The wind was so strong that we can hardly move forward. But was only for certain section of the it. Once we go thro that, and reach the peak, it worth every effort to fight against the wind.

I love it being a tuff cone and all (even if I'm not that into geology). It's also a UNESCO World Heritage site. They say it's best to climb to the peak during sunrise (hence, the... More

This one amazing place is a must in Jeju! We were not able to go early but I think the best time is sunrise, since it is called the "Sunrise Peak" in english.

People say you should visit it as the sunrise. Too bad I was a bit late so I couldn't see the amazing view. But still even if you go later the view is amazing. If you go to the top of seongsan ilchilbong you could see the city by the sea. It's a bit tiring to go up coz there's... More

Picturesque place with the view of Seogwipo at the peak. You need a good walking shoes to explore the place especially climbing the stairs going to the peak.

Must visit place in Jeju, it is very beautiful, view is spectacular from the top. There are stairs so it is easier to climb. Give yourself 3-4 hours to explore everything.

Visited this place in the evening after a day trip to Udo island, which is equally nice and probably less crowded compared to morning where most locals and tourists came to catch a glimpse of the sunrise.
