This section of Jirisan Dulle-gil stretches 18.6km between Omi Village, Omi-ri, Toji-myeon and Nandong Village, Ondang-ri, Gwangui-myeon in Gurye-gun, Jeollanam-do. The trail starts from Omi Village and passes through Yongdu Village, Gurye Center, Guman Village, and Ondong Village before reaching Nandong Village.
The Omi-Nandong Section refers to a trail along Seosicheon and Seomjingang River. The embankment road along the river offers a great view of Jirisan Mountain and open fields. In the summer, you’ll be pleasantly distracted by the long array of day lilies along the embankment road.
While best known for Geumhwallakji, Omi Village also has other popular tourist attractions such as the Joseon-style house called Unjoru and a house called Gokjeonjae built during the Japanese Colonial Period. Yongdu Village is one of the villages where the Baekdudaegan starts. The village has a historical site called Yonghojeong, which is a symbol of anger and resistance against the Japanese colonial rule, as well as the well-preserved ecosystem around Seomjingang River where otters still live.
While walking on the embankment road along Seosicheon, you’ll come across the Jirisan Dulle-gil Gurye Center. You might also get a chance to visit the 5-day market, where people still do business the old way. So in the Omi-Nandong Section, you walk on the Seosicheon Flower Road in the cool river breeze and see how the villagers carry on their lives in an old-fashioned way.
