Introduction : Gossigul Cave located in Yeongwol-gun, Gangwon-do Province is a limestone cave almost 6 kilometers long. Its name came from the story that the Go family took refuge here during the Imjin War (1592-1598). Inside the cave, there are stalactites, stalagmites, four lakes, three falls, and six open spaces that have formed over the past 400 million years. In addition, there are about twenty-four microorganisms that inhabit the cave. Spots where the Go family made fires can still be seen. Visitors can enjoy various facilities nearby such as an amusement park, shops for traditional local products, traditional restaurants, and accommodations.
