An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post
From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.
Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net, and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.
If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!
Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to put on your hiking shoes and climb up an oreum. The cool spring weather makes hiking the perfect activity, where the sun is not too hot, and the wind is not too cold. Let’s take a peak at Darangshi Oreum!
Darangshi Oreum is one of Jeju’s 368 oreums. It is located near Mazeland, Bijarim, and Yongnuni Oreum.
Address: Jeju-si, Gujwa-Eup, Sehwa-ri San 6 (제주특별자치도 제주시 구좌읍 세화리 산 6)
Directions by bus: Go to Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal and take bus 710 for about 56 minutes. Get off at Gasinamdong bus stop, and walk for 25 minutes until you reach the entrance of Darangshi Oreum (also called Wollangbong/Wollang Peak).
Darangshi Oreum rises about 382 meters above ground level, so the walk can feel a little steep. But don’t worry, there are stairs and rails along the way.
As you walk up the oreum, take a moment to breathe in the natural scent of pine trees and the fresh mountain air.
From the peak of 382.4m looking down, you can see surrounding parasitic cones, and even Seongsang Sunrise Peak.
Another special feature of Darangshi Oreum is the crater at the top of the oreum. Darangshi Oreum is a beautiful place to watch the sunrise or even paraglide!
If you haven’t been to Darangshi Oreum before, make it a part of your next trip to Jeju. Fresh air and blue skies are waiting for you.
