Yeongcheon Stream / Hyodoncheon Stream

Originating high on Hallasan Mountain, Yeongcheon and Hyodoncheon Streams converge and head into the ocean near Seogwipo. Tracking around those streams, visitors will meet the all kinds of vegetation that grows in subtropical, temperate, frigid, and alpinezones. In particular, Cymbidium kanran, Diapensia lapponica, Psilotum nudum, Crypsinus hastatus, and Cyrtosia septentrionalis are strictly protected under Natural Nature Reserve law.

Donnaeko Valley

The compound word 'Donnaeko' is formed from the words 'don' meaning "circling," 'nae' for "stream" and 'ko' meaning "entrance." It means the origin of the stream running around the Yeongcheonak volcanic cone. Located at Yeongcheon Stream, Donnaeko Valley has been a popular destination for tourists in summer season because of its crystal clear water gushing out from underground all year round.

Soesokkak Estuary

Soesokkak Estuary is where Yeongcheon and Hyodoncheon Streams meet before the ocean. 'Soe' means "Hyodon village," 'so' is "large pool of water" and 'kkak' is "the end point of something." Thus, Soesokkak is a pool of water in Hyodon village where two streams reach the ocean. Beautifully and thickly-formed woods and oddly shaped rocks surround Soesokkak.
