Seongsan Ilchulbong, Seogwipo

4.6
Rising from the ocean like a rocky crown, the World Heritage Site of Seongsan Ilchulbong stands as a testament to the region's ancient volcanic activity. Formed nearly 5,000 years ago by an eruption, the formation, known as a "tuff cone," features sheer walls with a depressed center. Hike your way up to the top of the raised crater, which stands 180 m (591 ft) high and has a diameter of nearly 600 m (1,969 ft), and look out over the rugged interior. You'll also get to enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding ocean and coastline from the rim.

  • This place has a magnificient view of sunset and it is definitely an instaworthy place for those who love nature. We took our time to climb uphill, stopping at various points to snap photos...  more »
  • We need to rent a car (包車)to get there. The driver said walking up there requiring 30 min, yet is quite easy to arrive the top. After reaching the top, you could enjoy the sunset of the seongsan city....  more »

  • You come here when you are on the way to the harbor. Large parking lot and many cafes right there. Admission costs 5000, for children 2500. You can walk relaxed and enjoy the view.
  • Unfortunately on the day I visited Seongsan Ilchulbong the main trails were closed as the trails are closed on the 1st Monday of every month - wishes I knew this beforehand. Regardless, you can still walk up to the view point (very short walk). The views are stunning, although I would imagine it’ll be nicer at the peak.
