Saebyeol Oreum (oreum means “small volcanic cone” in Jeju dialect) forms small peaks beneath its highest peak’s north-west and north-east sides. It has a horseshoe-shaped crater spreading above its western flank and a small horseshoe-shaped crater on the northern side. When viewed from the northwest, the clear curving ridge of the crater unfolds smoothly. Saebyeol Oreum is named after its resemblance to the morning star which brightens alone in the evening sky.
The peaceful looking field on the oreum is actually the site where fierce battles took place between General Choi Yeong’s forces and Mongolian forces at the end of the Goryeo Dynasty (918~1392). Since 2000, the Jeju Jeongwol Daeboreum Fire Festival has been held every year on the oreum to pray for health, longevity and an abundant harvest of the year. It has become a popular tourist attraction for domestic and foreign visitors alike, Idalbong Peak is located in its north-western vicinity.
