Cheonjiyeon Waterfall (천지연 폭포)

The calm before the waterfall ^^

After the satisfying lunch at Soban 소반, it was off to visit one of the natural wonders of Jeju, Cheonjiyeon Waterfall (천지연 폭포), an area full of natural monuments (e.g. from the wild Dampalsu trees, camellias to the clear and deep waters of Cheonjiyeon etc...). The waterfall got its name from the legend of the 7 fairies serving the King of Heaven who came down to the pond on stairs of cloud and bathed in its clean waters.

The entrance and the hoards of visitors that day

From the entrance we made our way to the Cheonjiyeon Waterfall (천지연 폭포) and admired the landscape along the way. The path that led to the waterfall was beautiful with its diverse flora and fauna.

As we neared the waterfall, the rapids were more prominent and the water crystal clear. The clear and deep water is designated as natural monument No. 27

The weather was beautiful that day, it wasn't too hot and with the nice cool autumn breeze it made the walk even more enjoyable

When we finally arrived at our destination, it was a challenge trying to get a clear shot of not only the waterfall, but also of ourselves: there were simply too many visitors that day (of whom many were of the inconsiderate variety). But that did not dampen our mood as the scenery (almost) made up for the inconvenience.
