It is also called 'Hochon Bongsu' after its topography resembling a fox. The smoke signal tower disappeared in the 1960s as a tangerine orchard came into place.
The name of the port in Wimi-3ri derived the fact that it used to be a port to tie Tewoo rafts. Jongjeong is the old name for Wimi-3ri. All ships anchor at Wimi-hang (harbor) nowadays. Clear and cold groundwater flows between tidewater, drawing a lot of people hiding away the heat in summer. Few restaurants open seasonally.
It is a walkway near the Namwon coast. Along with the Dombenang-gil(pathway) near Oedolgae, it is one of the most beautiful coastal walkways in Korea. 15~20m tall rocky cliffs surround the area, and there are Keun-ung(hill) in the middle of the walkway. ‘Ung’ means a rock shade (hill) on the coast or cliff in Jeju dialect. The emerald blue ocean is bluer and more transparent than the Mediterranean or the Aegean Sea.
There is a habitat of camellias, measuring 10-12m in height and 20-35m in circumference. Bright red flowers bloom in winter, offering an exotic appeal. It is designated Monument #39 of Jeju Special Self-Governing Province and has been protected since 1982
