Situated in the heart of Jeju Island, Mount Hallasan is not only the highest mountain in Korea, but is also the symbol of Jeju Island. Visible from all parts of the island, although its peak is often covered by the clouds, Mount Hallasan, a dormant volcano, is made up of diverse volcanic landscapes, including Crater Lake on the top of the mountain and numerous parasitic cones (Oreum) found on the volcanoes flank. The landscape is beautiful throughout the year and is home to a wide variety of plants. Visitors hiking up this mountain should stick to one of the four trails which lead to the top of the mountain, as it is quite easy to get lost when the mountain gets covered in fog. Offering great views, diverse eco systems, oreum’s, crater lakes and more, Mount Hallasan is a must visit, when vacationing on Jeju Island.

Although there are no known Halal cafés or restaurants on the mountain trail, Muslim visitors will be able to find a couple of suitable Halal outlets to get a bite to eat on Jeju Island. Muslim tourists could pack a snack from one of these outlets to take with them or visit one of these restaurants after their climb.
