Introduction
Geomumoreum, with an altitude of 456m, is located in Beonyeong-ro, Jocheon-eup, Jeju-si and refers to a small volcano (also called Oreum in Jeju dialect).

Geomunoreum was created by volcanic activities between 100,000 and 300,000 years ago. Lava flow from the crater went along the coastal slope to the Northeast and formed a unique geographical feature called Seonheulgot. The lave flow also formed Bengdwigul Cave on the left side, and Manjanggul Cave, Gimnyeonggul Cave, Yongcheondonggul Cave and Dangcheomuldonggul Cave on the right side. Each of these caves has its own unique features.

Upon entering Geomunoreum, visitors are met by a dense forest filled with Japan cedars. Further along, visitors will see a deciduous broad-leaved forest, shrubbery, and an evergreen broad-leaved forest. Not only featuring various types of forests, Geomunoreum is also a breeding place for resident birds such as Brown-Eared Bulbul, Korean bush warbler, Varied Tit, Streptopelia Orientalis, White-Backed Woodpecker and migratory birds such as Fairy Pitta and Tricolor Flycatcher.

After it was designated as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, many visitors has been visiting the area to enjoy its trekking course as an ecological exploring area.

Excluding Tuesdays, the exploring paths are open from 9am to 12:30pm in 30 minute intervals. A reservation must be made in advance for this activity.
