Hallasan National Park

Hallasan (Halla Mountain) rises up proudly from the center of Jeju Island and is perhaps one of the island's most memorable landmarks. Also called Mt. Yeongjusan, meaning 'mountain high enough to pull the galaxy,' Mt. Hallasan is widely acknowledged by scholars for its research value. Designated as a National Park in 1970, there are 368 parasitic mountains called 'Oreums' (peaks) around Halla Mountain.

SEONGSAN Sunrise Peak

The crater of Sunrise Peak consists of 99 rock peaks along its rim that look as if they are escorting the crater and forming a castle. For that reason, the basin was considered to be holy, and it was named "SEONGSAN" which literally means holy mountain. The view of the sunrise here is truly remarkable.

Jusangjeolli Cliff

If you follow the farm road 600 m to the southwest from Depo-dong, at the end of the pine tree forest is a cliff. At the base of this cliff is the Jisatgae Coast along with the imposing stone pillars. The Jusangjeolli are stone pillars piled up along the coast and is a designated cultural monument of Jejudo Island. The Jusangjeolli was formed when the lava from Mt.Hallasan erupted into the sea of Jungmun. They are rock pillars shaped like cubes or hexagons of various sizes and almost seem as if stonemasons had carved them out. The administration of the district named them 'Jisatgae Rocks' from their old name 'Jisatgae'. Its 20 m cliff makes it a popular spot for high tide, sea angling. The waves of the high tides crashing into the side of the cliff provide a breathtaking view of the ocean surrounding the pillars.

Jeju Folk Village Museum

With a total of 117 houses and facilities, Jeju Folk Village Museum has restored the scenes of the village to that of the 1890's. Among them are Mountain Village, Hill-Country Village, Fishing Village and Shamanism Village. On land of more than 40 acres it has been reconstructed following long-term research and analysis of experts. Some of the extensive range of folk items on display are 1,627 woodenware, 1,046 bamboo ware, 1,699 earthenware, 1,544 porcelain ware, 765 wax candles, 921 ironware and 579 other items. The Jeju Folk Village Museum is the island's main tourist attraction where customs of the old days can be explored.

JEONGBANG Waterfall

With SEOPSEOM and BEOMSEOM Island in front, the JEONGBANG Waterfall is right at the edge of the ocean. The JEJU people believed that a holy dragon lived under the waterfall. It has been said that since the water has its spirit, it has cured illnesses and caused rain to fall during a drought. In addition, there is another small waterfall nearby, looking like a servant waiting on a dignified lord. That's why it was chosen as one of the scenic wonders of JEJU among other big waterfalls in JEJU.
