“Baksu” means spring water and “gijeong” means cliff in the Jeju language. Put them together and you have the most magnificent 100+ meter-tall wall that stands like a natural fortress along the south coast and the sea.
Here’s a recent sunset as seen from the base of the cliff and Daepyeong Port. In the distance is Hyeongjeseom Islet to the far left and Songaksan Mountain behind them to the right.
