JEJU ISLAND - Mt. Songak

아름운 송악산

Today we went to Songak-san or Mt. Songak by bus from Jeju Bus terminal. We got ticket for 3000 won per person. When we reached at Moseulpo bus stop, we took a taxi and it cost us 5000 won going to Songaksan.

If you feel hungry or thirsty, don't worry. They have restaurants and convenience stores.
See, behind me are the places that you can get something to eat or drink 

One of the famous Korean TV miniseries 대장금 Daejanggeum, or Jewel in the Palace, which aired on MBC from September 15, 2003 to March 23, 2004 was filmed here.

Ok~ here is the natural pose of me 
holding my favorite Americano coffee before going up

바다도 하늘도 구름도 너무 예뻐요 ^^ 또 가 보고 싶당
The ocean, the sky and the cloud are so beautiful^^ 
They make me wanna go there one more

I already got tired, but still wanna go more 
Oh yeah!!! 잠깐 Free style 해야지~

View while taking a walk
직접 가보면 정말 아름다움
거기에 있는 동안 정말 있는 느낌인  

걷기 좋은 길 ^^
난 나중에 바다가 보이고 산이 보이는 곳에서 살거야 
멋진 이층집과 함께 아님 완전 전망좋은 고층 빌딩이나 아님 하우스

When we got here, we could see Gapado and Marado Island

Beautiful coast view of Mt. Songak cliff

You are not only walking up the hill to see the view around the mount, 
but you can also enjoy horse-riding when you got to the peak. 
It'll cost you 5000 won

If you have watched Daejanggeum (Jewel in the Palace), I believe you might see this cave in the scene. In episode 54, Jang-geum finds a woman in labor inside the cave. She performs an operation that saves both the woman and her child. Jinjigul Cave is actually man-made. Aiming to use Jeju Island as an advance base to protect its mainland, the Japanese military excavated Jinjigul Cave in early 1945. An exhibition showing military equipment and everyday articles used by the Japanese military has recently been opened in the cave, and it is becoming a popular tourist attraction. I tried to go inside, but honestly it was quite scary. I have no idea exactly why? But yeah, it was dark, cold, SCARY!!!

The Mountain actually has 17 caves, 
but I didn't capture all of them together
