About Jeju

About Jeju

Jeju Island is the largest volcanic island in Korea and it has a mild oceanic climate throughout the year with the smallest annual temperature range in South Korea. Officially called Jeju Special Self-Governing Province, this best tourist destination boasts mild weather, as well as scenic beauties of beaches, waterfalls, cliffs and caves. The island is 73km wide and 31km long with a total area of 1,848.85km2. Jeju is the largest island in South Korea.

Mt. Halla rises in the center of Jeju to 1950m above sea level. The rest of the island slopes down from its summit and is covered with dark gray volcanic rocks and volcanic ash soil. Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak with breathtaking views is also one of the most scenic areas, and Manjanggul Cave, the world's longest lava tube has been registered as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage. Meanwhile, Jeju has recently won the Global Geopark certificate, and also has been selected as the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

Samda-Do (Island abundant with 3things)

Since Jeju is abundant in Wind, Stone and Women, it has often been called Samda-do, a nickname which has been since olden times. First and foremost since it is surrounded by water from all side,s plenty of wind is obvious. Every house has a piled up layer of stones called 'Doldam' which have holes in it that is why even fierce winds also pass by them easily. All these stones in Jeju were formed by Mt. Halla's volcanic eruptions. The reason behind a higher number of women compared to men is as the men used to go into the sea to catch fish and they often get caught in typhoons etc. and hence were not able to get back home. Jejudo natives have to deal with harsh natural environment . It is because of them that this beautiful Island still exists.
