A signature feature of Jeju Island is its 368 oreum, or parallel volcanoes. Each is as diverse as the island’s ecological zones, flora, and fauna. No two oreum are exactly alike.
Concluding The Weekly’s Hike Jeju project in the fall of 2011, these are the top 100 selections for the best available oreum to hike, and will be detailed more in-depth online.
Following is the rank, oreum name, general location, type of cinder cone (either horseshoe shaped, conic — meaning pointed crater, circular, or composite — meaning a combination of more than one crater), oreum’s height, the peak’s height from sea level (in parentheses), and a great reason to get out and experience each one.
