Climbing Ugong Rock was a fun and beautiful experience. The path is not that hard to go through but will still request some efforts. The zip line activity is a perfect way to enjoy the view.

Initially didn't want to do this activity from the reviews I read but since our tour guide made a pit stop here we decided to give it a go. I am claustrophobic and have a fear of being stuck in small spaces and fear of stairs so I was really worried about the caving part. We watched a movie about... More

Trekking and rock climbing is one of the activities that will really measure your physical capacity in this adventure. A must try for thrill seekers and wants to try this even once. There are openings that at first you would think that your body won't fit it but by following the guide you will be able to pass that obstacle.... More

You dont really see the size of what they call a rock lol....its a mountain i swear. Tons of time for selfies and area shots plus the guide has no problem taking photos for you and he is very friendly and knows his stuff, he is always making sure all in the group are safe. The heat n the outside... More

The opportunity to spelunk our way up the rock was a unique experience but what I love most is the zipline.

This facility was put together by the locals to bring in business to their community which is located along a tourist route. Its a climb up a small hill near their village, which supposedly has religious significance for them, followed by a quite exciting flying-fox ride back down in a rope sling. The latter is well worth doing if you... More

There is a cave you can explore in this area. Level of difficulties : Beginner. At the end of the cave, you will reach at the top of the hill and you can try flying fox to get down from the hill (of course need to pay for the flying fox).

Because people always find the Kinabuch Restaurant alluring, Ugong Rock, a few steps away, is a good alternative to those looking for a place to unwind... It has live music and not so crowded. The food is fine, I ordered a tuna dish and butterred prawns. The tuna, just like sashimi, melts in your mouth. Worth a try.

great for adventure seekers and nature lovers, the pathway inside is so natural with a little climbing, crawling and at the top you'll go down through zipline. and its maintained by the locals, I'd recommend this site as a sidetrip for those going to underground river

We visited this as a side trip coming back from the Underground River, and it is the typical Philippino way where the tour guide is trying to get a bit more of the money slice from visiting tourists. In this case, I was quite impressed. The climb inside the rock to the top is interesting and ok for most people... More
