#709 - Seongsan Ilchulbong (Sunrise Peak) / Jeju Woman Diver (Haenyo) Performance

Seongsan Ilchulbong otherwise known as Sunrise Peak, we paid 8000won for 9 people when it cost 1000won each for youth thanks to Mr Ann, and yet we didn't climb because time wasn't on our side haha.

 There was this chart which told you the timing of the sunrises the whole year, very interesting.

 Main reason why we were there, to catch the woman divers' perfomance.

A view of Seongsan Ilchulbong from the side.

Singing before diving in, for great harvest.
Many of the haenyo (woman divers) are at least 50 years old (keywords: at least) and above and they dive in with no proper equipment just their black suit. I am really impressed and part of me actually feels really sad for them having to do this at an old age to earn a living. :(

They went in fast and came back fast too. (Y)

Just some shells along the slippery shore...
