Did the cave connection tour with 2 friends. Not for the feint hearted but you don't need to be action man either. Not the prettiest cave I've been in but the scrambles and drop downs are great fun and enough to get the adrenaline going. Also great to swim in an underground lake, chilly though! Def worth doing when you... More

Wowsers, awesome 3 hours spent trekking down through the Indiana Jones-esque caves, with our great guide Mike. We did the long trek, & some parts were a bit challenging, as you have to climb & rappel down some steepish rocks & there's a few tight squeezes, but if you're reasonably fit this shouldnt be a problem. Plus our guide helped... More

Tour guides were all nice, accommodating and warm, appreciate their effort to promote tourism. The cave was not slippery even when water were flowing but they requested us to remove our shoes/slippers/sandals, to show respect to the place. Stories behind those rock formations were fascinating (i need you to go & experience it). "Leave the cave the way you found... More

Only 450 PHP (per person) odd all up once you have paid for a guide and the environmental fee. I went with a group of 4, and it was a good 3 hours from start to finish- great bang for buck! Was surprised with how deep we went. Some parts are pretty challenging, make sure you've got decent footwear/flip flops... More

The adventure was really fun alltough it's tiring and you will learn a lot from the tour guides, the tour guides are really nice and friendly,. they will share the history of the cave and their culture, but I feel bad that this place should be preserve.

You'll want a guide for sure... I did the shorter trek option and was hesitant to go when I found out there were bats and water and dark places. The bats are high, high above and you hear their "chatter" when the light from the lantern disturbs their rest but I never felt concerned once inside the cave. My absolute... More

When you go to Sagada, go all out! Avail the Cave Connection package. It was fun caving in Sagada. You learn the culture of hanging coffins while having an adventure.

Liked: the adventure and the adrenaline of finishing the trek down the cave. The formations are worth the trip. Disliked: nobody warns you beforehand how challenging the steps are. The guides will tell you in the middle of the trek that you will get muddy.

Sagada has a charm like no other. It is like being transported into another world especially if you stray 10 minutes away from the town centre. The Sumaguing Cave is just one of its appeal but just being on Sagada land is magical.
