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

Quite scary at first because you need to squeeze your body to fit through those tiny holes but it is doable. Just listen and follow your guide's instruction.

breathtaking. literally. especially if you've been living a sedentary lifestyle, you'd be out of breath. hahaha best to wear slippers (new pairs recommended or else you'll slip) and leggings or shorts and shirt. it's about 1 and a half hour of spelunking, but depends on your pace and how often you stop for pics. you need a guide to appreciate...

Sagada is one of the best places to go to if you want to see really great views, experience the local life and just plain relax. One way to enjoy your stay is to go to Sumaguing cave. Really a great experience and would love to do it again. Pro tip: 1. Post your number in the tourism info center... More
