Seongsan Ilchulbong, Seogwipo

4.6
Rising from the ocean like a rocky crown, the World Heritage Site of Seongsan Ilchulbong stands as a testament to the region's ancient volcanic activity. Formed nearly 5,000 years ago by an eruption, the formation, known as a "tuff cone," features sheer walls with a depressed center. Hike your way up to the top of the raised crater, which stands 180 m (591 ft) high and has a diameter of nearly 600 m (1,969 ft), and look out over the rugged interior. You'll also get to enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding ocean and coastline from the rim.

  • The afternoon from the island back to the city of Sunrise Peak, just beside the mountain, bought a string of fish cakes, drank 2 cups of hot soup to the mountain. The mountain road is very good to walk, the upper and lower mountains walk is the different road, may appreciate to the different scenery, is very good. It's almost sunset time when you go down the mountain, and it's really a beautiful view of the Sun sun on the sea.

  • People's Republic of China organizations years ago among tourists went up as bad memories from Milligan, last October, a trip really was able to enjoy the peace and quiet. The weather was good. Sacred mountain sunrise at the Museum before the box office information for Bong up to hear more. Enough to know.

  • A must place to visit while is Jeju Island. Scenery is epically beautiful, especially on a sunny day. Many fast food stalls, restaurants and small department stores around the entrance, so food is not a worry. Entrance fee is at 2000 per Adult. Really tiring 180m above sea level climb, but definitely worth the effort!
  • The main attraction of Jeju. A great place and hike is reasonable. The view along the way is fantastic. The small town at the foot of the hill sells everything a tourist needs. After the hike, try the fresh hallabong juice for refreshment, it is a wonderful experience.
  • Good hiking place. Although i'm so tired to climb up to the top,i can enjoy the great view, very very very very great. Fresh atmosphere
  • Very nice view! It took us about 10mins to do the hike. We tried to see the sunrise but could not see it due to bad weather. The view of the crater, water and the town below was beautiful though.
  • With a bit of influence of the incoming typhoon made the best ever exciting experience at this place! A must-visit-place in Jeju Island. Beeare of the VERY STRONG wind high up there!
