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.

Manjanggul Cave Reviews
I love this cave as it was calmy, a little bit wet but make you comfortable after a long walk from the bus stop. I had to walk 3km or more (I think) coz my legs felt so sore, but I love the walk... more »
little bit disappointed, I wish I can see spectacular stalagmites and special lighting. but the cave very ordinary. more »
Very beautiful place. Well managed, clean and not challenging for a any person who can take a walk in a park. There are a few steps you got to take on to get down into the cave, but once there, it's all worth it...just mind your step, and your head a bit (but not really). It's a very comfortable walk down in the cave. Nice ambient vibes.
Classified as a UNESCO heritage site, this is an amazing must-see attraction on your trip to Jeju. The entire length of this lava tube is about 15km but 1km is open for public. You can see many lava rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites as well as lava textures on the floor of the cave. It is relatively an easy walk but not suitable for wheelchairs.
