    Introduction
    Located north of Dodonghang Port, Dodong Lighthouse is also called Haengnam Lighthouse. From here, you can get a great view of Jeodonghang Port and its surrounding sea. The coastal walking path, starting from the left of Dodonghang Port, leads to the lighthouse. The 1.4-kilometer walking path from Dodonghang Port to Dodong Lighthouse is fascinating and the round trip takes roughly an hour and a half. Another way to reach the lighthouse is through the Haengnam mountain path behind Ulleung-gun Office.

    On clear days, you can see Dokdo to the east from atop the lighthouse. To the north, you can see the beautiful landscape of Jeodonghang, Chotdae Candlestick rock, and Seonginbong Peak (the symbol of Ulleungdo).

    The lighthouse has long served as a beacon for Ulleung sailors. In 2006, it was newly renovated to include a small park and exhibition gallery. Nearby is Dodong Yaksu Spring. The sparkling water is said to help digestion and treat skin problems.
