A 30 m tall (98.5 ft) and 23 m (75.5 ft) wide lava tube penetrating more than 13 km (8 mi) into the earth, Manjanggul Cave makes up part of a World Heritage Site sheltering exceptional volcanic rock formations and wildlife. Observe the world's largest lava column standing 7.6 m (25 ft) tall, and a stone shape resembling Jeju Island. Part of a larger lava tube system, the cave features the greatest number of living creatures of all tubes on the island, including bats and the Jeju cave-spider. Formed 200,000-300,000 years ago, the tunnel remains remarkably well-preserved with lava stalagmites and stalactites and cascades of funky flowstones. Watch the slippery steps and dress for 10 C (50 F). Add Manjanggul Cave to your Jeju travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Jeju online journey planner .

  • 2000 won Cave the height and go down the stairs pay. Is better combed umbrellas were up a rugged but so good walking shoes, rainy day, rainy day falls a lot of drops of water from the ceiling, so some people will suffer a scarf head-dress with hood and Cap. Turtle (turtle shape) to the last column (hashiranoyou) by the way u turn 1 kg is. You cannot use this still goes on.

  • Manjanggul cave is formed from volcanic lava flow in Jeju. Tourists can follow the natural caves that are still visible along the approximately 1 km. There are pretty views in it, a former lava flow that is left along the walls of the cave, stalatit and stalagmite, batubatu mound of cave, as well as carvings on the wall and the base of the cave that is formed from the former lava flow

  • This is an amazing place to visit. There are stairs that take you into the lava tube, and then you can walk about one kilometer. It is somewhat dark, but there are lights, and your eyes adjust. It is fascinating to see how the lava flow created this tube. There are plenty of signs that explain the geological features, and they are written in several areas. There are no restrooms in the tube, but there are some near the entrance. There is a gift shop and a cafe. I think this is worth making the effort to visit.
  • When you think about why and how the cave exists, it's really amazing. But when you're inside, it's mostly just a long dark tunnel. There are cool geologic formations, but again the concepts (flowing lava, giant boulders, etc.) are cooler than they look.
  • Its cold down there and its an awesome natural lava tube cave. Nothing much to see, its all rocks. But I'm awe at how on earth that tube was naturally made. Awesome place to visit.
  • Very unique cave. We spent around an hour and a half inside. There is only 1 linear path (approx 1km) open to the public, but the floor is uneven and there are lots of cool things to see inside. Also it's quite dark as there are only a few lights illuminating the area.
  • Great place for an outing. As long as you take it slow and watch where you put your feet you will be mesmerized by the cave. Don't forget to visit the maze nearby too.
