So much fun going through this vast labrynth of caves. Physically not for the faint of heart--there are some challenges. Beautiful formations, dead corals, ancient sea shells embedded in the walls, animist burial ground at the mouth of the cave.

Definitely a must see if you are at least a bit adventurous. You get to walk through different parts of the cave, climb down the complex, walk in the water and through narrow places... definitely an experience you won't get that often.

Prepare yourselves, It's not going to be a walk in the park. It's quite challenging but it's all worth it. The water inside is cold, there are also a lot of bats inside. The lime stones are quite slippery, so you need to be bare foot inside.. That would be the first and the last time I enter a cave.... More

We went to the cave as it was listed as one of the highlights of Sagada. We had no idea how wonderful it would be. Be prepared to get REALLY dirty and completely wet. No one told u this before we went in. Also, your shoes will be very dirty with bat poo after and your clothes will be pretty... More

Of course I wanted to go there because of the movie and of course for the sunrise. Tip - the sun doesn't rise there everyday. Kuya Oscar set My expectation... More

Wow! I had a blast exploring this underground world. Most of the comments refer to the sumaging cave, but there is also the cave connection. This starts at the burial cave and finishes at the sumaging cave. I breezed through this trial due to the fact there was only the guide and I. It was therefore easy to see and... More

This was my 1st spelunking ever. You'll enjoy this activity for 200-300 per head. This activity requires physical strength and strong mind as you have to explore the place by using "lampara" and no other source of light. It was cold inside the cave due to limited sunlight goin in; ice cold water is present all over the place. The... More

Sumaging Cave is located at Sagada Mt. Province, a serene and unpolluted place. The stalagmites and stalactites forms inside the cave are incomparable.

Please wear proper attire when going here and be really careful. Coz the cave can be very slippery well a tour guide will help you but prevention is better than cure. It is also cool because the place is cool. Like your mouth smokes even its 12:30 in the high noon.

The best experience is to swim on the bottom... For the rest is a beautiful long cave, which do not require too much experience.
