Descripción

Sunrise Peak also called ‘Seongsan Ilchulbong, rose from under the sea in a volcanic eruption over 100,000 years ago. Located on the eastern end of Jejudo Island, there is a huge crater at the top of Sunrise Peak. The crater is about 600m in diameter and 90m high. With the 99 sharp rocks surrounding the crater, it looks like a gigantic crown. While the southeast and north sides are cliffs, the northwest side is a verdant grassy hill that is connected to the Sunrise Village. The ridge provides an ideal spot for walks and for horse riding as well. 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. Seopjikoji is located at the east coast of Jeju Special Self-Governing Province, is a beautiful coastline filled with canola flowers during the spring, with Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak rising up in the background. You can find Sinyang Sandy Beach at the entrance, while the end will let you see the traditional beauties of Jeju, such as a vast land filled with canola flowers growing on the hill, Jeju donkies grazing peacefully, beautiful rock cliffs, and the legendary Seonbawi Rock standing in the middle of the ocean. What makes Seopjikoji different from other coasts in Jejudo Island is that it is made of red volcanic ash called “scoria”, and possesses strange rock formations that only show themselves when the tide is low are very unique. Filming Site for Movies and Dramas: The Legend of Gingko, The Uprising, Cheonilya, and All In. The picturesque blue house at the sea where Choi Jin-sil lived in in the movie The Legend of Gingko was based on this site. Furthermore, Hyeopja Beacon Fire Station can be found in Seopjikoji, which became famous for being the filming site of the TV drama ?All In? in 2003. As such, there is no shortage of tourists who seek this place out.



Lo que vamos a ver
  • Cráter Seongsan Ilchulbong
  • Vistas sublimes desde lo alto de la colina
  • Playa de Sinyang y promontorio de Seopjikoji


Lo que haremos
  • Abandonamos el puerto y nos dirigimos al extremo oriental de la isla, donde se alza el cráter Seongsan Ilchulbong, o Sunrise Park, un cono de toba formado a raíz de una erupción hidrovolcánica, unido al resto de la isla por un istmo, y declarado Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO por su alto valor paisajístico y científico.
  • Subiendo por una colina empinada, recorremos un sendero que conduce al extremo occidental del cráter. Un panorama espectacular recompensa nuestra escalada: observamos el lecho del cráter cubierto de vegetación de color esmeralda y rodeado de 99 pináculos rocosos que lo asemejan a una corona. Al fondo, el mar infinito y detrás de nosotros el resto de la isla con la localidad de Seongsanpo a los pies del cráter.
  • Nos desplazamos al extremo opuesto de la bahía para visitar el promontorio de Seopjikoji, un espléndido tramo de costa que en primavera se cubre de flores amarillas de colza.
  • A los pies del promontorio, admiramos la playa de Sinyang, un arco de arena fina y dorada bañada por un mar azul que se degrada suavemente, un destino todavía poco turístico y por lo tanto relativamente virgen.
  • Adentrándonos en el promontorio, disfrutamos de unas vistas panorámicas características de la isla de Jeju; amplias extensiones de flores amarillas, burros que pastan hierba, sugerentes y erectas formaciones rocosas que sobresalen del agua cuando baja la marea.
  • Al final del tour, volveremos al puerto cruzando de nuevo la isla con sus variados paisajes.
