Sunrise at Seongsan Ilchulbong

Seongsan Ilchulbong is a UNESCO World Heritage site aptly named as Sunrise Peak because of the magnificent view of the sunrise at the top of the peak. It is one of the top attractions of Jeju and at the top of the peak is a crater.

Waking up early in the morning, we trekked up the peak for about 25 minutes with plenty of time to catch the sunrise. We were joined by Koreans, foreigners, and mosquitoes. The sky had clouds all around but it only served to make the skies even more colourful and beautiful.

It was clear when the sun came out by the symphony of camera shutters going off. There were DLSRs, point and shoots, iPhones, Samsungs, and all sorts of cameras going crazy. I’m guilty of three cameras – my Canon point and shoot, my iPhone, and my Fujifilm Instax mini 50s.

The view was simply magnificent and it’s well worth the climb during the day for those who aren’t too keen on waking up to catch the sunrise.
