  • Seongsan Ilchulbong is situated in the coast of Seongsan-ri, Seongsan-eup, Seogwipo-si, Jeju Special Self-Governing Province. It is a part of the volcano body that exploded under the sea, which rarely occurs among many craters surrounding the island.

The explosion brought about by the lava mixing with the water is crumbled into soft volcano ash and encircle the crater in a corn shape. It was originally a volcano island but connected to the land eventually by the sedimentary layers consisting of sand and rocks between the island and the land near the Sinyang beach. From the olden days, the scenary of sunrise viewed from Seongsan Ilchul Summit was the most excellent one among the famous ten scenic spots of Youngju (picturesque place of Jeju). The burning sun that rises far across the horizontal line above the swelling waves of the blue ocean captures the eyes of the viewer who observes the sight and renders one to let out a spontaneous exclamation by making a deep impression on the viewer. Seongsan Ilchulbong has its original shape of the craters well preserved and offers precious resources for the study of volcano as various structures of accumulation formed during the volcano explosion can be clearly observed. For this reason, it is proudly registered as the world heritage

This phenomenon is called maru in Korean, and Sangumburi is the only one of its kind in the country.

It's inner area covers 300,000 square meters and its bottom circumference is 756 meters while the length around the crater when measured outside is 2,070 meters. Rare species of plants and animals live inside the crater. Diverse trees such as cedar trees, Korean fir trees and eulalia inhabit the crater.

  • Sanbangsan Mountain is unmistakeable, even from a distance, and there are a number of interesting legends associated with it. The most interesting one is that of Seolmundae Halmang, the legendary creator of Jeju Island, and her sons, the 500 Generals. One day, the oldest of her sons went hunting and shot an arrow into the open air out of frustration at his continued failure.

Unfortunately, the arrow hit the Great Jade Emperor in his side, and the angry emperor pulled out a rock from the top of Hallasan Mountain and threw it. The place where the rock was pulled from became Baengnokdam Crater Lake and the thrown rock became Sanbangsan Mountain. The circumference of the crater in Baengnokdam Crater Lake is actually the same as that of Sanbangsan Mountain, and they are both formed of the same type of rock.

Mid-way to the top of the bell-shaped Sanbangsan Mountain is Sanbanggul (Sanbang Cave), in which is a statue of Buddha. The water that drops from the roof of the cave is said to have medicinal properties.

To reach the summit of Sanbangsan Mountain, take the path that leads to Yonghaedong in Deoksuri, at the back of the path leading to Sanbanggul.

  • The columnar joints in the Jungmun Tourism Complex were designated as Natural Monument #433 on December 27, 2004. They look like a large folding screen with black hexagon stone pillars. When you visit here and look at the columnar joints with beautiful ocean waves crashing against them,

you will be mesmerized by nature's greatness. Columnar jointing is a pillar shaped (tetragonal~hexagonal) appeared in basaltic lava flow. When thick lava (at about 1,100 degrees Celsius) flows from the mouth of a volcano and cools down drastically, columnar joints are created. The columnar joints here are 30~40m in height and extend for about 1km, the largest such structure in Korea.
