The entire area of Jeju Island was designated as a UNESCO Global Geopark in 2010 for its unique volcanic topography and the beautiful landscape of the island. The geo-trails of Jeju are walking trails that were created using the Global Geoparks brand and based on the unique topographical resources, history, culture, and stories of each village. Starting from the development of Sanbangsan Mountain and Yongmeori Coast Geo-trail in April 2014, currently, a total of four geo-trails have been developed including Gimnyeong & Woljeong Geo-trail in Manjanggul Cave area, Seongsan & Ojo Geo-trail in Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak area, and Suwolbong Peak Geo-trail that connects Suwolbong Peak, Dangsanbong, and the Chagwido area. You can also find more information on what to do and see while here by consulting VisitJeju.net.
Theme 2: Jeju Trails (Geo-trails, Olle-gil Trails, Forest Paths)
Suwolbong Peak Geo-trail
Suwolbong Peak in Gosan-ri, Jeju Island is a 77m tall small oreum (hill). However, you are unable to look down on it just because it is small. The peak is composed of various volcanic sediments along the coastal cliffs as it is called, a textbook of volcanology. Starting from the Chagwido ticket office, the trail is divided into course A, B, and C. Course A passes through the summit of Suwolbong Peak and arrives at Haenyeo’s House. Course B passes through Dangsanbong Peak and returns to the Chagwido ticket office and Course C travels across the sea by boat away from Chagwido. Each course is short enough for you to enjoy all three courses in one day
