The rock climbing experience was fantastic! The guides leading the group were very helpful and encouraging for a first timer like me. Most satisfying was the view at the top.

It was a thrilling experience to trek up a mountain and go down via Zip line :) The tour is very organized upon entering the registration area, must sign a waiver form. Next is the introduction and proper gears to be distributed. Great view from inside the mountain. You'll see the rock formations just like you see in Underground River.

We stopped for awhile to Ugong rock on our way to ppur to take some pictures as a family. The formations will provide the traveller a brief overview of how Palawan island came about due to its karst formation.

200 pesos will gain you access to this rock, the money goes to building local schools in the area. The guides are fun and the climb/walk up is great, you need to be quite skinny though as some areas are difficult to climb through.

We went to Ugong Rock right after our Underground River tour. We had a lot of fun trekking and the tour was very informative. You could tap some rocks that would make an echoing sound. That's why it is called "Ugong" Rock. because of the resonance it made. But some rocks were prohibited to touch it with bare hands as... More
