Jeongbang Waterfall
Jeongbang Falls is among the top of three waterfalls of Jeju and the only waterfall in Asia to fall directly into the ocean...

How to Get There

When in Jeju, before I pass the Mysterious Road, I visit Jeongbang waterfall. This waterfall is very accessible from town, only need an hour trip by car. Other transportation that you can take is Intercity Bus No 780 or 730 to Seogwipo and get off at Dongmun Rotary. After buy the entrance fee about KRW 2000 (adults), you just have to follow the path to the waterfall.

What to Do

As I said before, this waterfall is very accessible waterfall. All you have to do was to climb up stairs, take photos and climb up another stairs in order to reach the rocky area where the waterfall is. It was fun watching people from above the waterfall posed in front of waterfall. Anyway, be careful while walking on the rocks, it can be slippery.

Jeongbang Falls is among the top of three waterfalls of Jeju and the only waterfall in Asia to fall directly into the ocean. It has 23 meters high and very close to the sea. On the cliff high above the sea stands an old evergreen tree, leaning out as if ready to fall into the ocean. It was a great place to relax after climb the stairs. There is an observatory at the top of the cliff, from which you can command a fine view of the sea.
