Yongsu-pogu(port) is where Korea's first Catholic Priest Kim Daegun arrived after returning home ordination in Shanghai, China. The exotic architecture of the memorial church sits on the top of a hill, facing the ocean.
Aged trees in considerable sizes draw attention on this pathway. Jeju Olle has newly explored the path and gave it the name 'Gomok(old tree) Forest Pathway.'
The forest is full of brackens. Because both sides of the pathway are full of bracken, Jeju Olle calls it the 'Gosari(bracken) Forest Pathway'
Nakcheon-ri, Hankyeong-myeon, Jeju City is where Jeju's first blacksmith started 350 years ago. The tale of the place goes the nine holes dug for clay, which is the main ingredient for smithing, were filled with water and became a spring. In the experience garden of Nakcheon-ri, there are farm produce experience center and concert hall called 'Rock Center.' Nevertheless, the highlight is the Ahop-Gut Village front yard with 1,000 chairs handcrafted by the villagers.
The reservoir was d with levees put up in 1957. It is a valuable water supply for nearby ricefields. The pine tree forest and the reed and cattail habitat in the area are winter home to migratory birds.
Jeoji Oreum(small extinct volcano) is beautiful the top, but the forest path up and down the Oreum is even more so. It starts with steep wooden stairs and continues to a Dulle-gil(byroad) in the middle. At the top is a forest path on a crater, and it is just mesmerizing to look at the dense forest inside the hollow crater.
Fifty special force rangers restored and organized the forest path that had vanished. 3km long trail connecting over seven sections were d and restored in just two days. There is a mysterious vibe with preserved plants and ecology while hiking the trail because no one used to hike this forest pathway until the restoration.
