Route 16 follows the coastal cliffs for an hour or so before turning inland and uphill. It goes beside farms growing beans, corn and peppers, cuts through wild forest and climbs over an Oreum. There are 368 Oreums (extinct volcanic cones) on Jeju and we climbed a few in the last month. This is the last one.
Good weather today and an easy walk.
