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

Take the Sumaguing-Lumiang cave connection (3.5 - 4 hour hike), it's a challenging and thrilling experience not for the faint of heart. Climbing over huge boulders, using ropes to climb through narrow holes, crossing a large mini lake inside the caves. Our unlucky star saw us crossing rocks fresh with bath dung and no way around it. Do not try... More

On my visit - it was a bit expensive because we chose not to share our itinerary. Trip Ticket was 500/guide and 250/van for two people. It can be distributed to 4ppl. It was dark, slippery but full of thrill - we are careful not slip because it will be one hell of an accident. Our guide Darren was removing... More

After exploring a few caves in and out of the Philippines, we decided not to get our hopes up, as some caves we've been to were disappointing. We got out permit and it was very easy. Humphrey was our guide and he was very polite and a bit shy. Our first stop was the view of the hanging coffins, the... More

It's a core workout and upper body workout for you have to climb, crawl and pull some ropes in entering small passages. Bring your water and some biscuits for snacks. Incredible stalactites and stalagmites formations. Very cold water will welcome you on your way.

I love Caves from the Planet Earth. I was flabbergasted looking at the crew parachuting down the really deep ones (the size of the empire state building) in South America. But I haven't been to any of the known caves in the Philippines until Sagada. The moment I saw how huge and dark the way inside the cave, I felt... More

You will go down into the cave stepping on stones, boulders, and created steps that are wet and slippery. No handrails, you have to "monkey Walk" according to the guide. One slip and you could seriously be hurt during a fall. Guide carries one old lantern, no back up, except for your cellphone led. It is about 250 steep steps... More

Very awesome! my first spelunking in the north, it wasnt that hard for me coz Ive done many hiking before though tourism org. of sagada should atleast provide safety gear for the guest especially for the children and oldies.
