Hinagdanan Cave

Translated as “laddered” in Cebuano, Hinagdanan Cave is a 100-meter-long cave that was accidentally discovered by the owner of the land who built a ladder to access its inside after seeing a strange hole in his property. Located in Bingag, Dauis, it was also once used as a hideout by locals during World War II to escape from the Japanese Imperial Army.  

Currently, it is visited for its beautiful rock formations and underground lake that travelers can swim in. It is naturally lit by sunlight that filters through the holes in the ceiling, which also serves as a nesting place for swallows in the area.
