The 2021 World Heritage Festival opens Jeju’s doors to all

Jeju has plenty of UNESCO World Heritage sites that tell the story of the island’s tumultuous, volcanic beginnings. Tourists can visit many of these sites throughout the year. The dramatic cliffs of Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, the mysterious underground stretch of Manjanggul Cave, and Jusangjeolli Cliff’s unique columnar rock formations are highlights, though there are plenty of heritage sites that don’t draw as much attention.

The World Heritage Festival: Jeju Volcanic Islands and Lava Tubes aims to highlight some of these more unknown sites. The festival, which will take place from October 1 until October 17, will run several programs. Most of them are limited in the number of people who can participate due to the sensitive nature of the heritage sites. But for the chosen few, the tours will be a brilliant chance to explore some of Jeju’s off-limit attractions.
