Jeju is a volcanic island located 130 kilometers from the southern coast of the Korean Peninsula, and is the main island of Jeju Province of South Korea. Covering an area of about 1,848 square kilometers, the island contains the natural World Heritage Site Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes (UNESCO).
A central feature of Jeju is Mt. Halla, the tallest mountain in South Korea and a dormant volcano. Rising 1,950 meters from the sea level, with varying temperatures year around, Mt. Halla houses over 1,800 plant species and 4,000 animal species which account for 3,300 species of insects. On top of the volcano, Baengnokdam, a crater lake which was formed over 25,000 years ago, is considered by the natives as the holiest place in Jeju.
Sunrise Peak (Seongsan Ilchulbong)
Sunrise Peak is an archetypal tuff cone rising from seabed in a volcanic eruption. Situated in the eastern end of Jeju, this tuff cone has a huge bowl-like crater at the top. With sharp rocks surrounding the crater, it looks like a gigantic crown. The sunrise from the crater is magnificent. The northwest side is a verdant grassy hill that provides an ideal spot for walks and for horse riding.
Sites for Korean Drama
It is also another fun to visit many filming sites for Korean dramas, such as Oedolgae for “Dae Jang Geum” and Seopjikoji for “All-in”.
Jeju is scientifically valuable for its extensive system of lava tube. These natural conduits through which magma once flowed are now empty caves that are some of the largest in the world. Although these lava tubes are extremely large and ancient, the internal morphological features are well-preserved and the inner scenery is considered to be outstanding.
