Cave spelunking in Sumaguing is really amazing. We had a great time there. There are 3 phases there.. the first one is the descend part. In this phase you will need to be very careful as the rocks are slippery especially when wet. You need to wear dri-fit clother or rashguard since you will get wet on the latter part... More

Of course this is the most visited place in Sagada and the number one place to see. One has to be very careful when exploring this cave because some areas can be very slippery. Anyone who seeks adventure will love this cave as much as we did. Don't bring too much stuff with you. We met a few tourist with... More

The cave was breath taking wonderful rock formations good experience for adventure seekers be sure to be phisically fit if you want to try this adventure definately one of the best caves you can see in the philippbines. If you are extreme adventure try their cave connection interconnecting 2 caves. Worth the experience.

Indeed , it was a wonderful and very physical experience. Prepare your footwear (should be a trekking sandals, Aqua Shoes or Trekking shoes). Prepare your self physically and psychologically. It is once says that mind over body helps a lot in times of difficulties. The cave is fantastically art perfect. Do not bring so many things that will interrupt your... More

One of our best guided tours we did in Philippines. In here one definitely needs a guide if you want to do the 'cave connection'. Physically this wasn't that challenging but some of the hole were pretty small so you had to do bit of aerobics to fit in. And swimming in the lakes inside the cave is a must!

If you are going there, seeking adventure and desiring to avoid tourists, do the cave connection between 2 different caves! You will swim into underground lakes and see bats

I've been there twice already & still never ceases to amaze me. The cave is stunning & massive! The view gets even better every time you go deeper into it. It's like being transported to another world. Amazing!

It was a wonderful experience to be in one of the secret room/tunnel of the earth. The absence of light awakens all the other senses as you explore its wonders and beauty. Much more amazing is our cave guide, Kuya Bastian! His rich knowledge and awesome stories about the formations of stalagmites and stalactites made our journey memorable- and the... More

We actually had the cave connection so this was the last part of the cave. It was mind blowing how the rock formation was made throughout the years. They have ropes to help you climb up. The rock looked slippery but no it's not. The water is so clear, I'd love to swim but it's too cold. All in all,... More

This is where my caving experience happened. I got hurt here and I still have the scars on my knee but for me it is worth it, in exchange for the experience.
