#3 of 114 in Things to do in Jeju
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 .

  • It is soooo dark in the cave. You couldn’t see the formations or well anything except the puddles of water. I have been to other caves before and they had dramatic lighting that shows off the details....  more »
  • Cave itself is dynamic. Pretty cool, so caution is required. Not excited near the entrance on the dark attractions are many. Stalactites from quite a distance. No place to rest it. Legroom is poor, so watch out.

  • Puts a lot of the lava tubes I’ve been to in Hawaii to shame! Long stretch of lava tube that’s dimly lit, creating a pretty cool environment. Nice ending to the tube as well with a giant dried lava pile. The tube is pretty cold (I went in April), and wet, so you definitely need to wear shoes and clothes that can get a little wet. Not ideal for kids.
  • New experience going down into a lava tube.. Be careful when walking, inside the cave is very dark, only got small dim light, lots of puddles ( not suitable if you're wearing heels), no rest stop ( only got one area to sit down at the bench at the end of lava tube). The temperature inside is quite cold. You have to walk along 2km. And watch out when going down and climbing up the stairs. Not really suitable to bring babies. Anyway great experience knowing how the lava works and how it formed up. The tickets is on 2000 won.
  • It is one of the coolest places in Jeju Island. It was marvelous to walk and discover the underground world. Everything is well preserved and it is safe. The walk is a bit long but enjoyable, the best moment to go ... is in the morning when they are about to open. The less crowded it is... you will enjoy more. Trust me.
  • Interesting geological structure. UNESCO heritage site. Good walk through lava tubes. World's largest lava awaits at the end of lava tubes. Educational and interesting. It is cool temperatures in tubes. Take a light jacket or sweater.
  • Interesting place to visit, be aware that it is around 9 degrees in the caves. It is dark, in an atmospheric way.. There is lots of water puddles and it drops water from top. Make sure to have the appropriate clothes and water proof shoes are recommended. Enjoy..
