Join Kara Jue, a teacher at Branksome Hall Asia (an international school on Jeju Island) on a geological journey!
She starts at Cheonjiyeon Waterfall, a UNESCO-recognized World Natural Heritage site and traveler favorite for its cool forest trail and natural spectacle.
Kara then takes us a few hundred meters down to the coast to examine an important geological structure known as the Seogwipo Formation (a layer of volcanic and sedimentary rock). Kara spots an ancient fossil in a boulder along the sea. Can you?
Another amazing volcanic marvel is further along the coast at Daepo. The six-sided columnar joints are described by Kara as natural sculptures.
Do you agree? Please leave a comment, we’d love to hear from you.
