I took a few wrong turns, until I realised all of the empty car parks nearby were for the huge numbers of tourists who come in peak season. We ended up parking right by the entrance, as it was delightfully quiet and had lunch in the modest eatery by the ticket booth. The tea plantation is not exactly on par with what you see in Sri Lanka, but it is pleasant enough for a climb. The problem is that the circuit loop climb was closed off at the top and we had to retrace our steps. The reason for this seemed to be because two men with drainage pipes were smoking cigarettes and delaying the completion of some trackside works. A lot of guide books talk up the tea plantation as though it is a tier one attraction in South Korea. It is not, but if you are lucky enough to avoid the masses, then you will enjoy.

Beautiful vast picturesque green tea plantation. Looking closer, noticed the leaves were not that green & healthy - probably due to its almost winter now. The long, small & steep sandy steps up to the top was a bit dangerous as it is easy to slip & fall off if not careful. There were no side handles to hold. Winds were very strong when we were there, so this made it very easy to lose balance . Coming down is even more scary when you look from the top. Good thing we realised you can come down by a safer route ( can go up by here as well ). Try the green tea ice cream, very nice.

Very excited at going to the Boseong Tea Fields. The tea fields are breathtaking! Had a fun time walking into the tea fields. Only bad thing is that the restaurant was closed and guarded by 2 dogs, even though there was a sign on its door saying "Open 365 days a year). Had green tea tteokbboki and green tea ice-cream as lunch. Ice cream is nice enoug, but green-tea tteokbboki is so-so. Can see the tteokbboki is green amist the reddish-orange hot sauce. There were 2 shops telling tea and souveniers. Happy shopping!
How to Go: From Gwangju U-Square Terminal, get a bus ticket to Boseong. Bus took 1h20min, 4100won. At Boseong Terminal, wait for a local bus. Ask if it goes to Nok Cha Won, or Dae Han Dae Won. Fare is 900won. (I read many reviews saying the local bus terminal is across the street from the Intercity Bus Terminal. I went around searching for it and in the end went back to the Intercity Bus Terminal after asking a local.)
When going back, there are Bus timings on the sounvenier shop door. Walk out of the Nok Cha Won, you will see a big car park on your left. Walk across this car park, you will see a tunnel. Walk inside the tunnel to cross to the oher side of the road. The Bus stop going to Gwangju/ Boseong Terminal is just outside the tunnel. There are Intercity buses to Gwangju and local bus to Boseong Terminal.

We hired a round trip tour guide for a one way trip so that we could visit the tea plantation and it was beyond imagination. Upon arrival it the humidity was so so stifling, rain was coming soon and none of us had an umbrella.

Walking out to see the rows upon rows of tea fields going up the mountain was breathtaking and not just because we were dieing from humidity. By the time we made it to the the stairs up it had gone from sprinkling to drizzle, it was time to decide to get drenched or go home. I am so happy we stayed.

What I consider to be the half way mark, which is more like the 1/3 mark but it was the only other proper outlook with benches on the way up. The view from that area was truely Korean drama worthy. Light fog on the fields above us, light drizzle on the fields below us and the slight stirring of a cool breeze calling us to go higher.

The trek to the highest view point was hard, dirt and large rocks, a steep zig zag way to the top. And then there's a fork in the road, up or into the forest. With no english available, google translate told us the forest route took us to the sea view. Maybe we were stubborn, we made it to the top, to a cool breeze and lone tree and a view blocked by fog. Maybe that's what the sign below said.

The zig zag on the way down saw amazing views of the rolling fields though, maybe next time we'll see the sea view.

The cafe sells many tea drinks not to mention green tea ice cream. It was delicious and more like soft serve than the traditional ice cream most of us think of. All the usual tea associated things for sale in the shop. A cute little dog sleeping out the front.

All in all a wet, humid but totally beautiful landscape that we're thankful to have visited.

This was the one place I regretted not visiting during the first time I lived in Korea. When I moved back last year, I was excited to be able to visit. For starters, if you're driving and have an English GPS, you will not be able to located the green tea plantation because the address on the Korean government tourism sites is not correct. You will need to call 1330 (the English tourist helpline to get the correct, updated address). The correct address takes you to the museum across the street and there are no signs visible from the road so be aware.
When we finally arrived after being lost for two hours, the parking attendant was incredibly rude. In my almost 9 years in Korea, I don't think I've ever had such a bad experience as I did here. When I finally managed to park away from this man, he approached us and told us we could not bring my dog in (who was in a backpack carrier on my back). This would not have been an issue if I hadn't seen Koreans go in with their dog. The weather was too warm to leave my dog in the car so I encouraged my friend to go in without me since we'd spent so much time trying to find it, however, the parking attendant kept following her and just laughing hysterically.
I am incredibly disappointed to have had such a poor experience at a place so highly frequented by non-Koreans. This was not the experience I was expecting.

From gwangju bus terminal to boseong local bus terminal is about 1hour to 1 hour 10min.From there by local bus towards yulpo beach is another 15 to 20 min ride.,bus got no number and the bus will stop at the middle of no where,we got to inform the bus driver our destination.from there another 10 min walk to the ticketing office.
boseong tea fields is beautiful and it give people a calm feeling,air was fresh and there are benches along the plantation where you can sit down and relax.you can also climb to the top to view the whole plantation,there are at least 2 ways to climb to the top by stairs or by using the path ,it was strenous and a pair of 'good shoes' is needed.it will take about 20 min ,for city girl may be 30 min,the view from the top is worth the effort ,
There are 1 restaurant and cafe that we can purchase our green tea ice cream and food.we purchased our ice cream and green tea products from the shop outside the plantation nearer to the carpark,it is cheaper and the sales assistant is friendly,however little english or no english is spoken cos boseong is just a small little town very remote,i don't see many young people mostly the elderly villagers.
The return trip ,we got to cross under an express way to the opposite side of road ,bus timetable is between 45min to 1 hour.you can obtain the bus schedule from the restaurant or the ticketing office.
overall is a good trip where we can relax and see some nature green fields.

This was our first ever visit to a tea plantation and it was a very memorable experience.

We took the local bus from Boseong to the tea plantations and although the actual entrance is quite far from the road we found it easily enough. The bus staff have limited English but we had Google maps set in Korean and just pointed to where we wanted to go. Easy!

After being dropped off, we started off by heading up the road to the right of the car park and found a visitor centre at the top which has a good museum and lots of information about tea production. However, please note that this is not where the spectacular, walkable tea fields are. To see those you will need to walk up the road to the left of the car park, with the entrance being a couple of hundred metres walk. You can leave your large bags at the entrance quite safely and collect them on leaving.

The tiered tea plantation hills are beautiful, as is the surrounding forest area. We visited in October and although there was no picking happening or working to observe, the hills were still a lovely shade of green. The walk to the top of the hill is worth it for the view and if you continue on it you'll get a lovely nature woodland walk back to the start area. There is a cafe and you should definitely try their tasty green tea ice cream.

The entrance fee is certainly worth the money if you've never been to a tea plantation before, however if you've been to any of the estates in Darjeeling or central Sri Lanka you might find this is a bit underwhelming since there isn't a factory to tour.

My husband and myself spend about 3 hours here.
We had a lovely time walking on the paths and you can also walk between the green tea bushes. It’s an amazing experience, when you love tea...also if you don’t. The nature is breathtaking, the tea is in perfect rows.
We where her beginning of November and that’s perfect, sunshine but not hot, clear blue sky and the autumn colours.
After walking we had green tea 1000won and a lovely green tea icecream.

Walk the trail to the top of the mountain, through the green tea rows and you will get a glimpse of the ocean. The bamboo forest is neat as well but this is a great experience when in Southwestern Korea.

We went recently to Gwangju south in Korea and spend also some time t Boseong Green Tea Field Daehan Dawon. It is easy to find if your navigation is well prepared. Access through main road and parking place are available. Went there early morning on a Sunday and luckily not many people around. We had a walk through the tea field and made a lot of selfies LOL. The scenery view was/is very nice. Afterwards we went into the small tea shop and had some tea (black and green). We were sitting at the balcony and it was a very nice and quiet moment. We really enjoyed it and it is definitely worth to make a stop.
