Place of Interest in Jeju Island : Jeongbang Waterfall
UNTUK BAHASA MELAYU, KLIK SINI.
Located in Seogwipo. What makes this waterfall unique compared to the rest of waterfalls in Asia is – this one falls directly into the ocean. The view is very dramatic and I can guarantee that you will say ‘wow’ the moment you see it from the distance.
This waterfall is 23 meter / 75 feet high. It was written in a legend that a holy dragon lived underneath it. Due to it, it was said that the water can cure disease and bring rain during drought season.
It costs KRW 10,000 to enter this area, same price as Cheonjiyeon waterfall entrance fee. The comparison that I can make between these two waterfalls is – Cheonjiyeon has beautiful landscape compared to Jeongbang. But Jeongbang has the dramatic factor compared to relaxing, calming Cheonjiyeon waterfall.
You will go through a simple, quaint little path before you reach the waterfall gate entrance. No man made sculptures or attempt to make this road appear to be more touristy. However, the pink wild flowers blooms along this little path captures my heart. If you pay very close attention, you will see spider (s) hanging in the bushes alongside the road too. And if you not scared of it, you can check it out and test your macro skill with your camera. Remember : look but don’t touch!
Note: There are lots of spiders in Jeju Island. They are every where.
I was unable to get too close to the falls because 1) it was cold windy day 2) I easily suffocate with water mist 3) I don’t have water protection cover for my camera. So, if you plan to come here, please make sure to bring water proof camera protection if you really care of your expensive camera.
Kasut tu, kalau boleh, bertapak getah atau sport shoes. Aku ada nampak pelancong berjalan di Jeju ni pakai boots tumit tinggi. Aku bukan nak kutuk. Masing masing punya stail dalam berfesyen. Cuma kalau mai melawat air terjun Jeongbang, aku rasa agak mustahil dengan tumit tinggi tersebut. Itu saja nak cakap.
Ah, one more thing – shoes. Please wear sensible, flat, good grip kind of shoes / sport shoes. I did saw few lady tourists walking around with high heeled boots. I am not against that. But, it is impossible to walk around here with shoes like that.
Enjoy the rest of the pictures.
