Valley of Gangala

Valley of Gangala is a subtropical forest that originated when a limestone cave collapsed hundreds of thousands of years ago. The valley occupies an area of about 47,995 square meters, and the distance to walk through the valley is about one kilometers. You can experience an ancient natural environment in the valley where there are large trees called “Giant (Ufushu) Gajumaru trees” known as the wise men of the forest as well as the Inagu Cave and the Ikiga Cave. A full-time guide accompanies tours through the valley in order to protect the abundant nature which is highly valuable to both archaeology and folklore science. The time required to take the tour is about one hour 20 minutes.

    The most unique thing about this cafe is the setting. Beware of the drippings from the stalactites!The cafe serves coffee and drinks only.
  • Drinks & ice cream

    Nice coffee shop just before the entrance to the valley. Mostly serving drinks like coffee, tea and various juices, also offers decent ice cream. Nice seating area in a pleasant shade from the cave.
  • Waiting for the Tour - enjoy the Cave Cafe

    Have a coffee, or ice cream or buy some souvenirs. It is quite interesting having a cafe in a cave with umbrellas to stop the cave dripping water on you.
