It was quite challenging knowing that there are parts that are slippery and are very technical. The first few minutes were passing through holes, bending and using of your body strength both upper and lower. A stretching is needed and if you are claustrophobic or if you're afraid of the dark, this activity is not suitable for you. We did... More

Unlike other caves where I have been before, Sumaguing goes down instead of the usual horizontal direction. The water inside is clear and cold. It is quite an experience dipping. The rock formations are picturesque

Before we went here, I read reviews about the spelunking in sumaguing cave and based from the reviews it took them for 5-6 hours. It... More

If you want to try spelunking then this is where you should go. The rocks are slippery but our guides were very professional so we did not had a hard time understanding and applying their instructions. The water is cold but it serves a purpose after taking a dip when you feel tired.

Knowlegeable guide. They were helpful and knew the place. The only thing it would have helped if they told us that wearing gloves would be a very big help

We hiked down to this cave after visiting a cave with the hanging coffins. It was just a short distance walk about 15 mins. This cave is amazing. You'll love it when you get deeper into the cave. Great experience.
