You need to pay to climb up and stop at the observatory area, allow you to capture a nice view of the open sea. There's only a temple at the top of the track, and when i went there it was closed. Not worth to climb up until the cave/temple.

The views are really great! It was totally worth the visit. Sunset views were amazing from there. The temples were really nice too.

Walking along the sides of the mountain next to the open sea was quite thrilling for us seniors to say the least. We had to be careful of our steps in the uneven stone/rocks which were wet. But it all paved for a good adventure with lovely views, photo opportunity and a chance to take some great photos standing up on the rocks. We enjoyed the visit.

Sanbangsan (산방산) isn't a really big mountain, but it has an interesting and distinguishable shape. It is about an hour west of Seogwipo by bus which stops conveniently right in front of the mountain.

There is a nice temple at the base of the mountain called Sanbanggulsa (산방굴사) with a huge golden Buddha, a wonderful view of the town below and the ocean, and an army of miniature mint-coloured Buddhas (I think). All make for great photos.

Further up the mountain (you can climb up a long flight of stairs) is a small temple in a cave with an even better view of the town below. Worth visiting if you have made it this far. There is also an interesting story about a monk who hid in the cave during a violent time (can't exactly remember details).

Down below, south of the street in front of the mountain is a really, really nice coastal walk with impressive cliffs that have been ocean and wind-swept into wonderful formations. This place is called "Yongmeori Coast" and also makes for great picture. (Worth knowing that the coast closes during heavy rain for safety reasons.)

(Also of interest in the area to some is Hamel's Ship (a replica/museum of an old Dutch ship that landed on Jeju ages ago and the story of the Dutchman that was held captive in the island) and horseback riding (though it's only in a circle). Could be good for kids, though these two are the least attractive for me, personally.)
