Strengths:The heavy concentration of tangerine fields provides a detailed look into a Jeju farmer’s life and its main agricultural crop. From the outside, viewing Yeongcheonsa temple set in and up a hill is a quick highlight. Reaching Namwon, after completing the longest trail Olle offers, can only be seen as a positive.
Weaknesses:The vast majority of Olle’s footing on this course is either on wide roads of asphalt or concrete. With the sun blaring, any hiker will be feeling the heat sooner than later. It appears not to be clear where exactly the spring, Geoseunsaemi, starts and of its full route because no on-site signage is provided.
English learning opportunities:Dangke Port in Pyoseon, Gatneup Marsh, Geogae, Ganeungae, the Marine Corps Trail, Mang Oreum, Geoseunsaemi spring, Yeongcheonsa temple and spring, Beolpo Yeondae
Quotable:“The nature [on Jeju] is subtle and exquisite … Above all, it is feminine … I hope that people can appreciate the femininity of nature. One should not expect to see the tallest, the broadest, or the grandest; but to see the natural details assemble into a beautiful ensemble.”
