TO THE TOP OF SEONGSAN ILCHULBONG

성산일출봉 Jeju. South Korea.

#Seongsan #Ilchulbong, also called ‘Sunrise Peak’, is an archetypal tuff cone formed by hydrovolcanic eruptions upon a shallow seabed about 5 thousand years ago. At first we wanted to see sunrise here, but because this place is far from our hotel we decided to visit Seongsan at the evening. #seewhatisee

There are numerous hydromagmatic volcanoes similar to the Seongsan Ilchulbong, but there are no other known hydromagmatic volcanoes with a well-preserved tuff cone and diverse internal structures along a sea cliff. Because of these scientific values and remarkable scenery, Seongsan Ilchulbong Tuff Cone was able to be designated as a #UNESCO World Natural Heritage site and it is worth preserving permanently as a natural heritage of humankind.

I love the mood of this place.
