We’re now on the opposite side of the island from our starting point on the south coast back in January. Having started the year heading south-west, we’ve now rounded the western end of the island and are heading north-east, approaching Jeju City.
Olle 16 starts at Gonae-pogu and the first third of the trail follows the coast, passing an old signal smoke tower and rock salt field (where the local people used to make salt from the sea water). The trail then turns inland, over Susan oreum, through farmland and woodland, and through a 13th century fortification. It would have been good to explore that, but it had been raining for a while by then and we were wet through so that exploration will have to wait for another day.
