Jeju Island is the largest island of South Korea. It is also one of the nine provinces of the country and the smallest of all of them. It was formed as a result of a volcanic eruption. Situated to the south in the subtropical belt. That means its flora and climate is quite different from the rest of Korea.
The Seongsan Sunrise Peak, known commonly as Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, is an enormous “Tuff Cone” that was formed by a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago. The peak contains 99 sharp rocks that form around the edge of the crater.
In 2007, the whole volcanic island itself, as well as the famous lava tubes within its caves, were added on the World Natural Heritage list.
