With the main summit being on the southeastern peak, the northern and western peaks three together form a 1000m wide circlular crater. The northern peak’s backbone reaches down towards the crater, while the western peak has a steadier climb, eroded from the top. Some parts of the slopes have black pines forests, and the other parts are covered with grass and shrubs. The shape of the mountain is said to resemble a bard Confucian student’s hat (Yugeon) and thus called Yugeone Oreum Volcanic Cone (or Yugeoni Oreum Volcanic Cone), but this is merely an interpretation of Chinese characters. Some people call it Igine Oreum or Igeuni Oreum Volcanic Cone, and you can also see it written in Chinese characters, Igicheonak, or Igeunak, so the name of the mountain is not clear, and its origin is unknown. It is not clear whether the sound of Iginae Oreum Volcanic Cone, Igeunae Oreum Volcanic Cone, or Yugeone Oreum Volcanic Cone is indeed Igi-nae or Igin-ae, and its meaning is not clear. It is rather strange to explain that the name originated from the Chinese character yugeon. We now insist that the cone should be rechristened Iginae Oreum Volcanic Cone.
