cheonjeyeon

One of my most favorite stops on Jeju Island in South Korea was to see the Cheonjeyeon waterfalls.  It is a series of waterfalls along a volcanic crater and a really beautiful spot to visit.

At the entrance, there are clear signage as to how to get from fall to fall.

It is so beautiful here.

The reflection was clear and blue.  During the rainy season, water falls from the top.  But the day we were there, the waters were still and the markings of falling water are etched into the mountainside.

Heading down the path to follow the water,

it was tempting to want to take a dip.  But that was not allowed:

The second major part of these falls were right around the bend:

To another beautiful spot of serenity further down the hill.

At the base, there is a bridge you can walk over for a view of the falls from a different angle:

It’s a long way down!

Around the area, there are fountains and paths the enjoy the surroundings:
