Jusangjeollidae & Oedolgae

Jeju-Jusangjeollidae-1JUSANGJEOLLIDAE is located near Jungmun beach, a popular place for tourists and locals in Seogwipo, the south part of Jeju. The pillar rock formation you can see here looks like a piece of art and is really impressive ! An absolutely must see at Jeju !

The hexogonal basaltic pillars rising up from the ocean are the result of a sudden contraction of thick molten lava when it leaves the volcano and cools off very fast.

The total length of JUSANGJEOLLI cliff is about 1 km and the height of the cliffs is between 30 and 40 meters. It is the largest formation of this kind in Korea and therefore designated as a Nature wonder nr. 443.

There’ s a path made of wooden stairs so tourists can watch the cliff closely.
When the tide is high the waves can leap up to 20 meters high !

Not far from Jusangjeollidae you can also visit Oedolgae rock. This spectacular rock, 20 meters in height, was used as a filming location for the famous Korean drama “Daejanggeum”.
Many tourists visit this place to watch sunset at Bum Island, in the back of Oedolgae rock.
