Ever since moving to Jeju, I’ve wanted to check out Manjanggul Cave. Jeju was formed from a series of volcanic activity, making the island covered in beautiful black rock. I love the coast here, but this time I wanted to go a bit deeper…literally. The lava tunnel at Manjanggul Cave is one of the largest in the world and, even though only a certain section of it is open for viewing, I thought it’d be worth the hour and a half bus ride from my town. I sure wasn’t disappointed. Although it’s a popular tourist destination, as its UNESCO ranked, I enjoyed wandering through the tunnel for an hour; however, I was lucky and it wasn’t too crowded then. If you’re ever around northeast Jeju, stop by and check it out. If you don’t enjoy it, you’re only out a dollar.
Ooohh looks so cool! I really need to get down to Jeju soon! ?
Yes, you do! Best place for eco-tourism in Korea. Come in July, when it’s not the rainy season.
This looks awesome! I going to see some caves this weekend in Samcheok but I feel like there’s no way they will match this one. Definitely gotta make it here when I come to Jeju.
Wow! Your pics do this place justice. I have been writing down a few ideas about places I hope to visit in and around Korea and you have just given me some refreshing ideas. Thanks ? Otherwise, your blog is great! I am enjoying the read while on my lunch break ?
Looks great! I’m planning to hit up Jeju mid-August, so I’ll put this on my to-do list since I love caves! I also really like that last pic of you guys. It looks like you’re in an a huge aquarium or underwater castle somewhere…..but creepily in the night.
Very jealous. Have wanted to visit Jeju since I have been here and am not sure I will be able to. Those caves look awesome!
Wow! We went to Jeju for our honeymoon but didn’t make it here! We’re thinking about going back for our anniversary this year, so if we do we’ll definitely make the trip! Looks awesome!
We have been to Jeju twice, but I actually never realized that this cave existed. That’s really awesome. Hopefully we will make it back and get a chance to check it out.
