Manjanggul (Manjang Caves)

The world's longest lave tube formed back when Hallasan was still an active volcano. The first kilometer of the tube/cave has been opened to the public and makes for one of the more interesting sites in Korea. Be sure and dress warm however - no matter the temperature outside the Manjanggul rarely gets above 10 degrees (about 50 degrees F.) on the inside. The path is relatively well-lit but a bit slippery from the humidity. Manjanggul (Manjang Caves)
