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
어제 비가 와서 그런지 노란 알이 뽕 솟아 올랐다. 일출은 비온 다다음날이 좋다는... 하산 길에 발견한 카페, 꽃담팥집. 여기는 새벽 일출시간에 문을 열어! 제주도내 어떤 전복죽보다 맛있다. 강추, 맛 대회 함 하면 장원할 듯, 강추추 more »The rain came up yesterday, and the yellow egg was rising. Sunrise is good for the next day... A café and a flower house found on the way to Hassan. Here you open the door to the dawn Sunrise time! This is more delicious than any other war in Jeju. If you want to enjoy the taste of the river,
You can go to here by public bus from jeju intercity terminal, can take around 1 hour 30 minutes. The scenery is nice and great. more »
It’s a very uphill hike, but you will be rewarded with the amazing views at the top. The path is well maintained and not exposed anywhere. Get some water on a hot day. It takes around 20 minutes to get to the top and some more to walk through the village.
The atmosphere here is tranquil, with a very picturesque view of the east coast of Jeju Island on the peak. Easily accessible by public transport, it's always crowded with locals and tourists alike who wanted to catch a rare glimpse of this unique landscape. The trek towards the top of the hill wasn't that tiring for us during the last time we went there, so I do believe it's very much suitable for anyone who wants to make it to the top of the hill. Frankly speaking, I would definitely encourage you to visit this special site as the sense of achievement and the panoramic view from atop would really intrigue you to conquer the heights and trust me, you wouldn't regret it!
