  • Nice waterfall with a lot of tourists. Not much else to do there except walk a little bit and take photos in front of the waterfall.
  • The waterfall is absolutely gorgeous. Although there is a pretty short flight of stairs to descend in order to get to it, it is definitely worth it as you get to walk right up to the waterfall through climbing on the large rocks scattered around it. You could easily spend up to an hour just admiring the view and feeling the water spray at you from the falls. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who happens to be visiting Jeju, you will not regret it.
  • This unique waterfall goes directly to the sea. The walk leading to this beautiful fall, which comprises a set of stairs, could be a challenge to some but I can guarantee that it is totally rewarding especially on a hot summer day. One can get really close to the waterfall and feel the power and beauty of nature. Its splash is so soothing and refreshing. Keep an eye around you while there as rainbow may appear next to you anytime! A big arc of rainbow just happened to surround my partner when I was taking a picture of him there. How lovely!
  • Simply breathtaking... Just imagine you are sitting on a rock with sea on one side and fall on the other. Both are growling in their own way. Magical!
  • The only waterfall at Jeju that goes directly to the sea. Beautiful! 👍 Visitor can get close and feel the force of the water by walking through the rocky bay. Entrance fee is 2000won and there are some steps, less than 10mins walk, along the cliff before reaching the base of the fall. Highly recommend sight but not suitable for people who got accessibility difficulties.
