South Korea ~Seongsan Sunrise Peak - Jeju Island - UNESCO~

... Lovely scenic view... the ocean, tropical weather, volcanic mountains, pretty flowers and even horses that are native to the island (brought in hundreds of years ago) makes this island a touristic hotspot... especially during Spring when the Seongsan Sunrise Peak is surrounded by rapeseed flowers in a sea of yellow... a symbolic flower of Jeju... the Sunrise Peak is also one of the most popular places in Korea to see the rising sun as it appears above the sea's horizon.... I've seen it too, last weekッ... on a popular Belgian TV travel program... postmarked at the island itself.... Big Thanks David!!❁◕ ‿ ◕❁➞ Postcards a world Travelogue

Jeju Island is the largest island of South Korea. It is also one of the nine provinces of the country and the smallest of all of them. It was formed as a result of a volcanic eruption. Situated to the south in the subtropical belt. That means its flora and climate is quite different from the rest of Korea.

The Seongsan Sunrise Peak, known commonly as Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, is an enormous “Tuff Cone” that was formed by a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago. The peak contains 99 sharp rocks that form around the edge of the crater.

In 2007, the whole volcanic island itself, as well as the famous lava tubes within its caves, were added on the World Natural Heritage list.
