When you arrive, you get 2 choices, the long one and the short one. We did the short one and honestly it isn't that short or easy. It's difficult because it's slippery and not flat anywhere. Would not recommend for older people or kids. There were older people that had to turn back and kids that were scared and got... More

Worth a go! Fun adventure and you get to see some interesting rock formation. Very wet area so wear some clothes you don't mind getting wet and comfortable/water-proof shoes. A nice activity if it's cloudy or rainy outside

Our guide took us down the steep and sometimes slippery stairs to the cave entrance where you can view and touch the coffins (some are up to 500 years old). The earlier coffins are quite small as they used to fold the bodies in half to fit into the small coffins. Some coffins have deteriorated over time and you could... More

One of the caves with coffins, did not enter the cave but we walked all the way to the entrance. You can ask your local guide to take you inside if you wish.

This cave was a bit of a surprise to me. Whilst the descent down was a little slippery the natural rock formations - turtle, female anatomy - and pools at the bottom were well worth it. My stepson even swam in one of the pools. One note of caution, you should do this tour with a guide who usually possesses... More

I think it's pretty on the beginner level when it comes to spelunking but still, it is a whole new experience for me. The descent may be treacherous (slippery, covered by bat urine and dung) but the falls and clear waters that await below are worth the difficulty descending. This is a must-do when you're in Sagada.

We had no idea what it was going to be like and no one told us how treacherous it would be. I would not recommend it if you are not physically fit. The ages in our group of 7 was 21, and 50-67. If you ask me would I do it again, the answer is NO! But if you ask... More

In my opinion this is a must in your to do list when you're in Sagada. It is highly recommended for fit travelers as the hike going down the cave is pretty treacherous going down. Once you past the "slippery" stage, then you get to acknowledge the beauty of the cave with all the rock formations and underground river. This... More

This cave was quite challenging on our end because of the ladder that really needs to be replaced. But overall the best adventure in Sagada ever especially if it rains. 😂
