A 30 m tall (98.5 ft) and 23 m (75.5 ft) wide lava tube penetrating more than 13 km (8 mi) into the earth, Manjanggul Cave makes up part of a World Heritage Site sheltering exceptional volcanic rock formations and wildlife. Observe the world's largest lava column standing 7.6 m (25 ft) tall, and a stone shape resembling Jeju Island. Part of a larger lava tube system, the cave features the greatest number of living creatures of all tubes on the island, including bats and the Jeju cave-spider. Formed 200,000-300,000 years ago, the tunnel remains remarkably well-preserved with lava stalagmites and stalactites and cascades of funky flowstones. Watch the slippery steps and dress for 10 C (50 F). Add Manjanggul Cave to your Jeju travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Jeju online journey planner .

Manjanggul Cave Reviews
처음 입구에 들어가시는 경우, 어둠에 익숙하지 않은터라 잘 안보이더군요. 약 1km 정도를 돌아보실 수 있는데, 돌아나오실 때 좀 더 자세히 동굴이 보이니 천천히 구경하시면서 나오는 편이 좋습니다. 대부분은 급하게 나가시더군요. more »When you first went to the entrance, for those of you unfamiliar with the dark-well security. You can read about 1km or so back, a little more when you come back, I do see coming out of the cave as you slowly caliber. Most of them are in a hurry or thorn says.
It's honestly just a really cool cave. Not much to see here and I wouldn't highly recommend taking kids here as they *might* not enjoy it that much. It was my 23rd birthday and I had the entire day to... more »
Worth visiting!!! I’ve visited a number of caves from different countries and this is definitely worth the money for the ticket. It’s a looong walk in a dark and cool place so don’t forget to bring something to keep you warm while inside the cave. The ground is definitely not even and can get a bit slippery so make sure to wear comfy, stable and covered shoes.
Things to note: It's cold down there. Bring a flannel or sweater if you get cold easily because it was about 12.5 Celsius/55 Fahrenheit down there. Wear good footwear because of the uneven footing and wet slippery surfaces. There are restrooms, a restaurant, a convenience store, a place to rinse your feet, and a coin locker to store bags and stuff. There is a bus that runs about every 20 minutes or so, and a line of taxis trying to take you if you don't want to wait. This place was awesome! 1K into one of the longest lava tubes in the world! There are signs that point out some features of the tube that one without a geological background might not understand or may not even notice! At the end of the tunnel is a great photo op with the largest known lava column in the world. You might also get lucky and spot a cave spider during your jaunt in and back out the way you came.
