Cheongok Cave was discovered in 1991 in the center in downtown Donghae during a development project. Since then it’s been turned into a tourist destination as the only cave discovered in an otherwise downtown area. For the geologists out there, it’s a limestone cave estimated at 400 to 500 million years old, and extends horizontally for about 1,400 meters. Cheongok Cave is a great first cave to explore in Korea. While it’s not the largest or the most to see, it’s easy to get to and worth checking out.
