We had no idea what it was going to be like and no one told us how treacherous it would be. I would not recommend it if you are not physically fit. The ages in our group of 7 was 21, and 50-67. If you ask me would I do it again, the answer is NO! But if you ask... More

In my opinion this is a must in your to do list when you're in Sagada. It is highly recommended for fit travelers as the hike going down the cave is pretty treacherous going down. Once you past the "slippery" stage, then you get to acknowledge the beauty of the cave with all the rock formations and underground river. This... More

This cave was quite challenging on our end because of the ladder that really needs to be replaced. But overall the best adventure in Sagada ever especially if it rains. 😂

Now I know why they sell shirts with the statement "I survived Sagada". The trip was indeed an adventour. Not possible to do without a tour guide. You must be wearing the proper attire, foot wear, and travel light. Avoid bringing unnecessary items. Water was freezing cold. Some of the stones were sooo slippery I fell flat on my face... More

We were disappointed that our Tour Guide didn't disclose how difficult this tour was. We ended up, stopping our exploration 25% into the cave. Visitors need prepare in advance. You also need to know your physical boundaries and comfort zones, and that you turn back before you cross them (i.e. are you claustrophobic, are you afraid of heights? can you... More

As long as you're not afraid of tight spaces or heights. Its scary AF but so worth doing. There are under ground pools in the caves which are awing to come across. I'm actually afraid of tight spaces and so was vet unsure about the tour. But after the thrill of how amazing the tour is I just let go.... More

Visiting this cave is one of the challenging activities i've experience in my whole trip. I experience to walk barefoot because i'm the clumsy kind and it's better for me to walk and feel the stone and sand barefoot. 😊 strongly recommended for those people looking for andventure and fun.!

If you are looking for an adventure, this is the place to go. I just hope they have protective gears for the tourists like helmets

When I first went in (phase 1), I was honestly shocked on how slippery the rocks are. These is because the cave houses thousands of bats that defecates down to the rocks. Care must be observed when going down these rocks since they are all very slippery and one wrong move can lead to injury. Always listen to your tour... More

I didn't know what to expect when my group arrived at the cave for our tour. I wish we were more prepared. Unfortunately our guides did not tell us what we should wear. I suggest wearing flip flops and also wearing water clothes so you can get in water chest deep. We did not get to enjoy the last part... More
