Characteristics of Daegeum Cave
Daegeum Cave was found to be as old as Hwanseon and Gwaneum Caves located nearby. It was previously inaccessible because the entrance was not exposed and was opened to the public only recently as a result of a year-long exploration project of Samcheok City.
Daegeum Cave has a variety of limestone features such as speleothems and stalactite, the mineral deposit formed in caves. Since the cave remained untouched for a long time since its creation, it has been preserved in good condition.
In particular, a large amount of water flows inside the cave whose water source is unknown, and there are many underground lakes and waterfalls of varying sizes inside.
In addition, Daegeum Cave is a new tourist spot. You can also take a stroll in the Ecological Park set against a backdrop of scenic beauty and ride the monorail bike that takes tourists as far as 140m inside the cave. There is also a visitor center where you can learn more about the significance of the cave as cultural property.
