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.

  • This stop was part of a tour. We visited a section of the lava tube, which was safe, and also had bridges to walk on at certain sections inside the tube. Our guide explained background and history...

  • Interesting place to visit. The rock formations inside are beautiful and unique. It is a little cold, wet and damp inside. Make sure to wear a jacket and have walking shoes. Classified as a UNESCO heritage site, this is an amazing must-see attraction on your trip to Jeju. The entire length of this lava tube is about 15km but 1km is open for public. You can see many lava rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites as well as lava textures on the floor of the cave. It is relatively an easy walk but not suitable for KIDS. There is an entrance fee to go inside but it was well worth the visit. There are ample free parking before the entrance.
  • This cave is roughly 700m long (though longer, but not available for the public) - and gets immediately cold when you enter! So bring a jacket or a sweater. The tunnel is full of information - but at the end - it’a mostly a dark hole. Many tourists on weekend. Also there is an entrance fee.
