    Introduction
    Bongnaepokpo Falls is three-tiered with a height of 25 meters. The flowing, cool water brings a slight chill to the area surrounding the falls, especially in summer. As a major tourist attraction, Bongnaepokpo Falls is also the only source of drinking water for residents in Ulleung-eup. Most of the water used in restaurants and inns in Ulleung-eup come from Bongnaepokpo Falls.

    Two sites near the falls are well worth visiting: Punghyeol (natural air vents from which cool subterranean air blows) and the Forest Retreat. Punghyeol is located between Jeodong-ri and Bongnaepokpo Falls. During the peak of summer, chilly winds of about 4℃ below from the rock openings and is often known as the “natural air-conditioner.” Next to Punghyeol is a thick forest of cedar, which makes a wonderful vacation spot during summertime.
