What are some fun outdoor things to do in Jeju Island? Visit Hallasan National Park, Jeongbang Waterfall & more

Escape to the south on the Jeju South Side Tour. You'll take a walk down the Mysterious Road, hike Hallasan Mountain, explore the fresh beauty of Hallasan National Park, and take part in many other exciting activities. The Mysterious Road (Dokkaebi Road) is your first stop. The road earns its name for its gravity defying antics; cars do not doll down its seemingly steep path, but, in fact, roll upwards. This is entirely optical illusion created by the surroundings, and it is fascinating to watch. Hallasan Mountain marks the next adventure. Beginning at the National Park Visitor Center and ending at the Eoseungsaengakoreum Summit, this trail winds through Jeju's lovely landscapes and scenery. At the Hallasan Mountain Visitor Center you can learn more about the national park's environment and history. Exhibition halls show interesting educational videos about the myths surrounding the mountain, and the geology and ecology here. Take a gentle 30 minutes stroll through the Eoseungsaengak trail, where you'll be met with the impressive sight of a parasitic cone volcano. From the height of the peak, you will be able to see Chuja Island, Biyang Island, and the famous tuff-cone Seongsan-Ilchulbong. The jaunt through nature continues with the Jeonbang waterfall. The Jeongbang waterfall is part of the Jeju waterfall trifecta, including the Cheonjiyeon waterfall and the Cheonjaeyeon waterfall. The Joengbang waterfall differs from the rest because it is the only one in Korea that spills into the sea. The water falls from 23 meters, cascading in a thunderous rush towards a turquoise pool below. Pine trees and cliffs surround the falls, creating an overall magnificent image. There is still so much to see on the tour of Jeju's south. The next stop is a jeju temple. The Yakcheonsa temple holds the largest buddhist status in Asia, and is widely regarded to have a pond with healing water inside. Many people come here to see the medicinal pool, and to drink from its restorative waters. Not only this, the inside is absolutely breathtaking, with giant golden buddhas and sculpted murals creating an atmosphere of peace and pulchritude. The Jusangjeolli cliff is your next stop. Known for its odd yet beautiful columnar joints, the Jusangjeolli cliff is a mysterious, blackened monolith rising from a blue ocean. The distinct column shapes of Jusangjeolli cliff are created when a volcano erupts, and thick pools of lava fall in rivulets. The end result is captivating. The columns are 30-40 meters in height, making them the largest columnar joints in Korea. The Alive Museum is your final stop. Here, optical illusion and art create an interactive experience you can't find anywhere else in Korean. The Alive Museum allows you to step into the art, with 3D props and 2D paintings working together to create the illusion that you are a part of the painting. It's fun, hilarious, and a great thing to do with friends.
