Seonheulgot Dongbaek-Dongsan is a forest that was created when tumuli were formed after lava flowed on the surface of Dongbaek-Dongsan, and the temperature and the humidity was ideal for ferns to grow in the cracks of the rocks. As such, it has now become a thick temperate evergreen forest. There are various cave formations including lava tunnels. There are also tall trees such as camellia, Red bark oak, Quercus Glauca, Siebold’s chinquapin, and Dendropanax. Since there are many wetlands throughout the forest, there are a variety of hygrophytes, such Water-shield, Utricularia, and Twister bur-reed as well as pteridophytes, such as Old world forked fern, Jeju grapefern, and Autumn fern. There are also many insects and animals cohabiting in the forest, such as the giant water bug, diving beetle, leopard frog, Jeju salamander, stagbeetle, Japanese paradise flycatcher, fiary peeta, Ussuri mamushi, and Black headed snake.
