Manjanggul Lava Tubes
Explore the Manjanggul lava tubes, cited as the finest such volcanic cave system in the world, and designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
A sprawling, inactive volcano which forms the bulk of Jeju Island, Mount Halla is the highest mountain in South Korea. Ascend part or all of the 6,400 foot peak of Mount Halla and hike the various trails (ranging from 0.5 to 5 miles in length).
Sunrise Peak Tuff Cone
Embark on a dawn ascent of Seongsan Ilchulbong, or “Sunrise Peak,” the dramatic inactive volcanic crater rising out of the ocean off Seongsan. This amazing tuff cone was formed 5000 years ago by hydrovolcanic eruptions upon a shallow seabed.
