Cheonjeyeon Falls, Seogwipo

(240+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
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. Add Cheonjeyeon Falls and other attractions to your Seogwipo trip itinerary using our Seogwipo travel itinerary planner.

  • Chunjeyeon waterfalls. Stories say angels used to come down and had bath here. There are 3 waterfalls but you can only see them during summer. Other season you can only see the second waterfall and the pond. 天帝淵
  • spring is not good time to visit, tree/flower still not grow up yet.
  • The flow was less when i visited this place. According to my observation, the water seems to be contaminated with pollution.The place is crowded with lot of sea food eataries . I did not enjoy my visit to this place
  • Make sure you have energy for hiking to see all three waterfalls. Take a lot of energy and time.
  • Amazing place very beautiful waterfall
