Jeju’s Jeongbang Falls

Within Seogwipo City along the waterfront on the southern coast of Jeju Island was Jeongbang Waterfall, claimed to be the only waterfall in Asia to plummet directly into the sea.

Steps led down from the cliff to the base of the twenty-three metre high waterfall where spray whipped through the air. It had rained through the night and during the morning, so unlike the many dry riverbeds I’d hiked over in the past week, abundant water sailed over the cliff and pounded the rocks.
