Top 5 Sunset Points in North Jeju

Top 5 Sunset Points in North Jeju, Jeju, South Korea (B)

For sun chasers, Jeju can be paradise. Vantage viewing points can be found on top of peaks or oreums (parasitic volcanoes), along the long coastline, Jeju Olle Trails, and even on top of lighthouses.

It’s just a matter of being there, at the right moment, and having the will to wait.

Sarabong Peak (Sara Oreum), in Sarabong Park, is one of the top 10 sunset viewing points in Jeju. Not having done adequate research on the north, I hadn’t heard of this viewing point. In a strange twist of sorts, since I was having some trouble finding Jeju National Museum or the nearby Buddhist Temple (there are multiple temples in the vicinity); I had a tough choice to make. Instead, I decided to try exploring the trail that lead to the top.

The trail (from the main road below) leads you to a crossroads of sorts. Two paths (in opposite directions) lead towards elevated paths — each corresponding to a different peak.
