Route 05 : Namwon - Soesokkak Olle



Total Distance : 13.4Km  Total Time : 4-5hour   Difficulty :

From coast to village, you can feel the Jeju with your five sense on this route. The route goes on from Namwon to one of the most beautiful coastal trails in Korea, Keun-ung(hill) Walkway and Soesokkak Estuary where freshwater and seawater comes together. The scenery of camellia fences around the village makes relaxing and cozy atmosphere. We have restored 3 sections of the coastal trail, with support Namwon-eup and the 93rd battalion of the Marine Corps. It is particularly pleasant to hike through the forest of subtropical plants toward the ocean. Hearing the sound of the waves while hiking is unforgettable experience.

How to find the Starting Point
How to find the way back from the Finishing Point

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.

Jongjeong Taewootge

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.

Keun-ung(hill) Walkway

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.

Camellia Habitat in Wimi-ri

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
