Yeongju Punggi Insam Festival (영주 풍기인삼축제)
Start Date: October 3, 2013
End Date: October 9, 2013
|Pung-gi ginseng is only grown in the Sobaeksan Mountains and is widely known for its superior quality. The reason Pung-gi ginseng is so highly valued is because of its high contents of ‘saponin,’ which is effective in regulating blood pressure and reenergizing the body. It is even believed to help reduce the risk of cancer. The Pung-gi Ginseng Festival coincides with the peak of the harvesting season each year, which takes place around October.During the festival period, visitors can participate in various events such as harvesting ginseng and sampling cuisines made from the expensive Pung-gi ginseng. There are also many other tourist attractions located in the Yeongju region, including the Buseoksa Temple and Sobaeksan Pung-gi Hot Springs.|
