Sangumburi Crater, Jeju

3.5
#3 of 6 in Wildlife in Jeju
Often described as a natural stadium packed with thick shrubs and magnolia, maple, and pine trees, Sangumburi Crater is home to over 400 plant and animal species. A natural monument and the only one of its kind in the country, the crater erupted violently and quickly without ejecting much lava, leaving a 130 m (426 ft) deep hole. A short walk up the hill along a well-paved path leads to a small pavilion, with the main observation platform offering panoramic views of the ocean, the mountain, and other volcanic "oreums" (parasitic cones) nearby. Walk around the rim and look for Jeju burial mounds surrounded by trapezoidal stone walls and guarded from evil spirits by little stone figures. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Jeju trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • By bus from the center of Xipu, you can go straight to the entrance to the mountain, and the 6,000 tickets are available. The flow of people is very large mountain jun not, to the time is the peak of the mangrass, the whole mountain is also dense with dense hemp grass. Go to the crater to get different rocky trails, and along the way you can capture large, crowd-free shots of grass and wood. The crater is just a forest and plant that is not very attractive. The fir forest road only places the mountain king's not-so-strong Yiwen stone, very special.
