Traverse The Landscape of Jeju Island, Seoraksan, and Seoul
Jeju Island shrouds its lush terrains in myths and enigmas, starting visitors off with a optical illusion at Mysterious Road, where a seemingly upwards sloping path is then revealed to slant downwards, followed by a briny trip to Yongduam Rock off the isle’s jagged coast. Also named Dragon Head Rock, local legend purports that the structure arose after a dragon stole the elixir of immortality from the Mount Hallasan deity, but was struck down by a well-placed arrow by the god, before falling into the ocean and turning to stone.The fable’s veracity can be pondered whilst navigating a potentially steamy trip along the conical oleum that is Sunrise Peak - a 182-metre volcanic formation brought to its current state by eruptions from five millenniums ago, with the 99 rugged spires that hem its crater often earning it comparisons to gargantuan ancient castles.
Nabbing itself a governmental nature reserve designation and a declaration by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve, Seoraksan National Park swells in a symphony of mountain peaks, shepherded by thriving deciduous forests pregnant with an abundance of rare flora and fauna. Towering escarpments part their lofty altars to unveil Sinheungsa, a religious site for Buddhists in the Jogye Order, believed to be the oldest Zen temple in the world. Seated on a lotus pedestal, the 48-foot and 108-tonne Bronze Buddha (bestowed with the name Tongil Daebul) smiles over worshippers paying reverence, his copper shell containing three pieces of the Buddha’s sari and the Tripitaka.
A quintuplet from the Joseon Dynasty’s ‘Five Grand Palaces’ family, Deoksugung Palace distinguishes itself from most other royal residences with its Western influenced gardens and architecture. Made famous by its stone-walled road, the setting contains the customary stately buildings where King Gwanghaegun and his ilk once inhabited, along with an annex of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Daehan Empire Historical Museum, the latter currently housed within the interiors of the Seokjojeon. Educations are furthered at Blue House, the official abode of the head of state, given its name due to the cascade of handmade cerulean tiles that blanket the pavilion’s roofs. In the distance, Mount Namsan rises from the city’s core, the Namsan Park pinnacle offering a panoramic view of the metropolis following a brief cable car ride to its highest point at N Seoul Tower.
