Ulleung-do is a South Korean island 120 km (75 mi) east of the Korean Peninsula, formerly known as the Dagelet Island or Argonaut Island in Europe, Yulingdao (郁陵岛) in China, and Utsuryo (鬱陵島) in Japan. Volcanic in origin, the rocky steep-sided island is the top of a large stratovolcano which rises from the seafloor, reaching a maximum elevation of 984m at Seonginbong Peak. The island is 11.3km in length and 12.4km in width; it has an area of 73.15km2. It has a population of 10,426 inhabitants.The island makes up the main part of Ulleung County, North Gyeongsang Province, South Korea and is a popular tourist destination. The main city of Ulleung-do is the port of Dodong (도동/道洞), which serves as the main ferry port between Ulleung-do and the South Korean mainland. After tourism, the main economic activity is fishing, including its well-known harvest of squid, which can be seen drying in the sun in many places.HistoryThe island consists primarily of trachyandesite rock. A major explosive eruption about 9,350 years ago reached a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 6 and deposited tephra as far as central Honshū over 800km away, while producing pyroclastic flows on the island and decapitating its top to form a caldera.

  • [19] ... Quite a bit of time to go by boat only, except that it really is the perfect place. I think that has a lot of foreign countries in moments. We are often familiar with the appearance of our country facing with a strange look. Really beautiful and also beautiful. From on high, overlooking the beautiful scenery is especially nice. I think a lot of mountains and waters around Ulleungdo's village and its lively blend that looks ... True ... like I think want to see this figure even to live there. Dokdo Dokdo and Ulleungdo on the left to go travelling, and for everyone. Due to the top, but that's hard to give up what a beautiful ... It's worth enough to go places. I feel the same excitement with me necessarily directly go to evening. (FYI, I think a lot of tourists side grunge hard top and more expensive; prices are pretty expensive price. these two I felt is a downer of Ulleungdo).

  • It makes perfect sense to have a good season to travel in the summer if you just jumped into the waters of the sea would be too clear and clean. Embark on the horizon and the sky and the ground ~ ~ a tremendous scenery

  • Nari basin camping car had two trips. This was more a ton in August. There are a lot of people looking at the beautiful scenery of life never went back 2 times more psyched to go IM ... Blah 2 days 1 night also came back to stay in, located on the branch of the Dukes, but if you would like to visit are minbagdo and recommendations. The view is awesome, even work called pension estimated at Zuni search. Trekking enthusiasts are Island tours. Saury was wrongdoing or water times North Korea going gourmet without the taste. Guests can enjoy a trip to the Museum. In some places, there is a back-packing is also possible to create deck Hat research advance in advance to see. Personally, I'd love to live the winter challenge ~
