Valley of Gangala, Nanjo

4.2
#2 of 10 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.

  • Valley of gangler's number 100000 years ago remains where the cave was collapsing, a natural subtropical forests. It is available only on guided tours. Area of the Valley is about 14500 square meters, the walking distance is about 1 km. This is a tour of about one hour and 20 minutes. Tours must be booked in advance on the WEB. Fee 2200 Yen in Okinawa (1 adult) of pristine forest and the Dou (worship Center) is mysterious. Feel rich in oxygen and big banyan tree, feel the magical power. And ruins of ancient minatogawa man has been discovered one after another from the Valley of gangler here say. This is the ancient roots of Japanese might. Excavations were ongoing throughout. I feel romantic.

  • We have changed or does not come from the book on the net and I arrived 30 minutes early is going to cave Cafe reception before the tour is available in. Went without much previous knowledge commentary is very good and easy to understand! Dig and dig up this history as well as teaching with a panel that was studied. Closeness to the minatogawa man is up to. Was impressed by the tour description gangler gratuitous speaks at the echo effect, or bother with oil lamps into the cave really well-written. From young children to the elderly will, everybody can enjoy. Takes a little price but its worth.

  • Book a tour spot at least a day in advance, since there are only four groups per day! The cafe itself is a nice spot, but I wasn't able to check out anything else.
  • 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

Where to stay in Nanjo

Like in most cities in Okinawa, Nanjo offers a contrast of basic lodgings and expensive, fancy resorts. Hotels tend follow the coastline south and east of Nanjo, with luxurious options perched on the hilltop above the city offering views of Nakagusuku Bay. Bed & breakfast-type pensions are the most common mid-range options, but you can also find inexpensive "ryokan" (traditional guesthouses) close to the beach. Inexpensive guesthouses can be found on Ojima Island, just off the coast and accessible via bridge.
