My boss gave us a Friday off, so my co-worker and I decided to seize the day and go for a hike. She chose the Olle 9, a route on the southwestern part of Jeju Island, which runs from Daepyeong Port to Hwasan Beach. It’s a very short hike at only 7.1 kilometers, but two massive oreums make it rather challenging. The ascents are filled with rocks and require a bit of maneuvering, but the awesome views at the summit make it a worthwhile sweat. While descending, we got a beautiful view of Andeok Valley and yellow-coated rapeseed fields. Although the trek takes only a few hours, it is filled with natural beauty around every corner. These shots offer a mere glimpse into the fantastic scenery of the Jeju Olle 9. If you’re ever around, definitely check it out.
