    60mins Trekking – Manjanggul Cave is one of the finest lava tunnels in the world and is a designated natural monument. A lava tunnel is formed when the lava that was deep in the ground spouts from the peak and flows to the surface. Manjanggul Cave has a variety of interesting structures inside including 70cm lava stalagmites and the lava tube tunnels.Only 1km of the 13,422m Manjanggul Cave is open to tourists. The inside of the tunnel sustains a temperature of 11~21℃, creating a comfortable atmosphere. There are rare animals such as bats living in the tunnel, which makes this tunnel valuable for researchers as well. The stone pillars and stalactites are widely spread and the tunnels show off the cave’s topographical features. “Stone Turtle” is especially eye-catching because it is shaped like Jeju-do Island.

    ※ When Manjang cave is closed on the first Wednesday of every month, it will be replaced to Gimnyeong maze park.
    ※ When it’s raining, Manjang cave will be replaced to Gimnyeong maze park due to safety reason.


    Make your way to Woljeongri beach, you can sit in a nice local cafe and enjoy picturesque landscapes enjoying coffee. The emerald color ocean with a breeze will refresh you.

    Haenyeo refers to female divers who dive into the ocean water to gather various shellfish, seaweed, etc, without using any underwater diving equipment. When diving underwater, a haenyeo carries only a pair of goggles, a round ball-like tube to keep her balance, and a basket to put her collections in. Such women involved in the fishing industry are known to be scattered all around Jeju-do, Korea, Japan, and Russia.

    Jeju-do has established the Jeju Haenyeo Museum to introduce to the world the unique activities and culture of Jejudo’s haenyeo female divers. Exhibition Hall 1 is entitled “Haenyeo Diver’s Life” and has a restoration of a traditional haenyeo’s home and her meals. Also on display, to show a more realistic view into their daily lives, are the various utensils used by female divers.

    ※ When Woman diver museum is closed on the first and third Wednesday of every month, it will be replaced to Gimnyeong maze park.


    On Manjang Cave’s holiday or rainy day

    Gimnyeong Maze Park contains a maze that has various images incorporated in it. The maze is in the shape of the Jeju Island, and its images that can be clearly seen from above include the following: a serpent, which was an object of worship on the island until the mid-70s; horses of Jeju Island, which were brought there by Mongolians as far back as 1276; the ship, Sparrowhawk, that was shipwrecked on the island in 1653 bringing Hendrick Hamel and his company of Dutch sailors to the Joseon Kingdom; and dolmens that are relics from the Bronze Age. All of these images are famous symbols or landmarks of Jeju Island.

    There are three skywalks and an observatory, which are popular photo sites for tourists. They offer panoramic views of the entire maze. There are four ways to get through the maze from the entrance. If you use a map, it will take only 5 minutes, but without a map it’s a bit more difficult and can take up to 20 minutes. Some visitors have been known to spend up to 50 minutes lost in the maze before giving up and calling for help!

    ※ Woman diver performance show could be canceled according to the weather conditions. 

    60mins Trekking – 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 canola flowers in the spring is truly a sight to behold.

    Jeju’s Herb Dongsan farm is a sensual delight to visit. Located just outside of Pyoseon in the southeast of Jeju, it is a great place to be naturally rejuvenated. The herb gardens are home to around 180 different varieties of herbs and a stroll through them is a magical feast for the senses. Herb Dongsan offers a great day out to enjoy nature and explore the cleverly laid out gardens.

    A maze garden near the entrance greets visitors with a mixture of herbs and flowers. From here gardens branch out in every direction each with different themes. Most plants are labeled though usually with their Korean and scientific names. There are many different varieties of gardens to enjoy and many surprises tucked along the little pathways so make sure to explore all the gardens.

    For visitors of Herb Dongsan, the aroma foot spa is a must try experience. It is really good to soothe the tired feet of travelers. A golden foot bath is filled with hot water. Bath preparations are different every week. Normally, products with rose, which is good for skin regeneration and anti-aging, or rosemary, which is good for antibacterial effect and muscle relaxation, are used. A few drops of undiluted extract of peppermint are added to water at the proper temperature as not to destroy the healthful ingredients of herbs. Five minutes after taking a peaceful rest while dipping your feet in the foot bath, you can feel the heat coming from the feet, and your whole body gets warmer. After the foot spa, you can scrub your feet with sweet-scented rose salt to exfoliate.

    In the meantime, a therapist will apply peppermint oil on the back of your neck. Cool and refreshing peppermint oil is helpful to ease headaches and loosen knotted muscles. Lastly, rosemary mist is sprayed to the face. It feels like even smelling the fragrance alone heals the mind. The 20-minute foot spa program finishes pleasantly with rosemary mist.

    seongeup-folk-village
    The Seongeup Folk Village shows the unique culture of Jeju Island: the black lava rock walls, the straight but curvy alleys to block the wind, and the stone grandfather statues (Harubang), which have become a prime feature of the landscape. The local black-haired pigs and tongsi (pigsty/restroom) are especially well-known characteristics of Jeju folk culture. The Jeju black pork is said to be very nutritious.


    After finishing the tour, our driver will send you back to the hotel. Tour will end around 18:00.

    Me and friends were really having a great time with JY Onnie our local tour guide during the day tour to East Jeju. She speaks english, showed us around Jeju and help us took pictures. The tour price is affordable, the van is comfortable and the places we visited were really great with awesome view. Might want to join this tour again next time .

    So far so good

    We had a very flexible and relaxing tour. Our guide, Jin is very friendly and also flexible. We made some changes along the way to our destinations and he did not hesitate to take us there and also spent extra time after our day ended to take us to the places we wanted to go to. Jin gives great recommendations to restaurants. We enjoyed a great local abalone, uni, clam rice for lunch and a very good noodle place for dinner.

    It would be better if there're more explanations about the destinations we went to and if there are any real / made up stories for the particular site.

    I loved this tour. It was a little fast pace but that's what the van is for. Jin was fantastic! He made it fun and entertaining. He was very knowledgeable, and actually he is CEO of this company! I didn't think I would like Jeju island as much as I did. We stopped off at the lookout at night to get a picture of the Yongyeon bridge. I think the highlight of the trip was Seongsan sunrise peak. It is breathtaking!! When do you ever get to do that in your lifetime? Thank you very much, Core Travel

    I expected that our car is a van, but was a sedan. It was a bit small for our family, 3people. I didn't check the condition well,,, :(

    This trip was a nice mixture of nature, entertainment, food, and having a great time. The tours and excursions were varied and it certainly have you a balanced experience of Jeju island. I don't see how we could have made any more use of the time without becoming rushed. Hank was extremely competent and knowledgeable. He managed to keep us all happy no matter how "particular" a guest was. He was always full of life with smile&big teeth. His attention to detail and clear explanations helped tremendously. Great group of mixed ages helped too!

    :)
