This is no mere cave, but a lava tube, and one of South Korea's greatest natural wonders. Though over 13 km long (it is the 2nd longest lava tube in the world), only 1 kilometre of the lava tube is open for visitation. Formed only around 300,000 years ago at the most, the cave is beautifully preserved, making it of great scientific interest. It contains all the features you may expect in a normal gave, with the only difference being that these are made of ancient lava - lava stalagmites and stalactites, lava columns and lava bridges and lava shelves, lava blisters and lava helictites, lava rafts and lava ropes. Furthermore, its 7.6 metre high lava column is the largest found so far. The other great feature is the colossal Stone Turtle. The lighting is dim and eerie.
There is also a museum on site, and tourists frequently confuse it with the cave entrance which it is NOT. It's still worth checking out, as it explains the cave's origins and features.

Nice place to walk... Its cold solidified magma wall gives a strange but nice feelings as you walk through it. Plus it is well maintained. The area around it also very nice if you have free time to chill.
A cool cave made from a air bubble in the lava flow. The cave has one entrance so you also use this as an exit. There are stairs down into the cave, so bear this in mind. Once you are down in the cave it's quite cold and wet. A jacket is recommended. The cave is large and very impressive in size. The whole experience can take 30-45 minutes.
Reasonable entrance fee of 2000 won. It took us about 1 hour and 45 minutes to complete the walk. Very very amazing how those lava has leave behind some very beautiful patterns on the cave. We truly enjoy it.
Really cool experience and would recommend. The cave is a bit chilly walking in and once you're in the cave there is a trail for you to walk through. There are different information signs that share more information with you in the cave. It's a bit damp and the ground is not totally smooth to walk on so need to be careful if you have small children. I had a good time but it's not a full day trip, I think max maybe an hour and a half.
This place is worth the visit. As you descend down the stairs you can feel the cool damp air engulf your body. Dark and uneven ground. But the cave is spectacular. Actually it is a lava tube.
