All the faces of this volcanic cone are fair, with 5 round and low peaks surrounding the crater. The deep and low crater is nearly a perfect circle, but paves into a lava flowing valley to the west forming a horse-shoe shape. Parts of the eastern slope have pine forests, and the rest bramble and grass, with a farming area surrounded by Japanese cedars in the inner crater. Graves accompanied with King Cherry Blossoms make up the crater’s face. The name was given after its barrel shape, hence Tong (Barrel) Oreum Volcanic Cone.
