FD tour of Jeju Island (Jusangjeollo & Seongsan)


| May 15, 2020

The volcanic island of Jeju is home to some varied and dramatic landscapes. The Jusangjeolli cliffs are a series of stone columns set in the cliff face, formed when the lava from Mount Halla erupted into the sea of Jungmun and created these cubic and hexagonal rocks of various sizes that seem to have been carved out by stone masons. Nearby, the Jeongbang waterfall cascades directly into the ocean from a towering cliff face. Songsan Sunrise Peak has a huge volcanic crater, surrounded by trails lined with an array of plants, which range from subtropical to alpine. From the western edge of the crater there are spectacular views across the countryside. Manjanggul cave has a lava tunnel that was formed by lava flowing from deep in the ground up to the surface. One kilometre of the tunnel is open to visitors, where various stalagmites and stalactites can be seen.
