Climbing an oreum

oreumWe climbed an oreum (mini volcanic crater) yesterday. I don’t know the name because I can’t find it on a map. My transliteration of the Korean name on the notice at the bottom of the trail is ‘Oreum Koanri’.

We walked through the woods to get to the oreum and when we redemerged into the crater it was like a lost world – high sides to the crater making it seem completely isolated. The floor of the crater was flat, which leads me to conclude that it has been full of water at some stage in the past.

I had some fun taking photos on the way up. I hope you enjoy them.
