Gwangmyeong Cave

Gwangmyeong Cave is an abandoned mine that has been transformed into a fun and imaginative tourist attraction. The cave, once the site of forced labor during colonial times, was abandoned for 40 years. It was restored to honor the cave’s history and to open up a new chapter in its future. A 2 km trail begins on the underground floor and leads up to the first floor with some 50 themed attractions along the way, including Light Space, Gold Falls, Wine Cave, Wine Cafe, and the Cave Arts Center.
