See the Incredible Jeongbang Waterfall

South Korea

Another famous waterfall found on South Korea’s Jeju Island, Jeongbang is thought to be the only waterfall in Asia that falls directly into the ocean (although it pours into a sheltered cove first before heading out to sea). Legend has it that a holy dragon lives under the falls and that the spirit of the dragon infuses the water with healing properties.

There is an inscription on the wall of the waterfall reading “Seobulgwacha.” This refers to Seobul, a servant of the Chinese Emperor Jin (BC 259~210), who came across the falls on his quest to find herbs for the emperor, which could make him immortal.
