2017-02-09 (Thursday) Jeju Olle Trail News and Updates


We have one volunteer guided walk on the trail for Thursday, February 9, 2017.

Again today Lee Ma-eum is guiding nine people on Route 9.

Guided Walk Schedule (FEBRUARY 2017)


All walks begin from the route start point at 9:30 a.m. unless otherwise noted – red symbol in brackets (역 ) means the walk will start from the end point. A yellow box indicates no guided walk for that day. Try to arrive before 9:30 a.m. for greetings. Guided walks are in the Korean language with some limited English on occasions depending on the volunteer and are free of charge. Prepare suitable clothing for the weather and some snacks or drink. Walkers usually each lunch together at a restaurant (please pay for this). If you wish to join a guided walk you can just turn up, or pre-register (we prefer this) by sending me an email with the date and route you wish to join.

Our Mongolian sister trail will have its opening from June 17 through to June 21 2017. There will be a direct flight operated from Jeju Island to Ulaan Baatar. The price will be 1,470,000 WON for the whole trip and reservations should begin next week. Any interested international walkers should contact the office directly: jejuolle@jejuolle.org.

We also have a representative over from Mongolia at the moment learning how to make our Ganse pony dolls. This know-how will then go back to Mongolia where they will make more dolls using leather and cashmere for the trail.

Our exploration team were out yesterday at the end point of Route 17 and the start point of Route 18. They installed a new stamp box for walkers in front of the Ganse Lounge.
