The cave is really awesome plus the church they built inside makes it very unique. It's just sad that some people who visited the cave vandalized the walls. Our tour guide is very good not only in giving the tour but also in photography. She...More

We went here after Sagada. I suggest the reverse route--go here before Sagada because it was really hot 38 degrees as compared to Sagada's 19 degrees. It felt like sauna after a cold shower. It took us 5 hours to get here using Kalinga-tabuk road...More

Outside, it looks like an ordinary cave. But upon entering and completing the whole tour around the place, I have felt inner peace. The place is dark inside yet because of the light coming from the holes above, the place looks more dramatic.

Is a dead cave, however the light coming from the ceiling and the formation, makes it a very relaxing and peaceful place. It's a easy easy cave. There are some steps to reach it, but it worth. The guides are very good as well !
