This fall, let’s feel the change of seasons while walking down the forests of Jeju. Jeju’s forests are waiting for us with refreshing shades of seasonal colors, in the city, at night and at places you can enjoy with your kids.

제주 올레 9코스 속 숲길 여행 <Goonsan Oreum and Andeok Valley>

In the fall, there are many sunny days without many clouds, which makes people walk under direct sunlight. But they say it's more dangerous with more exposure to ultraviolet rays because the solar altitude is lower in the fall. Still, you can’t miss Olle-gil in the fall. Let’s go for a walk to Jeju Olle Course 9 with cool shades and valleys.

At this time of year, not only the tourists but also the local people go on a walk to enjoy the autumn foliage. Using a car could take a long time due to the heavy traffic, so taking a Road 1100 route bus (the Bus 240 Stop at the entrance of Cheona Forest Path, Hallasan Dulle-gil) is recommended if you plan to finish the course. The path itself is not an easy one, taking more than 3 hours one-way. It’s a long way to walk back and forth, so taking a bus is recommended.

*Take a walk from the end of the course to get a bus at the bus stop at the entrance of Yeongsil (Trail).

You can feel the true beauty of autumn at Cheona Valley, upstream of Musucheon Stream. The autumn leaves of Hallasan Mountain begin in mid-October and reach their peak in early November.

*Since the valley is in the middle of the path, entrance is prohibited for 2 days after the rain.

Hairtail fish in the fall preparing for the winter are getting fatter and firmer. So they say hairtails in the fall are tastier than pork belly and more valuable than beef.

Roasted fresh hairtails and hairtail stew made of fresh hairtails only are some of the famous local dishes in Jeju. Hairtail stew boiled with hairfish cuts and sweet pumpkin cuts boasts its light and refreshing taste, just like Jeju’s autumn sky.
