The 11th Saryeoni Forest Eco-healing Festival (May. 25 to Jun. 2)
If you are a hiking lover, you can have a rare opportunity to visit one of Jeju's most unique yet inaccessible oreums in May!
The festival has been organized by Saryeoni Forest Committee and Jeju Special Self Governing Province and takes place on eight sections of the path. Starting points are two; Saryeoni Oreum (사려니) and Bulgeun Oreum (붉은오름).
Activities are also included such as learning handicrafts, trying traditional wedding costumes, a photo contest and tying ribbons of hope.
Mulchat Oreum (물찻오름) path has been closed in 2008 due to damage from erosion by overcrowded visitors. The oreum, which rises to 717.2 meters above sea level, has a crater lake which is rare due to being permanently full.
