Daejeong 대정 : Songaksan Mountain (송악산)

Songaksan Mountain is part of Olle 10 trail .. I am surprised and slightly sad that I wasn’t able to walk here last time (since I decided to take the WRONG course … misadventure?

This time my friend drove, and we weaved around the same sad narrow road but with a car this time.  It was even scarier but we made it nonetheless!

Here, you can ride a pony … for a fee of course.

Actually, the course doesn’t look that great but the coastal view is nice … I wonder why I didn’t upload any … 😦

This was the furtherest we went … There were a lot of history here with the Japanese since they used Jeju as a base during the second world war. Even in our very short walk, we can see the caves and tiny storages on the side of the mountains.  I think there is a huge lookout point as well but I didn’t have time to make it up there.

Anywho, it was a long drive back and when we did get back we went to a restaurant serving the famous black pork of Jeju.  There are two types, one that comes in a plate, and one that comes in a skewer!
