Inside this horse-shoe shape crater, which is wide open to the northeast, is a protruding crater (Al Oreum Volcanic Cone: 268m altitude and 13m height from the lowest volcanic ash), and a ridge that encompasses this is said to resemble the shape of a mother holding her infant. To the east of the crater big and small peaks, which look like old tombs, stand out to form a hilly area, and the highest point is called Omidongsan Hill. All the faces of the slope are forested by pine trees from the foot up to the halfway point. The insides of the crater and Al Oreum Volcanic Cone’s summit is a flat field of grass. All together, the shape resembles a mother holding her infant, so it is called Moji Oreum Volcanic Cone. The Chinese characters Hwagugu literally means “a cone within the mouth of a cone” and stands as a sharp peak in the center of the bigger cone, which is commonly called Al Oreum Volcanic Cone.
