Rising from the ocean like a rocky crown, the World Heritage Site of Seongsan Ilchulbong stands as a testament to the region's ancient volcanic activity. Formed nearly 5,000 years ago by an eruption, the formation, known as a "tuff cone," features sheer walls with a depressed center. Hike your way up to the top of the raised crater, which stands 180 m (591 ft) high and has a diameter of nearly 600 m (1,969 ft), and look out over the rugged interior. You'll also get to enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding ocean and coastline from the rim.

Seongsan Ilchulbong Reviews
這是一個火山，由陸地火山爆發形成； 附近有海女表現； 要行一段樓梯級，才可以上山頂參觀及 山頂很美，值得參觀。 more »This is a volcano, formed by the eruption of the volcano, nearby sea women show, to walk a ladder, before you can go up the mountain and the mountains are beautiful, worth the visit.
行上觀望臺需時30分鐘, 不停爬樓梯, 都有點辛苦。 但上觀望臺景色一流, 舒服。 雖然叫日出峰, 但黃昏上去都很美, 別有一番味道。 more »It takes 30 minutes to look up on the line, and it takes a little hard to climb the ladder. But the view is first-class and comfortable. It's called Sunrise Peak, but it's beautiful to get up, and it smells like that.
It’s a very uphill hike, but you will be rewarded with the amazing views at the top. The path is well maintained and not exposed anywhere. Get some water on a hot day. It takes around 20 minutes to get to the top and some more to walk through the village.
The atmosphere here is tranquil, with a very picturesque view of the east coast of Jeju Island on the peak. Easily accessible by public transport, it's always crowded with locals and tourists alike who wanted to catch a rare glimpse of this unique landscape. The trek towards the top of the hill wasn't that tiring for us during the last time we went there, so I do believe it's very much suitable for anyone who wants to make it to the top of the hill. Frankly speaking, I would definitely encourage you to visit this special site as the sense of achievement and the panoramic view from atop would really intrigue you to conquer the heights and trust me, you wouldn't regret it!
