Exploring Korea’s biggest bamboo forest: Jungnokwon

:

Wind blows through the leaves above. Bamboo shoots sway back and forth like giant sea anemone in an ocean of air. I could swear I saw a ninja flying above too. The Jungnokwon Bamboo Garden is a 2.2 square km forest located in Damyang, about 45 minutes drive from Gwangju. There is more bamboo there than anywhere else in Korea. So much so in fact, that there is a yearly festival dedicated to all things bamboo (this year it will run from May 3rd-8th). Damyang is in the province of Jeollanam-do and is really easy to get to by public transportation.
