Strengths: There are two reasons to walk this trail, the collection of chairs at Nakcheon Village and Jeoji Oreum. Nakcheon is a bit of an oddity in an area where farms prevail. The passion and craftsmanship are apparent in every piece, and also appear before and after on the trail in many spots to rest at certain selective points. And never to be forgotten is Jeoji Oreum, another top 10 spot on the Olle trails. The view at the top is worth every second to get there.
Weaknesses:A whole lot of nothing on the trail besides the two spots mentioned above.
English learning opportunities:Jeolbuam, Yonsu Reservoir, Special Forces Brigade Trail, Brackeny path, Winding path, Jeoji Oreum
Quotable:“At the entrance to [Nakcheon] village’s activity center stands an enormous wooden chair, composed of 28 smaller chairs, which [Yang Gi Hoon] made. He said that the structure is a metaphor for the world. Although we may all come from different places and have different ways of living, “we are one because of our differences.” One day, he hopes to fill the 28 chairs with people from different places in the world. Whether their place of origin is a big city or a small village, he feels that every culture is a necessary component of the world.” -- Melissa Trias, Jeju Weekly
