< CHEONJEYEON WATERFALL>

According to a legend, Cheonjeyon Falls means "the pond of God" where nymphs descend to take a bath. The first cascade of Cheonjeyon Falls is 22m high and the water forms a pond 21m in depth. The water flows farther along to form the second cascade of 30 m high. Up from Cheonjeyon Falls is the stunning arch bridge Seonimkyo, which is also called Seven Nymphs Bridge .
Water springs from a spot between the precipice of the waterfall and the lower clay layer. From the ceiling of a cave located east of the first waterfall, the water drops and grows into several streams of water. Since it is gushing out of stony ground, the water has been used for curing diseases as well as for drinking. From ancient times, people have believed that they can recover from any disease if they stand under a waterfall on either the Buddhist All Souls Day or Cheoseo Day (at the end of August).
Right next to the falls is Yeomiji Botanical Gardens and many other tourist attractions.

< DAEPO JUSANGJEOLLI >

 
The columnar joints are situated at seashore east Jungmun Tourism Complex. Black hexagonal stone pillars are piled on top of each other; they unfold like a folding screen as if a god elaborately piled up blocks of stone. The sound of the waves crashing into the rocks is remarkably refreshing. At the Daepo Columnar Joints, visitors can feel the mightiness and exquisiteness of the nature. It was designated as Cultural Property No. 50 by the Jeju Government.
Standing before the spectacular pillar-shaped joints, you feel as if you were listening to a poignant story of a stonecutter in bursts of white foam. When the tide is high, they jump up to 20 meters high as if lava were spouting. Thanks to its dramatic scenery, it stands in the spotlight for tourists on a theme tour. The columnar joint is a pillar-shaped joint that can be commonly seen in basalt-covered areas. The rocks are hexagonal polygons. It is a result of volcanic activities; thick lava flowing from the mouth of a volcano cools abruptly down and contracts. The Daepo Columnar Joint is 30-40 m high and has a width of 1 km. It is the largest of its kind in Korea . The place is part of Jungmun-dong, Seogwipo-si and called "Jisatgae Rock", named after the old name of Jungmun-dong "Jisatgae".

It was also reported as one of the places representing Korea by CNN of the US , GEO of Germany, Inminilbo of China, and other foreign leading media saying marvellous and inspiring park.

Jeju is called Samda-do as it is abundant in stone, wind and women. Jeju rocks are everywhere but it is banned to take them out of Jeju Island . Produced stones only are allowed to take out.
Master Jang Gong Ik, who has made stone grandfather for 40 years sculpted the lives of Jeju with stone and they are on display in Stone Park arranged on the site of 10,000 pyeong. Statues of state leaders, presidents, and prime ministers who visited Jeju Island and were presented with stone grandfathers stood there as well. Stone statues of Buddha, the elaborate works of master Jang, made Buddhist atmosphere of the park.
