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.

Nice place to visit. U walk into the tunnel until its very derp end almost 1km in..... Then finally at the end of the tunnel u will get to see the light and the only stalagmite in the entire cave... more »
It’s chilly inside and I felt the “chill” and thrill of being in an ancient lava tube. I kept imagining that long Tina ago a molten rock was flowing through this lava tube, leaving behind an intricate structures for us to understand more about earth. Don’t skip to walk to the end, the lava stalagmite is so huge and mesmerizing, it’s almost eerie feeling just to look and gaze upon it.
If you're into your geological formations or simply just walking in an underground cave this is your place to go. Super cool getting to walk a kilometre stretch of this lava tube and getting to see the different formations along the way. It can be cold underground so be prepared. The ground is rough too so be confident in your footwear!
