Park Introduction

Hallasan is one of Korea’s three most sacred mountains, located on the southernmost island of the Korean Peninsula. It rises 1,950m above sea level, making it the tallest mountain in South Korea. Due to its diverse vegetation it has special scientific importance as a treasure house of plants, and was therefore designated as a natural monument (No. 182) on October 12th, 1966, and officially named the Hallasan Natural Conservation Area.

A young volcanic mountain of the fourth Cenozoic era, Hallasan was an active volcano until about 25,000 years ago, resulting in over 360 oreums (parasitic cone volcanoes) which form a spectacular landscape. Nestled in the middle of an island, Hallasan looks both inviting and majestic. The ever-changing colors of the scenery evoke a sense of wonder in all those who seek the beauty of nature, and this is why the area was designated a national park on March 24th 1970, and a UNESCO ‘Biosphere Reserve’ in December 2002.

Jeju-do is considered by Koreans to be a gift from God, and Hallasan holds many ancient wonders to be shared with the world. This unique area was internationally recognized on June 27th, 2007 when ‘Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes’ were designated Korea’s first UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.
