This will challenge your physical and mental skills! One of the best activity that I've tried so far. This is so extreme but so fulfilling. Not for claustrophobic peeps!

At the entrance to the cave are stacks of coffins, an interesting insight into the history of the local area. The cave itself is full of natural beauty and it's authentic routes are fun to explore. The climb through the cave was challenging and we were glad for the support of our guides. It connects to the nearby Sumaging Cave... More

Good to see the wooden coffins that were carved out from logs. The place had been pilfered though as we saw several coffins from Sagada at Banaue!

No. 1 must try in Sagada. SPELUNKING!! strictly not suitable for faint-hearted ones.Since I've been to Sumaguing cave last April, my friend and I decided to take the way more extreme challenge that Sagada can offer :D. We took the cave connection, from the entrance of Lumiang cave then exit to Sumaguing cave. But first we registered our names and... More

Seems nice cave?, because we're not able to get inside the cave that connects to Sumaguing Cave. The interesting part of the cave are the coffins stacked at the entrance of the cave. I will definitely explore this cave when I have the opportunity to visit Sagada again in the future.

People flock to Sumaguing cave as is it more accessible and not that difficult. I challenge you to try Lumiang. You NEED a guide to enter this cave. And I believe that not every guide is certified to take people inside. But I may be wrong. Still, do not try to enter this without someone who knows how to navigate... More

You should try this once in your lifetime. The cave was very challenging and took a lot of my energy. Definitely an experience I will never ever forget

I am reposting this review from my review on Sumaging cave because the two caves are connected. The lumiang cave is very similar to Sumaging, except that it has no bats and less rock formations. 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... More

We had our cave connection from Lumiang cave to Sumaguing cave. And it took us more than 3 hrs to complete the hike! Thanks to our very accommodating guide who helped us a lot in going up and mostly down those slippery rocks inside the cave. A great view once you're inside. It's dark and you only have a lamp...

We did the end to end Lumiang-Sumaguing hike and what an incredible experience it was! I would recommend going for this option instead of the shorter version (going in the caves through Sumaguing entrance).
