is located in the southernmost part of Korea, on Jeju Island. Standing 1,950m above sea level Hallasan is the highest mountain in South Korea, and is a dormant volcano with a lake crater at its summit. The entire area has been designated as a nature preservation zone and UNESCO Natural Biosphere Reserves in an effort to protect the rare plants and animals that inhabit the mountain park.
