Daegwallyeong Sheep Farm (/Daegwallyeong Yangtte Farm) was Korea’s first sheep farm, located at 850m above sea level in the Alps of Pyeongchang. With the many ranches in Pyeongchang, Daegwallyeong Sheep Farm is the only ranch that raises sheep.
Over 300 sheep graze on the vast field of Daegwallyeong in nature from Spring in March to late Fall in October. The sheep go indoor during winter time.
The sheep grazing field is surrounded by a 1.2km walking trail that takes about 40mins to complete. Visitors can enjoy feeding hay to the sheep, reaching out to touch their fur and taking photos of the beautiful scenery. At the hill of the sheep farm, one can view the coastal city of Gangneung and the East Sea beyond.
A wooden shack in the middle of the field is the main focus spot for many visitors. It was a filming set for the movie, "A Man Who Went to Mars (2003)".
In winter, Daegwallyeong Sheep Farm transforms into a winter wonderland, often referred as the Alps of Korea. Snow covers the fields and forest in white beauty.
A day trip to Daegwallyeong Sheep Farm will be a meaningful one with beautiful memories of the beauty of different seasons.
Love what you see at Daegwallyeong Sheep Farm? Why not check out the next nearby ranch, Daegwallyeong Sky Ranch that is about 15 mins away by car (about 14,000 won by taxi)? There is a 5km tractor carriage course, horse riding/trekking, windmills and sky observatory. Of course, there are cows (over 400!), sheep and horses on the vast grassland of Daegwallyeong Sky Ranch. From there, you can return to the same bus terminal (i.e. Hoenggye Intercity Bus Terminal) for your onward destination or back to Seoul.
