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.

  • It began in the afternoon to enter the ticket window, and it took a little time to get back. The crater on the mountain is victorious, and the landscape of the town during the mountaineering is overwhelmed. A lot of visitors.

  • Absolutely beautiful place. It is different from any regular hike due to the volcanic mountain shape. Park your car at the parking lot at the bottom, the hike from there to the top is 30 min up and 30 down. It is an easy hike were I have seen many children and elderly people do it with ease. Entrance fee is 2,000 per adult which is totally worth it.
  • It is an amazing natural place to visit. It is worth to go before the sunset, it is not so crowded and the views are beautiful. I would advise for you to go comfortable and ready to climb many stairs, at the beginning it can seem long and tough but in the end all the exercise is worth it. If you went without having breakfast, don't worry there are several cafeterias options before the entrance to the park.
