Guide To Daepo Jusangjeolli Cliff Jeju Island, South Korea

Last updated:

Daepo Jusangjeolli Hexagonal Lava Cliff is one of my favorite places to visit on Jeju Island. I was amazed when I first visited here. These rock formations are perfectly hexagonal, creating a unique natural scenery.

In this article, I’d like to share useful information about Jusangjeolli Cliff, how to get there, ticket prices, and other travel tips.

 

The formation of Jusangjeolli Hexagonal Lava Cliff

This mind-blowing lava cliff was formed between 250,000 and 140,000 years ago when lava from Hallasan Mountain erupted into the Jungmun sea.

It results in an area of thousands of dark gray stone columns lined up side by side along the coast. From a distance, this place looks like artwork with fine sculptural lines. And yes, the mother of nature was its creator.
