Korea, Jeju island : 성산 일출봉

En français
From 태왕사신기we took the taxi then the bus to go to 성산 일출봉(seongsan Ilchulbong) sunrise peak. It's a volcanic formation called tuff cone formed by phreatic eruption, which means that the magna coming to the surface first warmed up the water causing water evaporation almost instantaneously and projecting it with the lava during the explosion, about 5 thousand years ago. The inside of the tuff cone is now covered with vegetation but presents divers structures considered of geological worth for the study of volcanic activities. It's a UNESCO World Heritage site.
