Stopped here on the way to the underground river. Paid 200 peso to go into the cave and went spelunking. They also have 2 types of zip lines you can do to get down faster. One is a 21 sec sit style zip line and the other is about a 30 sec superman style zip line. We opted to just go back down the cave instead. Haha but quite a few ppl did the zip line! Overall I enjoyed the spelunking! Wear shoes, I was wearing flip flops so it was a little hard but doable!

This is a community based tourism and the fees collected go the the community operating the attraction. That is the reason for the senior citizens ground staff. It was a great experience going in and up the Ugong Rock cave. There were many guides inside so you wont get lost. There is a zipline for short cut going down or go down the way you went up (not really).

This place is a great option for those headed to the Underground River from PP. It is about 20-25 minutes by car before the Underground River meetup location. You can check out a really cool cave and ziplining, while at the same time support a great cause which gives so many of the people in the local community great jobs. However, if you plan on going in the cave, it is best that you wear your sneakers since it is wet and slippery. The tour guides are a great help but since medical is far away, I suggest wearing sneakers.

My family and I stopped by after the underground river tour. It was well worth the stop. We got to look and walk/climb through caves. (Warning can be very difficult if overweight/bad back/not athletic). Alternatively there's as few things you can do on the ground.

The caves are limestone formations having various structures due to historical amounts of erosion mainly by water. Vugs/fractures exist within the different formations making quite interesting to look at for geology enthusiasts.

The best part was the pipeline for me. Two positions exist: fast ride where you sit and slightly slower one in superman position. Was a little nervous about safety but took my chances. Health and safety standards in Palawan seem to be of a higher standard than other places such as Bali/Phuket.

Ziplining in the rain. Great!

Worth the stop. It is a community driven project.
