Though suprisingly not well-known, Korea has many excellent caves. Most of these caves are found in Gangwon-do and Cheungcheongbuk-do. Danyang, Samcheok, Taebaek, Yeongwol, and Pyeonchang are all cities that are nearby unique caves.

Gosu cave is easily visited from Danyang. Gosu is not huge, but the formations are spectacular. I enjoyed an hour of two of taking in the beautiful stalagmites found here. Besides the caves, Danyang itself is an attractive small city with plenty of activities to keep yourself occupied.

The cave is big, not huge. The formations are nice, but not very vell lit or enhanced. The structure for the walkway seem fairly big in comparison. Some of the passages are low, but a friend of mine who is 202 cm long and weights over 120 kg walked through it all.
The walk is however quite a lot up and down on stairs and the temperature was 12 C (outside about 5 C), so don't be overly warmly dressed or you'll end up sweating a lot (like we did).

The cave in itself may not be so much different from other caves I've visited (although quite beautiful), the walking part of this visit was the most fun part. This cave has extremely narrow and steep alleys, sometimes forcing visitors to creep and crawl on their knees.

This cave is quite an unique experience for city dwellers, it felt like an adventure meandering through the narrow passages and squatting through certain parts of the low ceiling. The entrance to the cave is after a certain flight of steps, it was very cooling during the entire journey at a constant 15 degree celsius. If you are worried about the cold, you don't really have to as all the climbing and squatting will result in your sweating and heating up.
I would say worth a visit if you are in the area. However, would not build an itinery around the cave, it would be more of a since we are here might as well look at it.

If you are a friend of caves, this is a good one to see. It is much larger than I anticipated, with a lot of variety. Wear a rain coat and sturdy shoes that won't slip on the wet. Some of the spaces are very tight and require twisting on stairs--best for the able-bodied, but I think there are accessible paths, too. You get gloves at the entrance--they helped through some of the tighter spots. The formations were amazing. Most of the explanations are in Korean, very few in English. It's still worth seeing.

GOOD POINTS:
1. This is for the not-so extreme explorers. The cave has a single entrance-to-exit route. The walk-thru is on metal pathways with safety railings. They have lights, signs and descriptions at each stop.
2. The well-designed route and facility is good for groups of children and old people. I can also recommend this for the solo traveller who wants to explore the place alone.
3. It’s perfect for a summer trip because the cave is cold inside. Prepare for the Winter though, you might freeze inside. ☃️

POINTS TO CONSIDER:
1. Wear the right shoes. It can get slippery inside but wearing gum-sole or rubber shoes will solve that problem. Also, you’ll save money by not renting shoes that they offer at the market entrance.
2. It can get crowded at certain times of the day. So make way for others when taking pictures or else you’d cause an unnecessary traffic jam.
3. This is not for the extreme cave explorers or spelunkers. No crawling, swimming or being covered with mud.

I visited here while staying with friends. I took the bus from their place. Ok made sure to have it written in Korean, as the buses only have Korean writing. Luckily someone made sure I got on the right bus. The bar area had touristy shipping and other things. The cave is up and down and narrow in some places. They give you gloves at the entrance for security. It's cool but not cold. Took maybe a little under an hour. The return bus stop is at the end of the parking lot towards town.

This is the best and the biggest cave in Danyang-gun. Lots of visitors come to see.

- The entrance was 11,000 won which is high for a cave. But, it is not expensive for the experience.
- There are free lockers at the entrance.
- There's not a risky area and a helmet is not necessary. The only tough part is a spiral steps downwards.
- Many kinds of stalactites. Good chance to learn.

The walk is pretty long, but all the species mentioned to "live there" propably lived there in the time before the metal walkways and railings. After visiting a few caves before this one, wasn't too exciting here. The price 11kW feels a bit too much
