Explore three of Mabinay’s splendid caves in Dumaguete in this private tour, including lunch and snacks plus hotel transfers. This 8-hour tour will leave you in awe of the beauty of Crystal Cave, Panligawan Cave, and Pandalihan Cave in Mabinay, dubbed the cave capital of the Philippines. Whether or not you have experience in caving, you’ll find yourself enjoying this eco-adventure.
The tour begins upon your pick-up at your hotel accommodation in Dumaguete City. You’ll be traveling with a guide who’ll provide you with the equipment you need, such as caving helmet and lights. While traveling toward your destination, your guide will be briefing you on what you can expect from the tour, including the itinerary and safety reminders.
The first cave in your itinerary is Crystal Cave. As its name suggests, this cave boasts crystal-like formations and is considered one of the most beautiful caves in Mabinay. If you’re a spelunking beginner, there’s a raft-like floor extension that serves as a walkway where you can stand while you survey the cave for insects and various stalagmite and stalactite rock formations.
Snack on some refreshments that come with your package before making your way toward the second cave, Panligawan. The story has it that this cave, the name of which translates to “courting”, is where lovers from the area would meet amid a romantic background. If you’re inside the cave, you’ll see the light from the sky peeking through a dome-shaped hole at the top of the cave.
Finally, you’ll be going to Pandalihan Cave. Like Panligawan Cave, this cave features a flight of stone steps for easy entry access among inexperienced cavers.
Of course, what’s a spelunking tour without the usual adventures of river crossing or swimming in cool, clear waters. You can look forward to a hearty meal before your return trip to the city.
