Korea, Jeju island : 만장굴

En français
The next day it hopefully wasn't raining anymore so I started early in the morning to go visit 만장굴 (Manjanggul) lava tube. As it name says, 만장굴 is a lava tube, which means that the lava was moving trough that rock tube underground leaving traces on the wall, floor and ceiling due to the change of temperature and pressure. It presents nice features such as lava stalactite, lava column, lava toes....
The lava tube is made of a succession of thin and wider caves. It is part of UNESCO World Heritage sites.
