The Korea Forest Service has selected some of the best forest trails in the country, including some on Jeju Island, where many of our UoH friends will be going. We would be so happy if we could feel the autumn breeze while breathing in phytoncides and fresh air!
Each space in the forest has its own story, including the Witch’s House, Snow White’s House, Dwarf’s House, and more. Kids will love it!

It’s a gift from nature that has blossomed into a spectacular valley. ‘Meoche’ means ‘stony and overgrown place’ and ‘Wat’ means ‘field’ in the Jeju dialect. Therefore, Merchewat Forest Path means “a forest path with lots of stones and trees”. As you enter the forest along the vast ranch meadows, a magnificent primeval forest unfolds before you.

The Saryeoni Forest Trail is a favorite among travelers who love trekking because the original forest is largely untouched. It is also a Jeju Biosphere Reserve (Biosphere Resev) designated by UNESCO in 2002. It is perfect for those who want to take a stroll in the shade of the tall cedar trees above, basking in the sunshine and enjoying the cool breeze.
