After writing the guest book at the guard post, it goes up along a 3.5km-long roadway. The gentle path along the hillside is a path that men and women of all ages can walk without difficulty. Entering the forest, there are many walking courses, including birch tree courses, healing courses, and exploration courses. They are connected to each other without distinction, so you can walk around regardless of the course.

Mt. Halla, the symbol of Jeju Island, gives off different charms in all four seasons. Especially when it comes to Mt. Halla, we can't miss out on snow scenes in winter. Hallasan Mountain in colorful autumn is also beautiful, but the snow-covered, black-and-white Halla Mountain is a must-see attraction in winter. On a clear day, you can see Mt. Halla wearing a white hat in most parts of Jeju Island. A white deer, like its name, is seen lying in the back of the wall.
