I loved the walk to this water fall. It felt short for there was so much to see in the surroundings. I fell in love with the place. It's just so serene to visit this place and I was glad we did it. We just took the bus from the hotel instead of hiring a car. It was easy to... More

The place is quite big and there's alot of steps which requires good stamina to walk up and down to go from one waterfall to the next. Near the entrance is the cheonjeyeon pond and you have to walk further to see the other 3 waterfalls as well as the bridge. Ended up I was too tired for that day... More

A must see of the 3 major falls on Jeju. Do be careful when u go down the steps to reach the waterfall area. Also don't forget to sample raw seafood sold by Korean woman divers selling sea cucumber, octopus, slugs. I tried it and find it very delicious as I love sashimi(raw food). All in all recommended itinerary when... More

This place is certainly not much of a go to destination in Jeju. Yes, there is a nice and beautiful waterfall. However, it is fairly small in height and nothing unusual about the waterfall. You do have to descend a number of steps to get to the waterfall as well, so beware of the climb up. There is also a... More

Went to the 1st fall, Cheonjeyeon Falls, but due to lack of water. Water fall didn't appeared on scene. There's still magnificent scene for 2nd waterfalls Funny to see Korean star's posters showed at the corridor of a building

Compared to the other waterfalls and mountains in the island, this is probably one you can skip if you don't have time. For waterfalls, Jeongbang and Cheonjiyeon at night is better. For mountains, go for Hallasan and Ilchubong. The sheer amount of climbing of stairs here is horrible. The first of the 3 waterfalls is also really disappointing.

Nothing special but the waterfall which they charge you a little fee to see. They will charge you here pretty much everywhere to see nature.

This waterfall is somewhat undersold. It was about two minutes' walk from our hotel so we decided to visit, and were glad we did. It is actually three waterfalls in one, all lovely. A beautiful bridge spans the river. The whole place is well landscaped and clean (no litter, just like the rest of South Korea!). It was almost empty... More

The first waterfall cascades only during heavy rainfall and the water flows into Cheonjeyeon pond which streams into the 2nd waterfall and continues onward to the 3rd waterfall. The 2nd waterfall is the most spectacular and the 3rd waterfall further afar can be missed if short on time and steps can be strenuous for the elderly. Trail of the 2nd... More
