So proud to tell you that Lobo Cave is one of the beautiful caves of the Philippines. On my first visit to this cave, we spent almost seven (7) hours exploring its undeground rivers, canyons, stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone, chandeliers, helectites, mud hills, forest stalagmites, underground falls, etc. Try to visit this cave by contacting Jose Abesamis Bonifacio of Trexplore Adventure...

WOw. Had an absolutely amazing day in this cave with Joni from Trexplore who is based in Catbalogan city. Great guide, with fantastic knowledge of the cave and you always feel safe and secure. Such an amazing variety of things under the earth!

I recently visited Lobo Cave with Joni Bonifacio from Trexplore. I've been to caves in other countries that have cemented pathways and guide rails, that are so easy (and a bit boring) that they don't require guides, and aren't really an adventure. But Lobo cave is nothing like that, it was way better than anything I did overseas! The cave... More

Joni Bonifacio, our tour guide from Trexplore, was amazing! He thought of everything to make our short time in Catbalogan worthwhile. Joni met us at the Grand Tours terminal, took us straight to his outdoor shop and off we went on our caving adventure. We didn't have to bring anything - no cash, camera, nor safety gear. Joni took care... More

I was really taken aback by the sheer size of this cave, which took a good 5 hours or so of solid exploration to see all the various sub-levels - and this isn't even the biggest one in the area. For visitors who have visited the caves in Sagada, this is on par with that experience (although rather more professional),... More

Close to Catbalogan, this is another cave system waiting for exploration. We were the only people in the cave, together with our guide Joni A. Bonifacio from Trexplore and one carrier. He knows the local caves by heart. Without a local guide you wouldn't even find the entrance. Inside the cave, we had to swim a lot. But the water... More
