두산봉(말미오름)
두산봉(말미오름)


The crater rim covers both eastern and southern slopes, which has eroded to form steep cliffs. The northwestern side has a grassy field. Village residents call the volcanic cone Al Oreum Volcanic Cone. 


A forest of black pine trees covers the southeast slope to the middle of the volcanic cone. On the cliffs, zanthoxylum coreanum grows and on the bottom of the southwest slope, lycoris aurea grows naturally. Inside the crater, eulalia and cogongrass grow as a colony, with a colony of aeginetia indica growing below. On northwest slope, there is a grassy field and it is used as a farming field. 


The volcanic cone is written Dusan or Dusanbong in Chinese characters for its large size. It is also called Molmi Oreum Volcanic Cone or Mali Oreum Volcanic Cone because people would put horses out to pasture around the region in the past. Molmi Oreum Volcanic Cone and Malmi Oreum Volcanic Cone are written as Masan  or Masanbong in Chinese characters as “Ma” means “horse.” Meolmi Oreum Volcanic Cone is written as Dusan or Dusanbong as “Du” means “head.”
