Cheonjeyeon Falls, Seogwipo

3.9
#5 of 31 in Parks in Seogwipo
Enjoy a scenic path and the sight of Cheonjeyeon Falls, tumbling in three tiers from 22 m (72 ft) and then from 30 m (98 ft), respectively. Gushing out of rocky formation into a large 21 m deep (69 ft) pond, the first waterfall offers a spectacular view, which you can enjoy from a railing at a safe distance. Called the "Pond of the Emperor of Heaven," this national treasure supports a number of rare plants growing in the vicinity of the cascades--most notably solipnan reed, which makes it a national monument. The hike will take you past a picturesque red and white metal pedestrian bridge and a Buddhist temple. Bring walking shoes, bug spray, and water. Cheonjeyeon Falls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Seogwipo Edition.

  • We didn't like it at all. There was pretty much no water falling out of the water falls. You climb very steep stairs and get very tired. The bridge is good for a few nice clicks though.  more »

  • The waterfall is not that WOW-ish. But if you have never seen a waterfall before then go ahead and visit. It's connected to Yeomiji Botanical garden,so you can save time and visit 2 places at once.
  • Nice water fall site. The price of the entrance ticket is honest
  • Nice hiking, easy enough to do with kids. The Cheonggyecheon falls lead you to a large pond. We soaked our feet in the refreshingly freezing water, must do! Easy walks to other two water falls All considered this places makes a nice combo of hiking and chilling by the water
  • With a perfect weather, it was soooooo great to walk around. Beware of a bit of ups and downs to visit 3 different but somehow connected "falls"!
  • Loved this place. Columnar basalt in the top falls is interesting.
