Damyang Metasequoia Road [담양 메타세콰이어길] — also known as Damyang Metasequoia Land [담양 메타세콰이어랜드] or Metasequoia Garosugil [담양 메타세쿼이어 가로수길] — is a popular and picturesque Metasequoia tree-lined road located in the village of Hakdong [Hakdong-ri/학동리] in Damyang’s Damyang Township [Damyang-eup/담양읍], about 4.5 hours south of Seoul by car.
The trees along the 8.5 km-long boulevard — which also includes a 2km-long walking path — “were planted along the street in the early 1970s by the Ministry of Internal Affairs after National Road 24 was rebuilt“, during the Park Chung-Hee administration. The road was picked as one of the “most beautiful roads” in 2002 by the Korea Forest Service, and its 408 Metasequoia trees designated as a National Forest Cultural Asset in 2015.
This road is in walking distance to the nearby Meta Provence Village [메타프로방스], a tourist site with architecture inspired by the French villages of Provence, and a historical film set. It is also a 4-min. drive to/from Damyang Gwanbangjerim Forest [담양 관방제림] and Damyang Reina Country Club [담양레이나CC].
