“give it a shot”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

The starting point of the cave connection will not disappoint you. Be ready with the extreme adventure. If your guided by Kuya Erwin, you may remember this line: "don't hold it sexy".

“Creepy Culture”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Seeing a lot of coffins is really creepy but visiting the place makes you appreciate the various culture of the Philippines. The coffins are small because the dead are positioned like a fetus signifying that you go back to where you came from.

“Cave connection is great but for sporty people”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Such a nice, natural adventure! Don't change anything, just leave it like that, making it totally safe would take out the charm of it!

“Intriguing”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The idea of being in a cave with a bunch of OLD coffins with the deceased still inside them didn't seem to be something too thrilling until we actually got there. WOW, hand carved coffins stacked on top of other coffins, some perched high in little niches with room for only one, others are in places making the observers wonder.. how did they get carried there? I don't remember reading about practices like these anywhere else in the world and the fact that they sit in these caves, unguarded except by the spirits themselves, is very intriguing. The coffins are camouflaged by the gray rocks inside. We didn't go deeper into the caves but if that is your goal, try going further west to the Sumaging and Crystal Caves where the deep underground with water can only be experienced barefooted with your guide holding his kerosene lamp to light your path.

“Magnificent!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

the trek down Lumiang Cave was full of adventures! It was a real spelunking trek! i'm sorry to say but for me this is better than the Underground River. The cave was soooo huge and really beautiful, i love it. Good thing people esp the guides from Sagada are really taking care of it.
