My partner and I had a great trip to Danyang and visited the Gosu caves in our time there. The caves are reachable by walking from Danyang town - it’s about 15/20 minutes walk from the main bus terminal.
Entry is 11,000 WON each (quite expensive), and all of the signs and information boards are in Korean, so don’t expect any English.
That being said, this didn’t impact our experience too much and we thoroughly enjoyed walking through the caves, which took about 45 minutes. I am usually fairly claustrophobic, but I was completely ok here, despite some areas being a little tight for me (although I’m 6ft3).
If you are in Danyang, I would say definitely do this activity, but don’t go out of your way to come here if you don’t plan on coming to Danyang.

I have been to numerous caves, but have never been able to experience one like the Gosu Cave. The pathway sends you up and down and through every beautiful feature of this cave. You work your way up some narrow areas to be dazzled by an array of columns. Then back down and over for a bunch of "bacon strip" ribbons. This is a narrow cave and I loved how we were able to access so much of it through the the walkways and stairs.

It was chilly and wet in the cave. However, because of all the stairs, I actually wished I left my coat in the ticket office because I became warm fast. There are a lot of restaurants and trinket shops by the cave so you have options before or after your visit.

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.
