[Webzine 2] Olle Trail 2, Gwangchigi – Onpyeong

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
