Cheonjiyeon Pokpo

Top choice in Seogwipo

This popular 22m-high waterfall is reached after a 10-minute walk through a beautifully forested, steep gorge. The waterfall can be impressive following heavy rain; at other times it’s more noisy than wide. Well worth visiting in the evening, too, when the illuminated gorge takes on a romantic atmosphere. The falls are on Olle Trail 6; you can easily walk here from town or take the Seogwipo City Tour Bus.
