We wanted to catch the sunrise there but the sun was blocked by the clouds. It was a little disappointing as we climbed up when it was dark (cant see much scenery) and we had to descend without seeing the sunrise. It was nice to see the view from the top though!

We were staying in Jungmun so it was a long drive to the peak. It was a rainy day so the steps were slippery. I made it up half way but turned back when the rain came. It was not a very difficult climb as there are steps and signs to guide you. I saw the older local people climbing... More

The view was amazing even if you did not make it up to the top. From halfway point onwards, you could see the awesome seaview. We went in the afternoon so that we could catch the divers' performance at 3pm. What impressed me the most about the performance was that the Ajumma actually went into the cold waters in winter!...

Beautiful landscape where we can see ocean from the hill. Transport from Jeju city to here could use taxi, tour or bus. I use bus from Jeju Intercity terminal. Using bus no 701 and went back with bus no. 710-1.

We took bus no 100 from seogwipo city to the last bus stop. Walk up the road to the next bus stop and got on the intercity bus no 701. Got off at the beach overlooking seongsan illchubong. Plenty of spots for great pics here. Walked all the way to the entrance and up. Manageable. Highly recommend wearing good comfortable... More

It is worth the climb up. Although tiring, it is all worth it. I'm on top of the crater! Along the way, there are nice view.

No regrets coming here. The climb up via slopes and steps is quite manageable with some stops in between. Tho for inactive person like me, legs became a little wobbly as I came down ☺️ Windy & cold at times, so better have jackets ready. We took about 40 mins to ascend, stayed around for 30 mins. Descend was slightly... More

The number one attraction on Jeju and an impressive climb to the top. Lots of signs to explain the geological formations at key points en route. The attractions divides the ascenders from the descenders which helps with the climb. Wonderful view from the top. The attraction is beautifully looked after no litter and only about £1 to visit. If you... More

Perhaps it was because my friend and I went on a gray and drizzling day, but we felt that Seongsan Ilchubong was slightly underwhelming. The climb was alright, slightly strenuous for the couch potato but not difficult. The crater and the view at the end of the climb were not as fantastic as we thought they would be. Though if...
