South Korea 2011 Day 9 – Seongsan Ilchulbong, Manjanggul Lava Cave, Sangumburi Crater, Jeju Folk Museum and Haenyeo Woman Divers

View from a top of the Seongsan Ilchulbong, also known as Sunrise Peak! We were here early in the morning to catch the sunrise but the weather wasn’t playing nice and so we couldn’t see any sun. This was the shot of the crater of this tuff cone, so huge I could only capture it all by shooting multiple shots and stitching them into a panoramic one when back on my laptop.
Also from the top, the view on the other side showed the surrounding Jeju landscape. I was still wishing for the weather to be better.
Slightly less than left an hour of drive from Seongsan Ilchulbong brought us to Manjanggul Lava tube, the 2nd longest of such tunnel in Jeju. A Lava tube is a naturally formed tunnel that used to be the route of molten lava as it exits from a volcano and flows underneath the hardened surface of previous lava flow.
We visited another crater, called the Sangumburi Crater. This crater was very big! The size of it can only be captured with a panoramic shot of it!
