We spent a wonderful few hours working our way through the cave system. The route was challenging enough to make it fun but not too challenging for our inexperienced party. Our guides were fantastic; entertaining, friendly and extremely competent. We were able to take some great photos of the beautiful rock formations and avoided getting too wet!

Cliff, sharp rock edges, slippery, cold and most of all magnificent that's what I had in this cave. You'll get nervous and might want to back out at first but when you're in the middle of cave you'll be surprised by its majestic beauty. Indeed Its a great once in a lifetime achievement when you got to finish the cave... More

It's not like the movie "The Descent"... no monsters of some sort. This cave offers you a magical adventure! I loved every bit of this experience. There were some parts that I thought I wouldn't fit through as I am a bit on the chubby side but I did :) (or else I wouldn't be writing this). Saw some awesome... More

I've done this trek twice already but this time it is with my whole family so it was more exiting. Don't look up as you might just get pooped on by the bats!

One of the things i admired most there are the tour guides..they're such a great help & honest (dedication on their job).. During our spelunking activity i am the weakest link buddy out of 19 so,i felt all the pressure (self pressuring)..But all these feelings disappeared after touring 4.5 hours inside and upon seeing all those aged stones which you've...

The trek down below is a bit easy for us though slippery. It's our first spelunking activity with all members of my family. I was so amazed with the stone formation inside the cave e.g. turtle's head, the cave, king's chamber, the pregnant woman, the alligator's head, etc. If you plan to explore this cave, wear only slippers. As a... More

Spelunking is not for everyone specially for claustrophobic like me. I tried but the smell of the guano, the slippery steps and my wet clothes and condition after a heavy rain prevent me from going through the cave. One thing great about trying to do it was that the guide was very understanding if issues, such were our concerns, arose.... More

Dangerous but perfect for adventure seekers. A lot of portions are very dark with light only coming from the guide's lantern. The guides are helpful and very informative.

Three friends and I had planned on taking a vacation from a stressful work and talked about going south like Puerto Princesa but ended up going to Sagada for an adventure. I did research on what can be seen in the place and what to expect, but what we experienced is just Amazing. The Place is a small town where... More
