Introduction
Yangyang Songi Festival offers hands-on programs to enjoy Yangyang songi mushrooms that naturally grow on Taebaeksanmaek Mountain Ridge. These local specialties feature a strong mushroom scent and thick texture thanks to the low percentage of moisture compared to other region’s mushrooms, helping to preserve them for a long term. At the festival, visitors can experience the farming ambience through the mushroom picking program. The program also allows foreign visitors can learn about the excellence of Yangyang Songi.
