My guide convinced me last minute to do the Cave connection tour as I was by myself. I am so glad I did. One of the highlights of my 3 weeks in the Philippines. It does cost P800 perguide, but you get to really go caving. There are some really narrow caves to squeeze through and you need to be... More

We did the cave connection starting at Lumiang Burial Cave and will end to Sumaguing Cave. It took us about 4-5 hours to finish the adventure but on the peak season it will take you 6 hours (as our tour guide said). You need to wait on the rappelling areas if there are some groups who aren't done yet. Some... More

A bit of archeology close up. The cave entry is just 50 yards by mostly paved trail from the road. There, just within the cave sit about 50 small coffins carved from single logs. This is not like the US where reliques are carefully protected. You can, and some guides even encourage you, to get close, even touching the coffins... More

We entered (7 of us)the caves at 630am having told the guides the day before that we need to leave sagada at lunchtime. We didnt expect the sliding, going through rock holes, climbing big rocks without harness or safety gears, its good we brought our own headlamps. Not for the weak kneed or claustrophobic. We ended up on the Sumaguing... More

My hubby and I had the "connecting caves" package, which means starting or entering at one cave (Sumaguing) and ending or exiting at Lumiang cave. I got some bruises due to slipping, and was extremely tired, but it was definitely a fulfilling experience. Did not imagine myself finishing the challenge.

If you're fit enough you can go through to the big cave from here. When we checked in at the tourist centre the guide looked at us and said that style of trip - not for seniors (us at 60-65 and fit ) so we did the pair of caves instead

It is a steep and treacherous climb down to the burial cave and the handrails run out before the end so be careful and make sure you have good grip footwear. This is a quirky and unusual place with wooden coffins stacked against the wall almost as if ghey are waiting for someone to come along and move them or... More

You will be welcomed with the coffins. The tour begins from here. Rituals be done by the guide. Please respect and do your share! There is no beauty inside when you expect of stalactites or stalagmites. Its beauty lies on the obstacles that you have to surpass in order to get to Sumaguing Cave. And this is where you can...
