This volcanic cone is lying down from the south to the northwest. The ridge stretches straight from the south to the north and forms a gradual and flat back of the ridge to the west, as well as a horseshoe-shaped crater that opens gradually to the southwest. It is called ‘Saemi Oreum Volcanic Cone’ because of its spring, which is surrounded and protected by an oval-shaped stonewall at the northeastern foot (in the direction of Wasan-ri) of the volcanic cone. In the past, houses (Won) could be found on the foot of the volcanic cone (road between Saemi Oreum Volcanic Cone and Kkoekkori Oreum Volcanic Cone). Even now, site such as Wondong and Wonteo remain, and Jongnambat can be found on the eastern foot. The upper region and southwestern slope of the volcanic cone is covered in a forest of pine trees and Japanese cedar, while other areas of the grassy volcanic cone are covered in scrubs such as Miscanthus Sinensis and grass. At the foot of the volcanic cone is a colony of Sawtooth oak.
