23 Dec Korea: Jusangjeolli Cliff & Oedolgae Rock
We were planning to have a lovely day but our plans were drenched with rain. Supposedly, weather is the best from September to November. I guess we were damn unlucky lor. Dafug. Even though we had our ponchos with us, it didn’t really help us in keeping ourselves dry. And I ended up with gloomy pictures of the places of interest we visited. Yet, I don’t think it’s a bad thing and that there’s still a kind of beauty in the pictures maybe? At least we don’t just get to see bright and sun-shiny photos found everywhere on the internet. Not that I won’t return to Jeju in the future so nevermind, everybody move along. The place I was really looking forward to see was Yongmeori Coast but unfortunately due to the weather, it wasn’t accessible. DARN! Better luck next time. Pfft.
The Mount Hallasan we climbed in my previous post was the contributor to the formation of Jusangjeolli Cliff.
[quote]The Jusangjeolli was formed when the lava from Hallasan Mountain erupted into the sea of Jungmun. They are rock pillars shaped like cubes or hexagons of various sizes and almost seem as if stonemasons had carved them out. – via visitkorea[/quote]
Even though at one glance out to sea, it was grey, there were still areas around the edge of the cliff with crystal blue & turquoise waters.
Along the way to Oedolgae Rock, and the rain was briefly gone, we found this flat land that was super windy. Cheap thrills.
Instead of feeling fascinated by the Oedolgae Rock itself, we were more interested in this area where pots of ponds are formed. Some peeps even brought along their swimwear and took a dip. Must have been really refreshing.
The walk up to where the buses were leads us to Sanbanggulsa Temple.
And this ends the last of my stay in Jeju. To be continued with Seoul sightings.
