Seongsan Ilchulbong, Seogwipo

4.6
#1 of 166 in Things to do in Jeju Island
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.

    A bit touristy, but not so much that. Nice place that provides beautiful views once the staircase goes up. It takes 20 to 40 Minutes to mount, c is rather short, but this can be steep for the elderly.

    Going with no plan to Jeju Island, with the advice of a friend, visited. It took 1 hour 40 minutes by bus from old Jeju. I think it is better because it was the one who was using the bus, but if multiple by tourist taxi was dropped even further. You can never feel became sweaty in climbing a stairway to the top because the weather was hot, but good views from the top and feel the wind.
