Good but not spectacular

It was a nice place to visit , not spectacular but it is a unique place, this could be the last place to visit if you already visited other places before in Jeju.

The most impressive thing to do in Jeju. I have been in many caves before but never one that has been molded by lava. It's pretty chilly once you descend so make sure you have an extra layer or two.

A very wide (23m), high (18m) and long cave (7+ km) one can walk along by yourself (about 1km is open to the public). The temperature inside is perfect, when there is a heatwave outside (which was the case in August 2016). It is doable with a small kid, however you can't bring a stroller as the surface is too...

This was one of the most exciting UNESCO sites I travelled to while in Jeju. The cave is a true demonstration of the power of nature. The walls are beautifully scarred by the movements of lava. It is definitely a place to visit for any geologist out there as well as any layperson. Not to mention, it was nice and... More

The temperature drops dramatically after you descend 15 stairs into the cave entrance. There was a cloud that had formed at the entrance due to the humidity which was really cool to see. Walked about a km to the end where there is a lava column - a frozen in time dripping of lava from above. Fascinating walk, lots of... More

It is about 20 mins walk and you can see all the marks of lava flow. Please do not forget to bring extra clothes if you are not fond of cool temperature of 20 degrees Celsius though outside temperature was over 33 degrees.

Very interesting Mother Nature Creation. It is cold in the cave so bring extra clothing along. Be careful of the uneven ground. Experience the creation yourself.. =D

My family and I visited this UNESCO World Heritage and South Korea National Monument cave on a late afternoon for 2 hours. There were not many visitors and we didn’t find any tour buses when we reached here. Getting there & fees: Manjanggul Cave is located in the north western part of Jeju-do. To get (drive) to Manjanggul Cave, key... More

We were at Seongsan Ilchulbong in the afternoon before we went to Manjanggul. It was a god decision as it was a brief respite from the scorching sun. That aside, this place is itself a gem. Well maintained and interesting facts have their own boards for the visitors to read. Light jacket is highly recommended if you don't like cool... More

This is a relatively easy to walk cave with interesting volcanic formations. You walk all the way, about a 20 minute walk ( 1 -way ) to the end to see a lava formation and walk back. It's quite cold in the cave, even with the blazing sun outside, so do bring a light jacket. Also, it may get slippery... More
