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.

  • Went out here because it was recommended via a coworker. Would definitely recommend! Keep in mind the cave was much colder then outside so don’t be surprised. Also, I don’t know who needs to hear...

  • These lava caves are the best way to beat the summer heat. With naturally cooler air, you feel refreshed the moment you step down into the mouth of the expanse. Despite the darkness, there are enough lights to guide you to the main attraction of the lava tube. Even though there's not much to see except for the cave walls, having a good companion to talk with makes the journey enjoyable. I enjoyed this location for the natural air conditioning, disquieting sensation of entering an ancient blood stream of the Earth, and observing the behaviors of all the cave walkers.
  • I’d like to share my experience of Manjanggul cave in Jeju. It is also listed as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. There are three entrances. But only the second entrance is accessible. The passage is 18 meters wide and 23 meters high It’s open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. However, please note that the entrance will be closed 5 p.m. Admission is 4,000 won for adults and the parking lot is free. So you don’t have to pay for parking 👍👍. The average temperature in the cave is 12 degrees, which is quite cold. Therefore, you’d better pack yours coat🥶🥶
