Hallasan National Park (Halla Mountain National Park)

 Mt.Hallasan stands tall in the middle of Jeju Island. It is also called Mt.Yeongjusan, meaning a mountain high enough to pull the galaxy. Mt.Hallasan is widely acknowledged by scholars for its research values. Designated as a National Park in 1970, there are 368 parasitic mountains called “Ohreum (peaks)” around Mt. Hallasan.

 From its warm climate to the cooler areas, Mt.Hallasan is famous for its vertical ecosystem of plants. Over 1,800 kinds of plants and 4,000 species of animals (3,300 species of insects) are known to exist here, and due to the well-developed climbing course, you can carefully observe the surroundings.

 Mt.Hallasan is a short climbing course. Less than 10km in length, it is possible to reach the peak and come back down in one day. But the weather conditions often change and there is a lot of wind, so you must be well prepared before going up the mountains.

Seopjikoji Coast

 Seopjikoji is located at the end of the eastern shore of Jeju-do Island. “Seopji” is the old name for the area, and “Koji” is Jeju dialect meaning a sudden bump on land.

 Green fields without a single tree spread beyond the cliff to where a rock called “seondol” protrudes. Also there are stonewalls along the road to block the wind on the way to the lighthouse at the end of Seopjikoji. Within the stonewalls, you may find the most brilliant rapeseed flower fields every April.

 Going up the metal steps of the lighthouse, you can view the whole seashore at a glance. On Koji hill, there stands a stone Bongsudae (4 m high, 9 m long and wide) that retains its original form.

 The area’s beauty comes into full glory in the spring when the bright yellow canola flowers bloom in the fields, standing out in stark contrast to the rich blue background of the ocean. From Seopjikoji Coast (섭지코지), visitors can look out across the ocean and get a gorgeous view of Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, which seems to be almost rising out of the field of flowers.

Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak

 Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak rose from under the sea in a volcanic eruption over 100,000 years ago. Located on the eastern end of Jejudo Island, there is a huge crater at the top of Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak. The crater is about 600m in diameter and 90m high. With the 99 sharp rocks surrounding the crater, it looks like a gigantic crown.

 While the southeast and north sides are cliffs, the northwest side is a verdant grassy hill that is connected to the Seongsan Village. The ridge provides an ideal spot for walks and for horse riding as well.
 

 The sunrise from the crater is magnificent. Also the Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak surrounded by bright yellow colored rapeseed flowers in the spring is truly a sight to behold.

 Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak (성산일출봉) is truly a sight to behold. Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak is famous not only as a geological wonder, but is also one of the best places in Korea to watch the sunrise, earning it the name “Sunrise Peak.”
