This cave is very centrally located- in a parking lot in town. The price is cheap, and they do make you wear a helmet, so we brought our own caving helmets and they did not object. The cave is not that large, we toured the...More

The cave is right in the city and is convenient to highways and hotels. It takes about 45 minutes to walk the cave. But, you have to watch your head as the clearance is very low. The structures found within are really cool to see.

Nice sight for a couple of hours. Very easy to access, as it is located in the middle of city. Entrance fee was very cheap. If you want to see a bigger (huge) version of limestone cave, head inlands towards Taebaek and Samcheok, there is...More

The Cheongok cave is pretty close to the city center, 10-15 min walk from the hotel cluster southeast of the main traffic circle. It is easy to find, the entrance features a parking lot, a little pagoda and a small shop. There is also a...More

Korea has a lot of caves worth visiting, and this one is also worth the trip. 3,000 for an adult ticket. You have to wear a helmet before entering, which I'm thankful for as I bumped my head a number of times. I'm not particularly...More
