Valley of Gangala, Nanjo

4.2
#2 of 13 in Parks in Nanjo
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.

  • Deprived of eyes in the photogenic cave Cafe, decided to participate in the tour. Cave Cafe is in a secluded location, sold drinks and beer. After a description of the tour at the back of the cafe's a jungle tour. Description of the plants of tropical Banyan tree while walking along the promenade, also enters the cave. Excellent expedition passed one group oil lamps in the cave, a little. Funeral mitake also walks through the woods like the atmosphere. Knowledge of plants that can be seen the excavation of archaeological sites, so there is another fun,. Cave Cafe puts free and jungle tours are not interested in people who may also use Cafe only.

  • Gangler Valley are going another 10 times or more. Freaky feeling when going down from the parking lot still remains. It's like landscape, such as the island of Lanai.

  • ~2000yen is a bit pricey and the 350 yen coffee was just plain...nothing special, but one of the few places in Japan to see stalactites. Worth a visit.
  • Personal and informative tour of the historic valley and interesting background. ¥2,200 per person. Complimentary cold ice tea is furnished for each person in bottle with strap along with mosquito repellant lotion. Audio tour isn't reliable. English isn't available from tour guide only Japanese. Still very hot and humid even during 930 am tour.
  • Really cool place to hide from the sun. Prices are okay.
  • 90min tour. Japanese guide and multilanguage info text. Very beautiful scene!
  • Tour is only in Japanese but you may choose either and audio or reading guide.
