Seogwipo 서귀포 : Cheonjeyeon Falls (천제연 폭포)

My friend has a car! That means I can go to a lot of places and not have to wait a long time for a bus 🙂

Our first stop was Cheonjeyeon Waterfall.  We actually had no intention of going there, we just wanted to eat the Tak-Ei Noodle (탁이국수), which is a noodle soup with pork inside (I think it was supposed to be black pork but I am not sure…). My friend didn’t really like this version of it, commenting it was too watery.

Since we were close to the waterfall, we decided to make a pitstop there.  It is called The Pond of God, and it consists of three tiers… The first part is where you can see still water with columns reflecting on the waters.

I think it would be a very interesting place for a profile picture.  Koreans are good at finding a good picture opportunity.

The second part is the waterfall!  The waterfall is … a little underwhelming and I am wondering if it is because there hasn’t been a lot of rainfall over the few days …

The hiking path at the waterfall is actually nicely made, which is probably thanks to the fact that they collect admission fees.

We skipped over the bridge and headed towards the final fall but it was also a little underwhelming…

However, through the forested area, we can see the overbent bridge.  It has quite an incline but it looks nice from afar.

There was a path heading further out, even though we visited all the waterfalls already.  It leads to a temple that is blocked off for visitors.  On the bright side, there is a nice view 🙂

The fall has another entrance and that is across the bridge and towards the cleanly paved path.  It leads you to the Jungmun area right in front of the TwoSome Coffee and not far from the Kpop Museum.

Across the bridge is also an observatory deck where you can see the waterfalls from afar.

… with that note, we leave Cheonjeyeon Falls 🙂
