    Introduction
    Dangcheomuldonggul Cave, located in Jeju, is a lava tube estimated to have been formed some 320,000 years ago due to volcanic activity; it is located approximately 3 kilometers underground. With no entrance as such, the cave is not open to the general public and thus its original form remains preserved to this day, giving it a high geological value.

    Although the Dangcheomuldonggul Cave is technically a lava tube, it resembles a limestone cave due to the secondary geological formations of lime substances that have accumulated in the ground above the tube. The tunnel has a spectacular and mystical beauty with countless stalactites and stalagmites, as well as stalactite columns. The particularly thin stalactites and stalactic columns in this cave are well-known for their uniqueness and beauty. Although this is a relatively small lava tunnel, its exotic colors and the richness of the secondary topological formations make it extraordinary in terms of research value. This cave has been designated natural monument.

    * The UNESCO World Heritage inscribed Geomun Oreum Lava Tube System consists of Bengdwigul, Manjanggul Cave, Gimnyeonggul, Yongcheondonggul and Dangcheomuldonggul Caves.

    Current Status
    Natural Monument No. 384 (Designated on December 30, 1996)
