토산봉(망오름)
토산봉(망오름)


This volcanic cone is located approximately 900m north of Tosan Elementary School in Tosan-ri, Pyoseon-myeon and its western slope is intersected by the road near Ilju Road that connects Tosan 1(il)-ri and Tosan 2(i)-ri. 


In the Joseon Dynasty era, a beacon fire station was located here so that people could communicate with Jabae Beacon Fire Station in the west and Dalsan Beacon Fire Station in the east. This is why it is also called Mang Oreum Volcanic Cone (Mangsan Volcanic Cone) and the field in front of the cone is called Mangap while the field in back of the cone is called Mangdwi. 


Tosanbong Volcanic Cone is not tall but has a complicated topography and the top of its ridge is long and well-developed, covered in a forest. It is a hybrid volcanic edifice made up of two horseshoe-shaped craters that open to the east and to the west respectively. All slopes are covered in a lush forest of pine trees. 


- Origin and Etymology of Volcanic Cone’s Name: Tosanbong Volcanic Cone is named for its resemblance to the shape of a rabbit and it is also called Tosanmang or Mang Oreum Volcanic Cone because a beacon fire station was located in the region in the Joseon Dynasty era.
