Herbnara is the perfect place for giving your body and mind relaxation because it is situated 

near by cool Heungjeong Valley.

In addition to the herb garden, there are restaurant and café to provide a healthy food made of herb 

and various facilities such as herbnara pension, herb museum, turkey gallery and cartoon gallery.

There is a wide parking lot, but inexperienced drivers should pay special attention 

to the car on the opposite side because the access way is narrow.

Also, it is not open at night, so it is good to come to visit herbnara with enough time.
