Jeju Guide: Jungmun area part 2: Waterfalls and Cliffs

After finishing swimming at Jungmun Beach, we drove over to see Cheonjiyeon Waterfall. This is another popular destination in the Jungmun area because of its three tiered waterfall, bridge  and some other sights along the way.

Here I am at the first waterfall. It's hard to see here, but the water is actually coming out of the cave on the the sides of the main waterfall. I've heard that if you go after sunset, the cave is illuminated sothat you can see the water coming out of the cave in a new light, so to speak.

 The second falls. We were too hungry and never made it to the third.

The second falls from afar.

Seonimgyo Bridge. If you are able to get a glance of the sides of this bridge, you can see 7 nymphs in wrought iron.

On you way out, stop by the orange grove on the side of the parking lot. You can buy some overpriced tourist stuff here, but I just took a photo and left.

Jusangcheolli Cliffs are about a 10 minute drive from the waterfall and not far from the beach. The cliffs have a very interseting formation that would have been better viewed durring the day, rather than as the park was closing for the eveing. It is one of the few places in Korea that isn't illuminated at night.
