The steps were very steep as expected in a mountainous place. Coffins at the very mouth of the cave can be seen already. The guide was very kind to have answered all our queries. A place for the very young and adventurous. Challenging.

We made an appointment with the guide (which is obligatory - they have flashlights and gaslamps and know where to step and where not to step) When we came back from terraces we went to the cave.

If you want adventure and fun, try going inside the cave. You might smell a foul odor when you enter the cave because of the bat poops but you will surely enjoy seeing the rock formations and the limestones inside. Don't bother dipping into the cold water, just be a kid once more and dive into the fresh water. Fit... More

A great look into a cave with some fantastic rock formations and fossils. Also informs you of the towns burial practice. A great experience for those who like an active adventure.

Well maintained trail, semi-cemented at some portions. Good lookout point for the Hanging coffins. Guides available at your hotel or check with the Tourist office. Wear good hiking shoes, bring or pick up a walking stick. (I got mine from a local who was on his way up as I was on my down. ) Inside the cave requires more... More

Will surprise you what you can do inside the cave. At first I think that I can't survive it since I'm not very an outdoor person but surprisingly, I enjoyed the whole adventure and want to go back! You will be amaze to see the rock formation inside the cave and their shapes.

We are not spelunkers but wanted to have a cave experience. This is a quick walk from the end of town. We brought head lamps and would recommend them. the guides have gas lamps and they are kind of stinky. We brought hats against bat poop. The guides were good at helping us up and down, but I would recommend... More

Quite an experience. The cave was beautiful and deep. The problem lies going back due to the long way up, :).

Most of the time I was scared. But everything paid-off. It was place to learn to trust yourself. We dipped in the pools inside the cave spell Super COLD. The guides were reliable and incredible.

Four of us girls did the Cave Connection, which actually started at Lumiang Cave and ended at Sumaguing Cave. It was a four-hour grueling adventure inside - sliding down slippery slopes, propelling ourselves up, inserting ourselves into slivers of rock, maintaining our balance walking sideways so we don't fall into a cliff of rocks and all sorts of thrilling actions....
