Information about Pangihan Cave
Located in Barangay Poblacion in Aklan, Pangihan Cave is a wildlife sanctuary known for its eight connecting chambers that are home to shimmering stalactites and stalagmites. The whole cave system is said to have a total area of 5,001 square meters. While the cave corridors are narrow, the chambers it leads to are massive. In the crevices of these chambers, you’ll find thousands of native bats called kuyapnit.
It is less than 7 kilometers from the Caticlan Airport and the Caticlan Jetty Port. It is only about a 15-minute car ride from these two ports, making it a good side trip for those vacationing on Boracay Island.
Tickets and entry
There is a PhP50 entrance fee that you need to pay when you register for your visit. It is also recommended that you get a guide, which will cost you roughly PhP250.
Best time to visit
The inside of the caves can get really muddy, so it’s better to visit during the dry months of November to May when the cave floors are less slippery.
