We were amazed when we saw a different rock formations inside the cave. I was too long underground river. From sabang proper, you have to take by boat going to that wonderful cave it takes like 30 mins. It makes your vacation more great full.

I heard this place get hyped up big time, so I was afraid it was going to just be another place over run with tourists. While there were lots of people, the park does an excellent job at spacing people out. We took a super windy hour and a half ride to the park, where we then had to wait... More

The boat ride to the park was an adventure in itself - you get to see magnificant rock formations, the cool breeze, and the clear blue waters as you approach the side of the island where the subterranean river is. Upon getting to the site, you are greeted with personnel who orients you on the basic rules of safety, hands... More

After being picked up at the hotel by the tour group who picked up other tourist around the city, we were lucky to be with a fun group who at the end of the day didn't seem they wanted to go back to the hotel but rather keep having a good time. Anyway, the ride was about 2 hours. We... More

Totally go see this! After this cave, you'll never need to see another! Make sure you stay quiet through the tunnel tho! My family didn't and it annoyed me! Can't imagine how much more the bats!!!!!

I didn't have to wait in line because I was on a tour so we got in the cave fairly quick. An English audio guide was provided which gave some meaning and information about the cave. The staff were helpful and I felt safe on the boat.

Van trip from hotel was 1.5 hours. Nice ride through the jungle, great sightseeing, great road condition. When we get to the location, had to wait for the motorboat to the underground river for about 2 hours (4hours I heard at peak season). Then 30 min boat ride. Then another waiting at the actual location of the cave, about 20-30... More

Wasn't a rock lover, and we couldn't touch the stones, so I wasn't as impressed as I anticipated to be. BUT their efforts to keep cave the way it is is very respectable. If you're not a museum type of person, you might not enjoy it as much cause it's a "look but don't touch" type of thing. Still a... More

its an understatement to settle for "The Last Frontier" ." Beyond" The Last Frontier is apt! Far from the underground caves (eg- in vietnam) - our Underground river is superbly preserved! Raw! even the smell of bats' pee lend realism to the natural habitat and richness of earth treasury! The rock formations tell a story naturally. Nothing is hand-made. And... More
