The entrance to Seongneol Oreum Volcanic Cone is located halfway between Jeju-si and Seogwipo-si on the 1st Hoengdan Road linking both cities. The volcanic cone, 750.2m above sea level, is in the highest section of the road, which divides the island into two parts, north and south. The region is also the starting point of the path up Hallasan Mountain along the eastern slope. Thus, the national park management office, a rest area, cafeteria, facilities for mountain climbers and tourists, and a spacious parking lot can be found here. Standing here, the view is magnificent. The name Seongneol originated by the shape of the volcanic cone, which looks like a fortress fortified by a number of a large plank, called "Neol" in Korean. In Chinese characters, it is written as Seongpanak. On the western foot of the cone, which stands between the volcanic cone and Sara Oreum Volcanic Cone, there was a grassy field called Jokeunsokbat. The northwest side also had a grassy plain called Sokbat. But now, these fields are all covered in pines and Japanese cedars. Located 1,000 to 1,100m above sea level, these broad fields had Samuiyang Oreum Volcanic Cone as well as a road connecting to Yeongcheon-dong, Seogwipo-si in the past. Colonies of azaleas and holly trees grow along a stream and various kinds of butterflies and birds sing here, while cows and horses graze about. Korea's distinguished butterfly scholar, the late Seok Ju-myeong, admired the field's magnificent beauty and called it Halla Garden.
