We got there by bus. It was a rainy day and the walk was like 2-3 km so we took a taxi. 5 min drive for 4$ was a very good option vs getting all wet. This was one of the highlights of my jeju trip. Walking down those amazing lava tubes. You feel so small. It's midly cold and... More

This was an exciting attraction. It takes about 1 hour to get to the end of the tube and back. The closer you get to the end the colder it gets. Also pe prepared to get a little wet, as there are drops of water falling from the top. You wont need an umbrella or anything like that. Getting here... More

You know that line movie critics love to use when it comes to B-grade chick flicks? "Have low expectations, then you'll enjoy it." The same can be said of Manjang Cave. The lava tube was not as spectacular as I expected it to be, but it did offer a few interesting sights here and there. Walking all the way to... More

Getting here was tricky, as you must take a bus from either Jeju or Segowipo and even then the bus stop is 2km from the entrance so usually taxis cruise past and you can do them a deal. It is pricey to reach and has an entrance fee (half price for youths under 25 with valid passport) but has full... More

If you love nature and have never seen any volcanic formation before, it would be worth the visit. Personally, i enjoyed walking inside the cave and having a look at the volcanic formation. It's like you can almost imagine how the lava flowed inside the tunnel a few thousand years ago :) i was in awe of how powerful mother... More

The idea is cool. I mean, yes, it's a cave formed from lava. But there's not really anything to see. It's cold and dark, and you walk for about 25 minutes to get to one end and then you turn around and walk back to the other end. The formation thing at the end is certainly the coolest part, but...

We reached the cave 45 minutes before closing hour and had to walk really fast in order to reach the end of the cave to see the Lava tubes. Many friends told us it's a must visit in jeju. But my Cousin and I were disappointed as we felt it's nothing fascinating. Better time could be spent in other attractions... More

Despite the heat, its very cooling inside the cave. Took a walk and I find that it was smaller than what I expected. Path is quite rocky and its good to wear proper shoes instead of sandals or slippers. It can be quite slippery too. Its good to visit but if you are tight on your schedule I think you... More

It was a hot day so felt great to get away from the heat and descend into the cave. It felt about 10 degrees colder so be prepared with a light jacket. As with all caves, this has rocky wet floors that are very treacherous for those without proper track shoes. Very interesting signboards with geographical information about the formation... More

In the summer heat, Manjanggul is the perfect place to escape the heat. It's quite cold inside, and water drips from the ceiling. I changed into jeans and a light sweater before going in, which was perfect. The texture of the cave is fascinating! There are good informational English placards that explain how the cave formed. The floor of the... More
