There’s a hundred-meter section on 1100 Road where things roll upward. This road became known to the world in 1981 when a couple on honeymoon got out of their car for photo taking while placing their car gears in neutral and witnessed it rolling upward. This road actually has 3-degree downward slant but the surrounding terrain makes it look like an upward slant.
60mins Trekking – Hallasan Mountain stands proudly at the center of Jeju Island and is perhaps the island’s most memorable landmark. Also called Mt. Yeongjusan, meaning “mountain high enough to pull the galaxy,” Hallasan Mountain is widely known by scientists for its geological value. It was designated as the national park in 1970, UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2002, UNESCO World Heritage in 2007, and UNESCO Geopark in 2010.
Eoseungsaengak rises 1,169m above sea level. It takes approximately 30 minutes to climb to the top along its 1.3 km long trail.
You can enjoy the amazing view of Jeju city on the front side and Submit of Mt.Halla at behind.
※ When the road is closed due to heavy rain, heavy snow or icy road, it will be replaced by visiting Mountain Songak.
Songaksan Mountain is also called 99 Bong (99 Peaks) due to its 99 small peaks. The road from Sanbanggulsa Temple in Southern Jeju to Songaksan Mountain is a famous coastal drive with breathtaking scenic views. Though not as enormous as Hallasan Mountain, the view from the peak of Songaksan is truly scenic. From the summit, one can see nearby islands such as Marado, Gapado, and Hyeongjeseom, and as far as Hallasan Mountain and the Pacific Ocean.
Lunch menu – Jeju local pork noodle or vegetable noodle
Following the farm road about 600m to the southwest from Daepo-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. Jusangjeolli is stone pillars piled up along the coast and is a designated cultural monument of Jeju Island. Jusangjeolli Cliff was formed when the lava from Hallasan Mountain 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’. The 20m cliff makes it a popular spot for high tide and sea angling. The waves of the high tide crashing into the side of the cliff provide a breathtaking view of the ocean surrounding the pillars.
The architectural style of Yakcheonsa Temple is reminiscent of that of Buddhist temples of the early Joseon Dynasty. Measuring an impressive 30m high and spanning a total area of 3,305 meters squared, it is the largest temple in the East. Upon entering Yakcheonsa Temple, guests will be greeted by a 5m-tall statue of Vairocana, the tallest of such statues in Korea, on a 4m high pedestal. The walls on both the right and left have been sculpted into large altar portraits of Buddha and in front of the Dharma Hall is a giant Buddhist temple bell, weighing 18 tons. Beloved for its size and grandeur, the temple consists of the main temple (2,652 meters squared) and a 3-story residential structure for the Buddhist monks.
Jeju Island biosphere reserve is located at the center of the island, comprising its core area; Mt. Halla National Park, two stream corridors and three islets including Beomseom, Munseom and Seopseom. Beopwhan-dong area has a beautiful coastline which is part of Olle Trail Course no.7 with a view of Beomseom, Munseom and Seopseom Islets. Beomseom Islet got its name from its shape like a big tiger sitting down (“Beom” means a tiger in Korean.) It has two caves. Legend says that the goddess Seolmundae Halmang, the creator of Jejudo Island, made those caves when she stretched her legs lying down using Hallasan Mountain as a pillow. Munseom Islet is a natural habitat of soft coral colonies that possess a beauty that awes divers. Corals only grow in places that are rich in plankton and where nothing floats on water. Munseom provides a perfect habitat for corals because the sunlight reaches 40m deep into the water. Seopseom Islet is full of evergreen trees and a repository of plants where 180 species of plants grow. It is famous as a natural habitat for Spleenwort, which is designated as a Natural Monument. It also has rich fishery resources, making it a famous fishing spot.
Oedolgae Sea Stack sits not far from the shores of Sammaebong Peak in Seogwipo. It is an amazing rock 20 meters in height and is estimated to have formed approximately 1.5 million years ago. The fantastic rocks of the coastal cliff around Oedolgae and Sammaebong Peak provide the perfect background for trekking. The sunset of Beomseom Island, which can be seen from Oedolgae Sea Stack, has long been an admired view for people visiting Jeju Island.
The water at Cheonjiyeon Falls, meaning “sky connected with land,” appears to fall from the heavens, giving the falls its name. Apart from the wild Dampalsu trees, designated as Natural Monument No. 163, the wooded area also contains a great variety of rare plants such as brambles, Songyeopnan as well as Gusiljappam trees, Sanyuja trees (Chinese lemon trees), and camellias which all make up a forest specified as Natural Monument No. 379. Take a walk along the subtropical path towards the Cheonjiyeon Falls for a kilometer and you will be able to hear the magnificent sound of the water falling. The waterfall is 22m high, 12m wide and 20m in depth. The clear and deep water of Cheonjiyeon Falls is designated as Natural Monument No. 27 and is renowned as a habitat for Mutae eels (Natural Monument No. 258).
