[Themed Content] 7 important Jeju sites that made it a UNESCO Global Geopark

Jeju gained UNESCO Global Geopark certification in 2010. This is an award given to areas with sites of international geological significance. 13 attractions currently contribute to the Geopark designation–each of them well-preserved examples of the volcanic activity that occurred on the island between 1.8 million and 10,000 years ago. This article will introduce seven of the attractions: Suweolbong Peak, Sanbangsan Mountain, Yongmeori Coast, Jusangjeolli Cliffs, Cheonjiyeon Falls, the Fossil Shells of Jeju Formation, and Manjanggul Cave. We’ll also explain why each one is significant. 

Please note: During the COVID-19 pandemic, traveling to Jeju is problematic. In the meantime, we are highlighting some of the island’s attractions. We sincerely hope you will visit Jeju once it is safe to do so.
