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.

Donghae is a small town without much to do in the winter and early spring time. This cave is one of its few attractions located in the center of the city. Inside the cave everything is well lit and has a metal pathway with rails...More

Nothing special as compared to the bigger caves. Height may be a problem as you may get knocked if not careful. Not to worry as they are helmets available before you enter. The only highlight was that it is in the middle of Donghae city...More

If you have been to other caves, then this one is nothing special. If you haven't seen many caves, then by all means take a look. We were in Donghae in the heat of summer, so it was a nice escape from the heat.There were...More

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
