Explore the Ilchul Land acreage at any time of year

dsc02584Regular readers of this blog will have noticed an alternating outdoor/indoor theme to recent posts relating to the winter season and cold weather.

Hallim Park, for example, has a wealth of daffodils blooming at the moment, while Herb Dongsan is celebrating Jeju’s winter nights with a media façade and garden light display.

The indoor Yeomiji Botanical Garden, meanwhile, is a great choice when it’s just a little too cold for some.

Now, when it comes to Hallim Park, I did mention in passing that there are also indoor greenhouse areas and a natural cave system to explore – all with a nice climate-controlled environment.

This is also the case at Ilchul Land in Seongsan-eup, Seogwipo-si, the topic of today’s post.

This large acreage is made up of a waterfront park, a replica folk village, a cactus greenhouse, art center and more.

But the jewel in the crown is Micheongul Cave, a natural volcanic formation that is reminiscent of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Manjanggul Cave in Gimnyeong, though a smaller version of that.

You can walk the length of about 350 meters underground (by contrast, Manjanggul has a 1-kilometer section open to the public) and view the different volcanic formations in the relative comfort of its protected climate.
