This spot is one of the UNESCO Heritage places, however to enjoy its beauty you’d need to visit it on a sunny day. Unlikely, it was raining heavily and was foggy when I was there. Despite that, I enjoyed the trip and the place itself, besides it was fo free if you walk around. (you’d only pay for the entrance if you want to go up to the extinct volcano crater). Landscape was amazing and loked kind of alien. Eventually, I found this spot beautiful in any weather conditions.
Ilchubong is a very special attraction due to its natural formation and history. The sight is easy accesible and has lots of shops and food places around. It is a pleasant hike that's easy accesible as it is not a difficult track. There are stunning views during the hike and interesting information about the site.
This is also called Sunrise Peak. It is a crater with views from the overlook at the top edge of the crater, and a paved stairway/walkway up to the crater’s edge. My 4yo twins were able to hike up the trail to the top! The view was amazing at the summit! You can see the scenic coastline. I recommend to catch the 1pm haenyo or women divers’ show at the bottom (the left side trail) then go up the mountain. Amazing!
At the beginning of the winter of November 2016, one of the most favorite scenic spots on Jeju Island was on the 3rd of Jeju Island. Although I don't see Hainu, it's a little pity. But maybe it's better to have regrets. Tickets are cheap and not necessary. Especially group tickets. Comparing the ticket prices of the Great Dynasty, I don't mention it. Chengshan is actually not too high, for our Mount Taishan and Mount Huangshan. But people who haven't been exercising for a long time are still tired of climbing. It was a beautiful journey. Seascape, mountain view, grassland. Eyes always have beautiful scenery, so tired also feel very worthwhile. Looking at the past from different angles, the scenery has its own merits. It was cloudy at the beginning of the climb, but it didn't take long for the climb to clear up. Good character. The grassland season is not right. It's yellowing a little. Only a few horses were grazing. It would have been better if it had been greener earlier. Climbing to the top of the hill and looking down, you can feel relaxed and happy. The wind was strong, so Hainu did not go to sea. No chance to see. There is no food for sale in the Chengshan scenic area. There are many cafes, hamburgers and seafood shops near the entrance of the scenic spot.
Pat the journey with your hands Korea Travel @ Korea Tourism Development Bureau Weibo @ Sina Travel climbed the Sunrise Peak of Chengshan Mountain, known as the first view of Yingzhou, early this morning, with white waves blowing the mountain breeze, waiting quietly for the arrival of the sunrise at sea. Chengshan Sunrise Peak is the easternmost mountain-sea junction of Jeju, half of the sea and half of the land. The sun gradually rises, standing on the top of the mountain overlooking the colorful vegetation and the relics of volcanic eruption, as well as the beautiful scenery of Jeju in the distance. At the foot of the hill there is a riding ground where you can ride around. From the top of the hill down to the coast, you can also see the seamaid performance in sunny weather. You can eat a delicious fresh salvaged meal, abalone, sea cucumber, octopus, conch, everything.
Chengshan Sunrise Peak is 182 meters above sea level. This is the easternmost part of Jezhou Island. It is 100,000 years ago, one of the many volcanic craters in Jezhou Island erupted from the sea. On the top of the volcanic body, there is a shapot-shaped crater with a diameter of 600 meters and a depth of 90 meters. The sunrise landscape seen from the top of Chengshan Sunrise Peak has been known as the first scene in the "Ten Landscapes of Yingzhou" since ancient times, because it is only very visible at weekends. Many Korean natives struggle along the trail to climb to the top of the mountain, but the more spectacular the climb to the mountainside, the more magnificent the view overlooks the harbor and hinterland. The magnificent Hannah Mountains stand in the distance from the clouds. After the small volcanoes wave toward it and climb to the top, 99 steep stones surround the crater like a huge crown green. The pride of the plant spreading on the sandbowl-shaped crater mountain is beyond description, because the sun is not strong and the breeze is cool and the pride of conquering the sunrise peak can not be described by pen and ink.
This is what I think is the best scenic spot in Jeju Island, none of them. It's really beautiful. The Sunrise Peak of Chengshan is a small volcano. If you climb to the top, you can see the crater. I heard that this is one of the most beautiful places to see the sunrise. I totally agree with you with both hands. On the east side of the mountain is a big rock near the sea. There are a few older aunts there. They are actually seagirls. They go to sea specially without any diving equipment to salvage seafood for sale. It's said that few people have done this kind of job nowadays. Now only Jeju Island and Hokkaido still have Hainu. In another 20 years, Hainu will disappear. It's a pity. That's the real Hainu's daughter.
Chengshan Sunrise Peak is also one of the most worthwhile natural scenic spots in Jezhou Island. Bus passes through the airport or Xiguipu. Buses of 600, 701 and 701-1 can walk for five minutes to the ticket office at the bus platform. The transportation is convenient. It takes only 40 or 50 minutes to climb to the top of the mountain. The beautiful scenery of the island and the ingenious spirit of nature can be fully appreciated. ! You can also overlook Niu Dao, you can see the nearby Chengshan wharf port, the ticket 2000 won is very cheap, there are horse riding projects at your own expense, there are speedboats to ride behind the sunrise peak to see the back of the peak, because hiking only develops the route before the peak, the whole sunrise peak scenic area is not large, up and down and back only takes two hours!
Chengshan Sunrise Peak is also the natural heritage left by volcanic eruption hundreds of years ago. The scenery is very good. It feels that the whole Jezhou Island relies on various relics left by volcanic eruption as scenic spots, which are different. Ticket 2000 won, the tourist attraction of Jeju Island is not too expensive, climbing to the top of the mountain is more than 300 meters, half an hour, after going up, you can see the whole east coast of Jeju Island. It's too late to go to the sun, early to see the sunrise, think it's beautiful! There are seagirls on the east side of the scenic spot. Unfortunately, we haven't seen them. We can also do yacht cruises. In short, they must go to the scenic spots.
Jeju Island is one of the most important scenic spots in the world. It is really beautiful and has a great artistic conception. There are a lot of people, besides Chinese tourists, Korean locals also go there. In fact, if the physical strength is good, it's a pity to climb to the top and overlook the beautiful scenery of the whole Jeju Island. The whole is not high. A quick round trip of one hour is enough. If you can't crawl, you can harass along the seaside. No, it's very narrow-minded. At the bottom, there should be Korean aunts wearing Haim women's clothes selling seafood, which are eaten by Chinese tourists, all raw, with cooking inside. The food is all Chinese tourists, I suggest you do not eat, these seafood are not thanks to the ladies wearing shoes and sea clothes fishing, are from other places to transport goods past, they sell very expensive, a small abalone selling 10,000 won, sincerely not worth it, do not be deceived.
