Valley of Gangala, Nanjo

4.2
#2 of 14 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.

  • I can't go on a tour only. Great gathering places cave Cafe, which is. Beware that the water drops from the top. I got a bottle and explained at the beginning, mosquito repellent lotion with tea. Because it make inroads into the shoulder water bottle, string backpack pocket, took off. Continue seeing unusual plants, caves, etc. Banyan tree for me was a very mysterious place. Guide to whats taking pictures.

  • 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.
