Manjanggul Cave, Jeju
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
萬丈窟入面很凍很濕，溫度只有12.4度C，濕度是99.9%，參觀要著多保暖衣服。 入面很黑，而且要行很耐才可以到最深處，值得參觀 more »The cave is very beautiful, the degree is only 12.4 degrees C, the degree is 99.9%, and you want to keep warm clothes. The face is very dark, and to be very resistant to the deepest, worth
チェジュ島の東側に位置していて、チェジュ市内から車で50分ほど。 洞窟の中は、自然のまま残してあるそうですが、とても広い。 全長は、とても長いそうですが歩きやすい1kmほどを片道約30分くらいで歩くコースです。ゴツゴツした足場なので、スニーカーがオススメ。1kmの終点みたいな所に、自然にできた、塊の様な物があり、そこまで見たら、同じ道を引き返して来るようになってます。中は当然、くらいですがスポット... more »It is located on the east side of Jeju Island, a 50-minute drive from Jeju City. The inside of the cave seems to be left as nature, but it is very wide. The length of the course is very long, but it is a walking distance of about half an hour. Because it is a lumpy scaffold, sneakers are recommended. In a place like the end of 1km, there is a thing like the mass which can be done naturally, and when seeing there, it comes to turn back the same road. Of course, it is in the light in the spotlight.
Supposed to be largest lava cave in the world. Only about 1km is open to public. Very dark inside. There's informative signs along the way regarding different aspects of the cave. Really cool experience and would recommend. The cave is a bit chilly walking in and once you're in the cave there is a trail for you to walk through. There are different information signs that share more information with you in the cave. It's a bit damp and the ground is not totally smooth to walk on so need to be careful if you have small children. Visitors should note that the path is uneven, wet and tend to be slippery. Nonetheless it is still manageable when proper footwear is worn.I had a good time but it's not a full day trip, I think max maybe an hour and a half. Definitely recommend going as soon as it opens at 10. Very calm and easy to take your time with no other people around. About 1030~1100 it was getting pretty crowded. Nice for half-day trip. The cave itself isn't so "amazing" as it simply two kilometers (one each way) path in dark atmosphere (and cold so bring some cover). Would recommend combining it with the "maze land"
Walk in an actual lava tube. A bit dark inside but great photo opportunities. Not suitable for people with mobility issues. Wear sturdy shoes. You walk down stairs, then in for 1 km and walk back 1 km.
