Number 3: Sagada Cave Connection
Caving, also known as spelunking, is a recreational activity that involves exploration of caves. The level of difficulty varies depending on the internal structure of the cave.
I already wrote about this in my previous post about Sagada. I’m not really a big fan of caves. The darkness coupled with having to squeeze my way through very narrow openings makes me feel claustrophobic. I chose this as my #3 because of its distinct variation from the other caves that I have been to.
We entered the cave right after we had our lunch and got out at about 10pm. I like this cave exploration for the level of difficulty and the grand and well-preserved cave formations. The locals did a great job in maintaining its natural beauty.
After getting over the initial fear of the dark, the claustrophobia and the constant thought of the possibility of falling over the high cave cliffs, you’ll find that t is quite magnificent.
