The cave was amazing! The 184 steps are manageable to someone who doesnt do hiking. The floor is slippery so better be careful. Bring a good photographer or a good camera and everything will be perfect even if its rainy season :)

You will see huge caves and there is a place where they have a small church altar where they held some mass in some schedules. Nice place to see and explore.

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
