  • 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 Cav...  more »

  • The place will take you to another world. The cave is long and has many chambers that are so high unlike some caves where the ceiling heights are low. Another thing that captivated me were the pillars of lights coming from the opening of every chambers' ceilings; they're like natural lighting to the inside of the caves. I like most the church that they built inside the cave, the natural lights that descent from the ceiling creates a dramatic view of the altar. The scene at the view deck is also superb where you can see the green forests, the white rocks and the clear blue-green river. Local tour guides range from kids to adults. Our tour guide was an elementary school boy, but he definitely knew how to cater his trade. And he also taught us some amazing camera tricks using our mobile phones. The steps are quite easy for biginners but it can get tiring, too.
  • Nice Cave. There were lots of chambers but i forgot how many of them. We have visited 5 chambers only since our time is limited but will be back here definitely :)
  • A very unique church inside a cave. be sure to see all the chambers, the inside is much better than the first and second chamber of the cave.
  • Probably the best cave I've ever been to. This deserves to be crowned as a world wonder rather than the underground cave in puerto princesa palawan. The church inside is also amazing, unique and creepy in a good way.
  • One of the best caves I've been. A must to visit place in the northern part of Luzon.
