Information about Bagumbungan Cave
The Bagumbungan Cave in Marinduque is often compared to Sagada's Sumaguing Cave as it also features stalactites and stalagmites in impressive shapes and forms. Thanks to its fascinating rock formations, the cave has become a popular site for spelunking in the country.
At the cave’s entrance, there is a pathway leading down the waist-deep underground river basin. To get there, you have to pass through slippery surfaces and narrow passages. The path gets a bit more challenging as you slide down the muddy paths and squeeze yourself between huge rocks.
Bagumbungan Cave is 1.9KM long and has a beginner-friendly trail, ideal for those who are new to spelunking. Some parts of the cave are off-limits for tourists. It remains largely unexplored, making it a wonderland for adventure seekers out there.
Best time to visit
It's best to visit the cave during the dry season in the Philippines (December to May), so there are fewer chances of rainfall making the trail too slippery to traverse.
