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

This are two main caves in Sagada, Sumaging and Lumiang. Since they are both connected the official tour guides will choose either one to begin with. In a nutshell, you get to see marvelous rock formations that resemble various things (in local lexicon, the "The king's curtain", "The gay queen", "Rice terraces", "Town hall"). There will be some climbing, rappelling,... More

The cave offers an amazing experience. It is approximately two hours of spelunking. Be ready to get wet in the cave. It offers a place of bath tub were the deepest part is around 4 feet. I love and enjoy the place. Please wear strongly-made slippers.

A visit to Sagada will never be complete without venturing to one of the best this place might offer – the Sumaguing Cave. Aptly called as the Big Cave, it is perhaps the most popular and frequently visited place here. Sumaguing Cave has the largest chamber of all connecting caves in town (there are more than 60 known caves underneath... More
