Korea Day 2 (Seongsan Ilchubong Peak aka Sunrise Peak In Jeju Island)

by - 10:22 PM

'Seongsan Ilchubong Peak' aka 'Sunrise Peak' rose from under the sea in a volcanic eruption over 100,000 years ago hence the HUGE crater on top of 'Seongsan Ilchubong Peak'... The crater itself was about 600m in diameter and 90m high!!!


Presenting the legendary 'Seongsan Ilchubong Peak'



'Seongsan Ilchubong Peak'... Famous for sunrise sighting but unfortunately, we were unable to watch it...


Explaining about the crater but none of us can understand!!!


Abundance volcanic rocks in Jeju Island... So it was wise to use it for wall building...


Wow... Just looked at all the tourists...



We decided not to climb all the way up due to limited time... So too bad, we can't enjoy the full glory of the magnificent crater... Nonetheless we do enjoyed ourselves because the surrounding view was really breathtaking!!!



Ok... Before showing you all the scenic pictures, first enjoy my darling's self portrait...




Wow... Actually I'm in this picture as well... Notice the shadow??? That's me!!!





ENJOY THE SCENERY!!!













I like this picture a lot... I call it 'The Lonely Photographer'...



Anyone care to translate???




Noticed the house in the picture??? Inside the house lives the 'Haenyeo' which stands for 'Sea Women'... The 'Haenyeo' were female divers which was very famous in Jeju Island... Most of them middle-aged or older goes out on a boat every morning to dive for seafood or seaweed... You can actually buy the seafood from them but according to our tour guide, it was kinda pricey...


What a nice place to live in!!!



To be continue...
