Enjoyed every bit of the spelunking and most of all the zipline! It was very affordable at 500 or so pesos.

So nice to experience rocks in a whole different way. Did you know some make sounds? The small tour was humorous and fun. And of course, we did Zip-line, Superman position. Try before you die!

The place is an open air restaurant. You can pick yourself the seafood you want to eat. For us it was crab. The other dish was a very decent cheeseburger. There was live music with a guitar player and a female singer. This gave a relaxed yet lively atmosphere. Service was efficient (and patient!), the waiter was super friendly and... More

Ugong Rock is a less famous place than the Underground River but it is definitely just as fun, or even more so. Ugong Rock is located in a very scenic field surrounded with rice paddies and tall mountains, a view that one would really enjoy once once has already has climbed the rock.

Nice stop on the way to one of the tours of the underground river. Quite pricey by standards of other places in Palawan, but a fun scramble up through the caves (via steps, ladders and some easy harnessed climbing), with nice views from the top. Ziplines down are worth the extra cost, with really impressive views from on the way... More

It was an interesting visit. Expect to wait in line while going through as it gets backed up in several points, We enjoyed the explanation of the rock formations, but mostly the zip line at the top.

It's amazing to go inside the rock and climb up to the top, and the local people are really helpful to make sure you can manage to climb, they give you gloves and helmets and show you where to place your feet and hands to help you climb, and a fantastic view and sense of achievement at the top.
