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....

the cave connection isn't for everyone. it is a bit dangerous and very challenging but completing this task will make you feel accomplished. this activity will require you to use your whole body. there are ropes involved. you will need to stretch your arms and legs. you also have to trust your guide and you will have to step on...

From pictures at the bureau of Tourist, in the town of Sagada. The caves looked the best, when asked for easy, medium or hard and wet and none wet. One would think it is the way stated. unfortunately the easy trail was very hard and you had to past water, before you would get to the best of the stalactites.... More

this is a challenging yet fun experience. you have to be very careful moving around as some rocks are slippery and/or hard to climb. but no worries, if my senior parents and aunts were able to do it, you definitely can too! ;) just make sure your brought your aqua shoes (which i forgot). it is when you start seeing...

I really enjoyed my trip to Sumaguing Cave but visitors should be aware that it is dangerous. One of our party slipped and fell and hit her face. She ended up spending a few days in hospital. One of the things that makes this an exciting experience is that the cave does not follow European safety standards. No railings, no... More

We went here during peak season so there were a lot of tourists who did the cave connection spelunking, thus the traffic especially at the passages where only one person can fit and pass through at a time. The guides carries the lamp AKA the only source of light inside the cave.

Sumaguing Cave is beautiful but over crowded just like the major streets in Manila. You have to stop for a while to give way to others. This is beautiful because it is still alive. Stones are in perfect shape. If you want to go on CAVE CONNECTION (Lumiang-Sumaguing Spelunking), be sure that you are athletic. Lumiang is not beautiful but... More

Slippery, steep and scary but the feeling is exhilirating especially after conquering an almost 3-hr trek.

We did the cave connection with the help of our excellent guide, Rio, whom we were allocated through Saggas. We started off early so for most of our adventure, we saw no other tourists. Before the trip, we had some concerns about the safety of our 6 year old daughter, but Rio took great care of her and carried her... More
