Valley of Gangala, Nanjo

(4.3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Enjoy the long historical mood! … And could understand I don't know, but a beautiful jungle. Guide me, I came across strongly feels that comedians like, anyway we entertain. Unfortunately the foreign minority participation was corrected-少欲 English description! It was good if you have guided tours for foreigners or felt like it. If location is found from people all over the world, and good thought.

  • I only go for a coffee but very relaxing and enjoying. If you have time, it will also be good for the guided tour.  more »
  • Stepping into that space and really feel difference in air! Mystery nature over the years slowly touched obediently. Gaydtour so make sure book is required. Exit is just for every adjacent Okinawa world Snake Park around so if you have time, have also undermined world. Naha Steve if routes BA is 40 minutes from asahibashi station. Hand is negotiating the taxi number less charges adults 550 yen, so we get families, usually have between 3,000 and a little cheaper.

  • Interesting open cave. Enjoy meals and drinks inside it. There is a tour that takes you further inside the cave
  • 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
  • Highly recommended. Enjoy a walk through the nature. Professional staffs who looks out for visitors' safety.
  • You can't get in unless you join the tour which is entirely in Japanese. It's nice but not that amazing. Good to visit if you have time or you're around the area.
