Gimnyeong Maze Park

김녕미로공원

Gimnyeong Maze Park on the island of Jeju (Cheju) is a fun experience for visitors to the island. The maze was the brainchild of the American professor Frederic H. Dustin, a long-term teacher at Cheju National University.

The maze is in the shape of the Jeju Island and has a number of symbols of this beautiful island embedded in its layout: a serpent, an historic object of worship on the island until recently, Jeju horses first brought here by Mongolian invaders in the 13th century; the Sparrowhawk, shipwrecked on Jeju along with Dutch mariner Hendrick Hamel and Bronze Age dolmens.

The Gimnyeong Maze is quite a challenge to get out off and some visitors have been known to take an hour to exit or have been forced to cal for help. usually though 20 minutes is enough to navigate yourself around the immaculately kept hedges.

Ring the bell when you finally get out. Gimnyeong Maze Park can easily be visited on a half day or full day taxi tour from either Jeju City or Seogwipo taking in the nearby Manjanggul Cave and Gimnyeongsagul Cave.
