Spread around the world there are plenty of paradisiacal places that are a real sight to behold thanks to their beauty. Places that are worth visiting at least once in life to feel all its magic. One of them is the jeju island, which is in South Korea, specifically in the southwest of the province of South Jeolla, in the heart of the Korean Strait.
It is one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, so it goes without saying that its natural environment is truly spectacular. Jeju Island is hundreds of years old and was formed after several Volcanic eruptions. It is chaired by Mount Halla, which in addition to being a volcano is the highest peak on the island with almost 2,000 meters high. The climate on the island is subtropical, very dry in winter and somewhat rainy in summer.
A very special place
This island is not very close to other places of interest in the country but it is definitely worth going expressly to that area to discover its beauty. Its flora and fauna are very exotic and there are species that you can only find on that island, such as the pink fish okdom-gui. The culture on the island is also different than in the rest of the country, with local traditions as the women are in charge of diving and getting seafood and fish without using any diving equipment.
What to see
In addition to nature itself, there are some places that are very interesting to visit, such as the city of Jeju, the Cheonjeyeon Falls, Wonang Falls, Yongduam Rock or Hallasan National Park. Especially interesting is the Manjanggul cave, which is the largest lava tube in the world and which is a true natural spectacle.
