The word “tong” means bucket in Korean and the shape of this Oreum’s peak does resemble a bucket. Vivid violet wild flowers are plentiful in the autumn on top of Tong Oreum.
Shaped like a horseshoe, the crater faces away from the Tong Oreum, making it seem as if the two oreums have their “back on each other”. The area has a high population of only son’s, and it is assumed among villagers that the oreum may be responsible for this.

Dangke Pogu(port) 당케포구
According to the legends, the Dangke pogu area was devastated during storms, as the huge sea waves striked the nearby villages.

There is a Halmang-dang (shrine) located near the port towards the end of the sand fields.
