This year the autumn colors for Mt. Halla will start turning on Oct. 17 and will reach their peak on the 28.
Jeju Regional Meteorological Administration predicts that the first autumn colors will turn one day faster than last year but two days later than the average over the past 20 years.
The first change in autumn colors comes later when daily temperatures are higher and there has been less precipitation. Based on this summer’s weather, the peak for autumn color will be on Oct. 28, four days earlier than average.
The peak for autumn color is usually two weeks after the leaves begin to first change. For the central area of the Korean peninsula and for the southern area around Mt. Jiri, it will be around mid-October to late October. The southern district will see the peak come in late October and early November.
The first autumn color is determined when 20 percent of the leaves on the mountain change and the peak is determined to be when 80 percent of the leaves have turned.
