Valley of Gangala, Nanjo

(360+ reviews on the web)
Cave Nature / Park
Walk down a mystical route at Valley of Gangala, a valley formed after the collapse of a limestone cave. The forested valley has inspired a number of myths and folk tales, and legend has it that spirits dwell in this secluded area. Tall trees and bamboo grow out from the foot of the valley to join the forest above, with the dramatic rock formations of the valley walls blending with the foliage to create impressive scenery. A limestone cave offers another layer of mystery and magic (and a cafe) to your adventure. Put Valley of Gangala into our Nanjo holiday planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Nanjo.

  • Interesting open cave. Enjoy meals and drinks inside it. There is a tour that takes you further inside the cave
  • I hope that you will be able to see the nature that has a primitive life history site fully preserved.
  • The cave cafe didn't offer much to eat only coffee and ice cream. The tour was neat but long because to all the talking.
  • Access to the cave which is required reservation or walk in to buy a ticket, they will have a guide tour
  • Spectacular tour with some amazing facts and history.
