It is the first garden among 7 management areas in Chollipo Arboretum and opened on March 1, 2009.
Inheriting Min Pyong-gal’s love for nature, we maintain and manage the arboretum so that all with life here can live together in harmony.

Therefore, we minimize the pruning that deforms the appearance of plants, and reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides so that trees can grow as
naturally as possible. Trees don’t get cut off for the lack of beauty, and get cut little as possible when it is necessary to make a path. Here, the trees are happy
as people don’t act like masters of the nature, and in turn, trees create a happy environment for people.

The Founder Dr Min Pyong-gal, who was deeply touched by the beauty of Korean traditional architecture, has placed several tile-roofed houses throughout the
arboretum since the beginning. As the Miller Garden opened to the public in 2009, they are no longer just accommodations, but becoming places for education
where one can learn to appreciate the nature through educational programs, commentary programs, walk and observe, and meditation.

Garden stays at the Chollipo Arboretum are divided into an unshared 'Garden House' with tile roofed houses, thatched cottages, and western style houses that
respect privacy, and a reasonable and pleasant ‘Eco-Healing Center’ with a high quality youth hostel style.
