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.

  • Guide with spots for both discovery and reason why excavations of the cave and Banyan trees, 20000 years ago mankind minatogawa man is currently in progress. Total distance about 1 k. Dynamic, compact exploring mood. As seen in the ruins of the Asian wild taste of the Banyan tree long who wandered into the jungle was untouched. Be aware that insects attack during the summer. Provides mosquito repellent is the weak recommended available at their own expense. So will indebted to all full admission is ¥ 2,200 per person I think is a little bit surprised because most of the historical monuments in the South was ¥ 300 South nature worth to non-experienced. So in hindsight and okinawaworld next to the same administrator? Was published comparatively recently that taught driver's cab. I thought that was undisclosed place like this still has potential, Okinawa.

  • The cave cafe didn't offer much to eat only coffee and ice cream. The tour was neat but long because of all the talking.
  • the walking takes 1 hr 20 mins. If you request english guidance it’ll be 3,000¥
  • Nice to drop by. Not only the cave view but some other interesting things
  • ~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.
