Jeju Island and Lava Tubes

The island's natural wonders include Mount Hallasan, Korea's highest peak, and Seongsan Ilchulbong, the site of a volcanic crater rising from the sea. Visitors can also see cave systems where lava used to flow.
Owing to Jeju's unique geologic characteristics, the island was listed in the UNESCO World Heritage roster in 2007.
