Cheonjeyeon Falls, Seogwipo

4.0
#5 of 38 in Parks in Seogwipo
Enjoy a scenic path and the sight of Cheonjeyeon Falls, tumbling in three tiers from 22 m (72 ft) and then from 30 m (98 ft), respectively. Gushing out of rocky formation into a large 21 m deep (69 ft) pond, the first waterfall offers a spectacular view, which you can enjoy from a railing at a safe distance. Called the "Pond of the Emperor of Heaven," this national treasure supports a number of rare plants growing in the vicinity of the cascades--most notably solipnan reed, which makes it a national monument. The hike will take you past a picturesque red and white metal pedestrian bridge and a Buddhist temple. Bring walking shoes, bug spray, and water. Cheonjeyeon Falls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Seogwipo Edition.

  • Nice park surrounding this unique canyon. 3 sets of waterfalls. An interesting bridge that goes over the canyon and a path that takes you through the woods. Takes a bit of effort but it's worth doing ...  more »

  • Great location for calm and refreshing hike. Wear comfortable shoes! Expect staircases...
  • A nice walk through 3 waterfalls with a pretty bridge on the way. I agree with the previous reviews that the last waterfall could be missed if you didn’t have the time; it’s not a great view from quite far away. The first two waterfalls are pretty and the basalt columns make them unique.
