Visited this place in the evening after a day trip to Udo island, which is equally nice and probably less crowded compared to morning where most locals and tourists came to catch a glimpse of the sunrise.

Great view, easy to climb and a very nice place for some photos. Its best to climb it in the early morning before all the tour groups arrives.

Started our hike as early as 5.30 am because we took only less than 5 minutes to walk from the guesthouse we stayed. So lucky to be able to have a perfect spot to stand and sit to enjoy our sunrise even though the place was very crowded. The view was spectacular and definitely worth the effort of hiking up...

This would be my favourite place in Jeju. Evey single view is so beautiful. Too bad we went with a tour and did not have much time to explore around. We did climb up to the top though. We can easily spend half a day there. Suggest to give much time and go on your own instead of tour so... More

I was convinced by my friend to climb and see the unesco world heritage. I was disappointed to see nothing on top. it was so tiring a climb only to see a bare area. Really nothing on top.

The place is usually crowded. Make sure to wear good walking shoes to walk and climb, some drinking water to quench thirst along the way. Not suitable for elderly and people who are not keen in climbing. Otherwise, is worth to visit - it is a Unesco World Heritage site after all. If you are not there to catch sunrise,... More

Steep climb up the hill but the view worth every step. The stair halfway up is quite steep and a bit of a challenge if u have a bad knee. The best time to go is either for sunset or sunrise. There is only 1 shop to buy water up there. Make sure you have your water with you for... More

About 35 - 1hr hike to reach up the hill. The view at the top is amazing, it's worth to hike. Halfway through the hike there will be 1 pit stop if you would like to purchase any drink and some resting point. There are 2 points where you can U-turn if you feel that you are unable to complete... More

I definitely recommend this place altough it's popular among tourists. Anyway, the view on the top is absolutely amazing and for me walking on the top wasn't too hard. It was very windy but sunny day (and I burned my nose) so I recommend to remember the sun lotion! Or if it's cold and windy to wear warm clothes. On... More
