A good place for a new traveller. This cave have hundreds of steps before you reach the main attraction. I would suggest to visit Callao Cave first before Sierra Cave to appreciate the mud. Callao Cave is a semi muddy place compare to Sierra Cave...More

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

10 kilometers from the main highway, 184 steps going up to the cave but it was worth the sweat seeing this natural wonder. This is a must place to see when visiting Cagayan especially for the adventurous ones. There's a chapel inside the cave and...More
