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.

If you're looking for some spelunking fun then this cave is the perfect one for you. The cave connections goes deep under and the icy cold waters will surprise you.

Very dark cave so it's essential that you have a good torch and strong guides. Insurance also might come in handy.

We took the group caving packing from sumaguing to lumiang cave. Cool limestone formations and its pool version makes me want to swim all over again.

Had so much fun in the cave! Tip: Head over to the tourist center and ask for Egbert. He made our caving adventure so much fun.

This cave connection in Sagada is NOT SAFE! My friends and I were dangerously stuck in Sumaging cave for an hour when a flash flood hit (caused by strong rain) and our only way out was blocked by a very strong waterfall so we had to perch on some rocks just to stay out of the water. Of course the... More

It is not enough that you just look at this place. You should try spelunking down this cave all the way to the next cave. It was such an amazing experience. I would suggest that you travel in a small group so that you do not take much time. It was really cold inside and make sure to come prepared... More

Great stalactite and stalagmite formations awaits inside. With an easy downward trek, you can experience awesome adventure. Underground streams and pools are also available for those who are willing to plunge into the cold deep.

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
