Seongsan Ilchulbong, Seogwipo
(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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. Seongsan Ilchulbong is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Seogwipo Edition.

  • Cool Place, great mountain rock formation. Ilchulbong Peak is an hour travel via InterCity Bus #701 from Jeju City Hall cost around 2,050won. There are eateries and souvenir shops nearby. 
  • Sun gave up because it was a cloudy morning tried to go and leave peacefully. 11 when I arrived. Followed by a steep climb up stairs, so still dark before sunrise, it will be tough, I think. It is a great view from the top. The air was very good.
