2011 November: South Korea: Jeju: Hallim Park

There is much to see at Hallim Park, Jeju and I was only able to visit the left wing of the park at a given time of less than 1.5 hours.

First we visited Hyeopjae and Ssangyong Caves, formed by the eruption of Mt. Halla and there are stalactites and stalagmites which were seldom found in lava caves. These are more of basalt rocks than limestone. It looks to be a living cave as water is still dropping from the ceiling. Also, the temperature in the cave is at 17 to 18 degrees Celsius all year around.Next, I visited…
