Sangumburi Crater, Jeju
(3.8/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Often described as a natural stadium packed with thick shrubs and magnolia, maple, and pine trees, Sangumburi Crater is home to over 400 plant and animal species. A natural monument and the only one of its kind in the country, the crater erupted violently and quickly without ejecting much lava, leaving a 130 m (426 ft) deep hole. A short walk up the hill along a well-paved path leads to a small pavilion, with the main observation platform offering panoramic views of the ocean, the mountain, and other volcanic "oreums" (parasitic cones) nearby. Walk around the rim and look for Jeju burial mounds surrounded by trapezoidal stone walls and guarded from evil spirits by little stone figures.

  • Extinct volcano crater, one of the most beautiful on Jeju Island, though not as high as Hallasan. Green forest landscapes and the blue of the sky is impressive. On with the frightened that the height can be cold, so we have brought not only jackets, but also sweaters. And in vain. Despite the rainy day, it was quite warm, so the walk turned out to be pleasant.
