It is a must visit place in the mountains of Sagada. The community charges a small fee but it is well worth the price. We found the sands to be metalic and the trip underground to be cool in temperature. Our guide Steve Rodgers was a great guide and has lived in Sagada for a long time. We did many... More

I'm not a good climber and did not know what I was getting into, but made it through all the same. Definitely worth it: you can't deny the beauty of the inner caves. You can also swim there! Average difficulty: hard if you're a beginner, easy if you're experienced. Bring good shoes that can get wet.

First things first, NEVER be in Sagada on a public holiday and dont try the Sumaguing cave on its peak season. The line there are number of people will be comparable to MRT lines of people queues. It will be an adventure!! Though i didnt get to finish it, coz I got scared of the dark haha. But I will... More

Most likely the best "non technical" cave I've ever done, far from the usual 5 min walk underground with mechanical stairs... The first part of the cave is a bit of a pain, but once you enter the second section, it's all about adventure :) walking down the cave is really fun and spectacular. The only issue I would say...

My visit to the cave was the best adventure I had in a lifetime.. The cave was amazing and i was in awe at this nature's creation.. I could not understand how the cave got rocks that seemed to magnet our steps and hold us place so we will not fall.. Despite the absence of sunlight, there are no moss..... More

The entrance to Sumaguing Cave pretends to be innocuous, simple and bereft of any barkers. Down a few steps however, when the guide hands over flashlights and start giving instructions on how to take ginger steps to avoid that slippery and dangerous fall to the dark ravine below you know a thrilling adveture is to begin. And it does. We... More

You should definitely do this when you're in Sagada! It's well worth the hiking and climbing. Make sure you have waterproof bags/plastics for your personal effects.

This for me was the best part of our tour in Sagada where one can explore the beauty of the cave. We chose to have normal caving as we were in a group of travelers but if it was just me, I would've chosen cave connection. Oh well, there's always next time. It kinda reminded me of Underground River in... More
