The Oreum, also called Mundojiac or Mundoak, boasts a height of 250 meters above sea level, and when you reach the top, you can see as far as Mt. Halla.
You can also see Suwolbong Peak to the west and Sanbangsan Mountain to the south. At the foot of the Oreum the rest of the land, except for the cedar forest and arable land, is covered with Silver grass.
Nearby is the Gotjawal area, which plays a big role in storing groundwater in the middle mountainous areas of Jeju Island.
Mundoji oreum, part of the Jeju Olle 14-1 course that walks inland to the southwest of Jeju Island, has a flat meadow and ranch, allowing visitors to observe Jeju’s famous horse.
If you go forward from the summit, you can head to the Osullock Tea Museum, while if you go in the reverse direction, you can head to the Jersey Village.
The 260-meter-tall Mundoji Oreum is known as Mundoji because it looks like a dead pig, which is called Mundot Oreum and Mundoak.
In the vicinity of Gotjawal, including mundoji Oreum, traces of pine trees, the boundary of the Joseon Dynasty’s national ranch, are still visible.
The trail good for one person to walk on is a pine tree forest on either side. However, it felt like a pine tree grave because it was cut a lot because of the nematode disease.
At first, if you go up a fairly steep slope for about five minutes, you will see a gentle slope of grassland.
From here, you must avoid the horses that are grazing peacefully and horse shit lying everywhere.
Upon reaching the summit, the ridge, which looks like a crescent moon, curves long north and south, forming a horseshoe-shaped crater that stretches wide eastward.
When you look around, the western part of Jeju Island unfolds coolly. Just below the top of the Oreum, Geotjawal stretches out like a jungle, and you can see Suwolbong Peak in the far west and Sanbangsan Mountain in the south.
