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 reviews
This place is just a little hike for most. It does have about 300 steps up, but they are set up for a nice pace. Great views up and down, but not much to the crater itself. During morning this place..... more »
If you are a nature lover, you should definitely go to this place. Scenic beauty and fresh air can get. Amazing and incredible place. Worth it to visit. more »
An absolute must while in Jeju. The walk up is stimulating rather than stressful and the morning views are wonderful. 5,000 won well spent. more »
It's one of the most memorable moments in this Jeju trip. It's a well-reserved UNESCO heritage. Not a difficult route to climb up. But if you go there during summer, it'll be a bit humid and you will be so sweaty climbing up all those stairs. Nice place to visit with your beloved one because you can be surrounded by the sea and enjoy a peaceful moment together
Love and Peace
Windy and cooling in December, has a very nice scenery, requires to be fit enough to climb long stairs. Highly recommended to visit if you’re in Jeju.
Worth to visit if you love short hiking. At the summit you can see the beautiful city view. As one of the three UNESCO's World Heritage site, this place is surrounded by beautiful scenery. After hiking, you can have the opportunity to see Women's Diving performance. The street food and cafés around is also a good breaking time to enjoy after 🎉
