Manjaggul Cave is the 2nd World Heritage site on Jeju island which we visited. It was the first time that I had ventured into a Lava cave that was dark, damp and chilly. One had to really take note of where to walk to prevent stepping into puddles which were on the ground.
The cave was discovered by a teacher and his students who were on a field trip of the area. They used the rope that they had to measure the whole 4km of the cave. It was even said that the teacher had his wedding in the cave back then.
As you can see it was really very dark in the cave. I had to up the ISO to 12600 in order to take this shot. The lighting in the cave was very limited as there were only dim lighting on the floor to guide the way.
Looking closely you can see the stalagmites and the layers of lava marked on the wall. There must have been a lot of lava which have flown through the tunnel back then to make so many markings in it.
One of the features within this cave is this rock which resembles Jeju island. It is not known how it was formed but the resemblance is certainly uncanny.
At the end of the walk we saw one of the most lovely looking column. It look really pretty with the colored lights shining up on it from the bottom.
