Summary

Oksanga is the only jade mine in Korea and the only white jade mine in the world. It was built in 1972 with the sole purpose of creating a jade mining facility. It now offers tours of the caves and even a steam sauna experience. Various jade formations along both sides of the cave lead to a long platform where visitors can stop for a break. A gift shop also offers a wide range of jades and related products at discounted prices including rings, necklaces, and even beds as well as a restaurant serving foods made with water gathered from the cave.
