Seongsan Ilchulbong

We then decided to be able to hike up Seongsan Ilchuldong Peak 성산일출봉 early the next morning, to stay at a Motel in Seongsan 성산 where we paid ₩30 000 ($30) for a room for the night. Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak 성산일출봉 also called ‘Sunrise Peak’, is an archetypal tuff cone formed by hydro volcanic eruptions upon a shallow seabed about 5 thousand years ago and also a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site. We decided to walk from the Motel to the Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak 성산일출봉 and found a public Reflexology area, which was fun and very painful at the same time. Hiking the Peak was just breath taking, the scenery offers spectacular views from every point on the hiking path. It’s an easy hike up the Peak and so rewarding when you reach the top. At the bottom of Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, we had a stroll around Dong Am Sa Temple, where we saw a Buddha statue with babies pinching his nipples
