This is a complex volcano on which the east, west, and south sides of this volcanic cone are steep and reveal sedimentary rock layers. The western side has a cliff facing the sea and the double hybrid volcanic edifice to the north. The Dang in the name Cheodang Oreum Volcanic Cone stands for shrine. It is said that the foot of this mountain held a shrine that worshipped a snake deity called ‘Sagwi’. Sagwi was misinterpreted through the years into Chagwi and the shrine was named ‘Chagwidang Shrine’. The volcanic cone received its name from the shrine and got its name Chagwi Oreum Volcanic Cone. Dangsanbong Volcanic Cone is the name of this volcanic cone in Chinese characters. The creek that runs from the southeast to the southwest is called Jagwinae or Jagunae. In Tamra-jido, a map of Jeju Island, the creek was displayed as Jagwinae and Jagunae. As Jagwitbengdui was co-displayed in Chinese characters, it can be assumed that the term was a secondary name for Jagwi or Jagu. The name Chagwi is a reading of the name in modern Chinese character pronounciation. It is fair to call this Jagwi as the locals have been calling this creek as Jagwinae. Due to its proximity with the creek, this volcanic cone was named Jagwi Oreum Volcanic Cone. When the Jagwidang Shrine was built, the volcanic cone was called Dangsan Oreum Volcanic Cone. As the years passed, the name Dangsan Oreum Volcanic Cone was forgotten and this volcanic cone came to be known as Dang Oreum Volcanic Cone.
