever have in the southern parts of Korea. I am fluent in English and easy going. (Probably the only one with English service in the region) Great moments await here. Please Come join me!

Where you'll be

- The first green tea plantation in Korea dating back to 1200 years ago. This is the starting point of the course. - Tea maker's houses on the farm: Among the hidden valley especially to foreigners, visit the local tea makers who have their own plantations and different skills for making teas. - UNESCO world's agricultural heritage : Hike up to the hills of green tea plantations and look at the amazing view of Mt.Jiri.

More tips

Tea tasting costs are included. You can buy teas from the maker directly on spot if you like.- These makers are highly recommended regarding taste and price. This tour is very exceptional. I try to avoid the commercial tea centers by the road where you can easily access without a guide
