KOREA DAY 4 - JEJU - 27th Dec 2011 - Sunrise Peak & Manjanggul Lava Tube!


its the 4th day of our stay in Jeju... 
we had our breakfast as usual.. provided by our Sunshine Hotel. :)
tell ya wad... we always woke up late for breakfast :P

as usual.. we drove to our pre-planned destination - The Lava Tube aka The Manjanggul Lava Tube.

here we are... :)

going down.. entering the lava tube.

here's how it is like... Not sure? Google it! :)

Now.. we set foot on the Lava Tube... or a cave? haha..

here.. i'm touching the wall of the lava tube.. which the lava flowed through during that time when the volcano erupted.

Overall.. it looks sth like this..

we walked through it..

quite a distance~

until we reached the Lava Column!

this was how it was formed during the volcano eruption last time..

here we are...

looks like i'm in some japanese show or sth.. somemore standing at the wrong car. ours is the white one! haha..
Well.. we've reached the Sunrise Peak aka Seongsan Ilchulbong.

Seongsan Ilchulbong, also called ‘Sunrise Peak’, is an archetypal tuff cone formed by hydrovolcanic eruptions upon a shallow seabed about 5 thousand years ago. Situated on the eastern seaboard of Jeju Island and said to resemble a gigantic ancient castle, this tuff cone is 182 meters high, has a preserved bowl-like crater and also displays diverse inner structures resulting from the sea cliff. These features are considered to be of geologic worth, providing information on eruptive and depositional processes of hydromagmatic volcanoes worldwide as well as past volcanic activity of Seongsan Ilchulbong itself.

FLYING IN!

Here we are.. at the foot of the Sunrise Peak.

the map..

WE were so LUCKY~! Free Admission for ALL Visitors at that time.
