Suweolbong Tuff Ring


Suweolbong is a low-relief mount of pyroclastic deposit located at the western margin of Jeju Island. The mount represents the partly preserved rim beds of a tuff ring, whose vent lies several hundred meters seaward of the present shoreline.

Sanbangsan Lava Dome and Yongmeori Tuff Ring


Sanbangsan is a gigantic lava dome located in the southwestern margin of Jeju Island, rising 396m above sea level. And Yongmeori, meaning 'dragonhead', tuff ring consists of three stratal packages that are bounded by a large turncation surface or an extensive erosion surface

Biyang Island and Hyupjae Beach


There are two cinder cones around Biyang bong in the center of the island and the part of disappeared cinder cone is remained in the northwest seashore of the island. And Hyupjae Beach is consist of shell sand.

Columnar Joints at Jungmun


The best exposures of columnar-jointed lavas in Jeju Island are found along the coast of Daepodong where dark gray trachybasalt lava crops out for about 3 km.

Seogwipo Formation


The 40m thick exposure of the formaiton is composed of mainly basaltic volcaniclastic rocks and subordinate amounts of non-volcanic sedimentary layers.

Cheonjeyeon Waterfall


Cheonjeyeon Waterfall meaning of Pond of the Emperor of Heaven  consists of a three-tier waterfall. In first cascade, the cliff is 22 m high and the water falls into Cheonjeyeon pond which is 21 m deep. From there, the water goes to the second waterfall and falls 30 m and continues to the third waterfall. Eventually, the water reaches the ocean.  Rare plants such as the solipnan plants or skeleton fork fern can be found around the falls in the crevices of rocks.

Seongsan Ilchunlbong Tuff Cone


Seongsan IIchulbong, also called 'Sunrise Peak', is an archetypal tuff cone, 179 m high, dominating the eastern seaboard of Jeju Island like a gigantic ancient castle. The tuff cone was produced by a hydrovolcanic eruotion upon a shallow seabed about 5 thousand years ago when the sea level was identical to that of the present.
