there are people who do this in flip flops but i was happy i had my water shoes from the underground river portion of our tour. i'm tiny (4'10") so a lot of the small or narrow parts weren't too difficult but the climbs can be steep. as for any tips: definitely choose the superman zipline.

It was a fun experience climbing up the mountain through the inside and going down via the zipline! My grandma even tried it! Truly memorable for me and my family.

On this tour we were escorted with two ladies to lead the tour and explain about things. They were extremely informative about the rock and made it an entertaining tour. I would definitely recommend zip lining down after climbing to the top. If you can't bring yourself to do it, you can always climb back down.

Ugong Rock is actually a side trip only and not part of the main activities or sites to be visited in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. This is done to help the Kaingero's in their livelihood program. However, Ugong Rock needs a bit of clean up to make it more attractive to tourists local and international. If not for the zipline, a... More

Ugong Rock was recommended by our Underground River guide, and I'm glad that we decided to do the trek / spelunking up to the top. Tapping random rocks on the way to the top to see if they made gong-like sounds was so much fun (not to mention mind-blowing!), and especially enjoyed it because of our enthusiastic guide. Such a...

You arrive and you are greeted by the workers there and they give you an orientation. There is a tour guide the whole way. You obviously have to hike and there are difficult spots like squeezing between tight rocks and going under some rocks. I suggest wearing tennis shoes. The hike to the top is about 20-30 minutes. They do... More

The destination stirs my excitement as well as humbles my spirit. The caving/spelunking activity was fun especially with our enthusiastic guide, and the zipline was exhilarating. What makes the tour special is that I was able to help the community who benefits from the project. I would definitely return and try the Base Jump.

From underground river, our tourist guide drove us to Ugong Rock. Nice place to stop by, and we decided to experience the bamboo cable bike. We already wear our harness and other safety gear. As we wait for the other guys who are at the cable bike, all of a sudden, the bike fell, and the lady on it was... More
