  • Travel Time : 5 hours
  • Distance : 8.8㎞
Piagol Valley is located in Naedong-ri, Toji-myeon, Gurye-gun. From the valley, the stream flows to the southeast of Nogosan Peak, the gateway to Jirisan Mountain, and runs into the Seomjingang River.
A film called “Piagol” was produced here immediately after the Korean War. The fratricidal struggle was fought with particular bitterness in this area. People think that the valley was named after the film, but the name “Piagol” had actually been around for a long time before the film was produced.
Piagol Valley brims with broadleaf primeval forests, is one of the ten most amazing views of Jirisan Mountain, and is blessed with gorgeous autumnal scenery. Species of plants differ by ridgeline. The mountain is ablaze with autumnal foliage, which is reflected in the valley’s waters, turning them red, while the waters in turn redden the faces reflected in them. This is called Samhongso or the Three Red Ponds.
