The Piagol Autumn Foliage Festival 2013 will take place in the Piagol Valley area in Gurye-gun, Jeollanam-do on November 2 and 3.
Piagol Valley, located in Jirisan National Park (Gurye), is famous for its stunning autumn foliage. Every year in late October or early November, the valley holds an autumn foliage festival when the colorful leaves reach their peak. The festival will kick off with a traditional memorial ceremony to wish for the town’s peace and happiness. The festival will also have a photo exhibit, concerts, and various cultural events. Furthermore, visitors to Yeongoksa Temple will be admitted free of charge.
Piagol Valley will be an excellent autumn destination for the weekend, especially at this time of the year when the leaves are at their grandest.
