The first part while going down in the cave is really, I mean REALLY slippery. We had our shoes so we decided to let them at the entrance and do the tour bare foot. You have to go slowly and surely. The most beautiful part is down the cave, impressive rock formations and water (you must go a little bit... More

The highlight of our Sagada trip was the Cave Connection Adventure: Lumiang Burial & Sumaguing Cave; the deepest explored cave in the Philippines. We finished spelunking in 3.5 hours. Anyone who wants to go to Sagada should try this, and make sure to have with you tons of your patience, COURAGE and PRAYERS. Overall, it was a thrilling experience that... More

Connecting cave, 3-4 hours of breathing cold. You'll miss the sun rays. Rock formations, bats singing. Raffling, crawl, climb, slide, slippery when wet. Awesome life it is!

Its been my 2nd time in this cave but the beauty and its superb rock formation really enchant me. There is no problem if you are big or weak as long as you have determination, you will survive the tiring yet so fulfilling cave connection with lumiang. Just be prepared to get wet and bring your extra flashlight.

Awesome! A bit of challenge especially during wet season - the stones going down are slippery + the water inside the cave is so cold.

Everything about this place is amazing and unusual. One can go far, up , down. And around. Well worth the visit. But beware. Slippery when wet. Good shoes and headlamp and gloves certainly help.

not for people who are afraid of the dark and claustrophobic but for people who are adventure lovers... the place is awesome and the 3 to 4 hours of exploration is worth the effort. This is one of the best activities that you can do especially traversing te sumaguing caves!

Trip to Sagada would not be complete without cave exploration in Sumaguing Caves. It was exhilarating. Rock formations are marvelous. Even those who have no prior spelunking experiences will definitely enjoy the activity. This is definitely a must-try.

Situated in Sagada, Sumaguing Cave is for the adventurer and the strong at heart. No, it won't sugar coat you with easy trails or short spelunking but this is the grandfather of cave diving. Before you start, you register for environmental fees doodah. Be sure to go there with an experienced guide that will charge you around P500. Wear shirt... More
