Dong Geomun Oreum (동거문오름)

동거문오름   East Geomun Oreum Trip011gravesjpeg by you.

I'm back to hiking up oreums.

I've been talking about wanting to write an oreum guidebook all summer, and now I'm finally getting out and getting some research, taking notes, getting photos, and the hardest of all for me, writing. This oreum is on most maps as Dong Geomun Oreum (동거문오름). Dong (동) is Korean for east, so don't get it confused with the UNESCO Geomun Oreum. This oreum has 5 peaks, and has one of the most impressive faces I've been to with a ridge dropping off to a 40 degree angle right below you!
