Tracing back to the past week, every corner of Daegu was spotted with splendid cherry blossoms. Then, the rain came for 3 days and it seemed like the season is already over until we found this at Palgongsan Cherry Blossom Road!
Since the mountain area has lower temperature, cherry blossoms have just reached their peak bloom last weekend and are supposed to last until this weekend. What makes a number of people to travel all the way to Palgongsan is their infamous cherry blossom tunnels.
It is one of the most popular drive courses during spring time. Drive along “Palgongsan-ro” starting from near Sutaegol Valley and past Pascucci and finally reach to the Fountain Plaza where fun events happen for Palgonsan Cherry Blossom Festival that starts from today until the weekend(April 11 – April 15). Don’t forget to drive along the cursive road downwards to be in the scenic view either!
