The majority of caves in Korea are located in Jeju-do (제주도) or Gangwon-do (강원도) Provinces. Each one has a unique appeal for example, the Daegeumgul Cave (대금굴) was only just discovered in 2003. The Hwanseongul Cave, at 6.5 km, is the biggest lime stone cave in Korea and has incredible stalagmites, stalactites and about 10 lakes and waterfalls!

Gossi Cave is named after the Go family, who took refuge there during the Japanese invasion of Korea. Hwaam Cave (화암동굴) used to be a gold mine that was commercially operated from 1922 to 1945. The nation’s 5th largest goldmine was, however, found to have natural stalactites, and later the cave was developed into a theme-based cave that combined gold and nature. The island of Jeju is home to several UNESCO World Heritage sites including Manjanggul Cave (만장굴), one of the longest lava tunnels in the world.
