Our Korea Waterfalls page showcases all the waterfalls that we have managed to personally experience over a long trip to the Korean Peninsula as well as Jeju Island. As a result, we have a survey in the form of this web page that we feel is quite representative of the area.
Granted, outside of Jeju Island, it seemed like most foreign visitors to South Korea have not really considered chasing any waterfalls (instead opting for folk villages and city sights in Seoul, Andong, Jeonju, and Busan). So it’s in this spirit that we hope this website can be a resource for those wishing to really expand their minds when it comes to experiencing more of the area’s Nature (especially its waterfalls). Indeed, our efforts of pursuing Korean Waterfalls really got us to experience parts of region often overlooked in most tourist itineraries.
By the way, this page is dedicated to the entire Korean Peninsula though independent travel is really only possible in South Korea.
That said, I am holding out hope that one of these days, we’ll be able to explore the Nature in North Korea.
In any case, while some waterfalls may be possible to visit via public transport, we’ve self-driven to all the waterfalls we’ve featured on this page, but realize that routing via Google Maps doesn’t work. Instead, you’ll have to rely on Korean Map apps like Kakao or Naver, and that means you’ll have to use Hangeul (the Korean writing system) in order to properly use such apps. In fact, on each write-up we do for waterfalls in Korea, we’re including the Hangeul names so you can recognize them or search for them more easily (as romanizations of Korean words aren’t always available nor accurate).
While the Korean system seems foreign at first, upon studying it, you’ll see that it’s actually an ingenious way to improve literacy as opposed to memorizing Chinese characters (Hangja).
