All starts off relatively easy with some steps and a little bit of scrambling. Then it gets more uneven and rocky, slippery and dirty so not for everyone. Thereafter it gets more difficult, more slippy and very wet. Best grip is without shoes and you need to be strong enough to pull yourself up and down some awkward spots. The... More

This is a must visit place when you go to Sagada. A 300 ft below the ground according to our guide and you can see great rock formations, the cave has its 3 phase, Phase 1 was a tricky one, you have to gets passed the huge stones with the bat poops and pees (which was okay with me) Just... More

It was quite challenging knowing that there are parts that are slippery and are very technical. The first few minutes were passing through holes, bending and using of your body strength both upper and lower. A stretching is needed and if you are claustrophobic or if you're afraid of the dark, this activity is not suitable for you. We did... More

Unlike other caves where I have been before, Sumaguing goes down instead of the usual horizontal direction. The water inside is clear and cold. It is quite an experience dipping. The rock formations are picturesque

It was so challenging to do the cave connection. We had our tour guide from saggas, it cost us 800 (400/head). We entered the lumiwang burial cave and will exit in sumaguing cave (cave connection). Before we went here, I read reviews about the spelunking in sumaguing cave and based from the reviews it took them for 5-6 hours. It... More

If you want to try spelunking then this is where you should go. The rocks are slippery but our guides were very professional so we did not had a hard time understanding and applying their instructions. The water is cold but it serves a purpose after taking a dip when you feel tired.

Knowlegeable guide. They were helpful and knew the place. The only thing it would have helped if they told us that wearing gloves would be a very big help
