Seongsan Ilchulbong, Seogwipo

4.6
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.

  • The scenery is still very beautiful, but the mountain is not high, about half an hour can climb to the top, want to compare China's mountains or there is a certain gap, then the mountain halfway there is a separate stone, like a puppy

  • Lots of steps but there are plenty of places to rest along the way. Probably prettier to visit in Spring or Fall. It was a cold, gray and windy day, though the sun did come thru a little. The Haenyeo,...  more »

  • Must visit if you are a nature lover. The view is just amazIng. Breathtaking. Do go like an hour or two before the Sun sets, the moment the Sun shines on the mountain. Everything is just like golden in colour. Be prepared to climb stairs and stairs. It's not too hard but it does require some reasonable fitness. Really affordable entrance fee 2000won
  • A must place to visit while is Jeju Island. Scenery is epically beautiful, especially on a sunny day. Many fast food stalls, restaurants and small department stores around the entrance, so food is not a worry. Entrance fee is at 2000 per Adult. Really tiring 180m above sea level climb, but definitely worth the effort!
  • Beautiful place.. you can enjoy stunning views from the top.
  • The main attraction of Jeju. A great place and hike is reasonable. The view along the way is fantastic. The small town at the foot of the hill sells everything a tourist needs. After the hike, try the fresh hallabong juice for refreshment, it is a wonderful experience.
  • Good hiking place. Although i'm so tired to climb up to the top,i can enjoy the great view, very very very very great. Fresh atmosphere
