"Mysterious Sea-Parting" festival in Korea !!!

  Have you ever heard about The"Mysterious Sea-Parting" festival in Korea?

According to the legend, a Jindo village was once attacked by tigers and all the villagers fled to Modo island accidentally leaving behind an old woman Out of despair she prayed to the sea God, who split the sea and helped her escape.
The Jindo county is an archipelago of 250 islands & the third largest in Korea. Every year at the end of February and again in mid-June, extremely low tide causes a natural land pass 2.9 km long and 10–40 meters wide to appear connecting the main Jindo island and a small Modo island. The path lasts for roughly an ho...ur and allows people from both places to meet halfway and celebrate.
