The experience was unexpected and gently pushes your comfort zone both in climbing and zipline. Once you are done you are surprised how far you pushed yourself and feel quite proud. The guides are knowledgeable and encouraging and proceeds go to the local village who live around the base of the cave mountain. Very worthwhile ;)

Seems like ordinary ride on the way back to Puerto Princesa, Until we stopped at Ugong Rock, I've been to Berkshire Zipline, Ugong is 100% better,short but worth it. Berkshire East have beautiful lust green treetops, and longer zip lines, but the Zipping is in sitting position, this is not as good like you are suspended in a flying position...exhilarating...

I read reviews before i visited Puerto princesa, it helped me decide whether we would stop for the experience or not. Thank goodness, we decided to do it. The mountain looked small from a distance, but it was very interesting trekking up the top. they are well staffed that help is abundant in navigating difficult turns and heights. yes heights!...

Ugong Rock was an interesting place, but the way that the tour was organized leaves a lot to be desired. The tour guides did not direct their respective groups, they just let them do as they wanted. We were packed like sardines without an exit. It was hot inside the caves. This was exacerbated by some tourists who would not... More

very interesting cave experience adventure with a bit of rock mountain climbing, where majority of our group descend via their zip lines.

The place has a very good ambiance (dimmed orange lights) and they have live acoustic music in here. The food is good.

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