Fodor's Review

This grotto carved into the side of Mt. Sanbang is a significant Buddhist shrine and important site for locals. The steep staircase climb is exhausting but well worth the effort for the panoramic ocean views. Once at the top, visitors can drink from the fresh mountain spring and make a donation to the life-sized Buddha statue. This is one of the most popular cultural sites in Jeju.
