Located at the southern part of the Samar Island Natural Park, Sohoton Cave is a protected area and tourist attraction that boasts of many natural wonders. It covers a total land area of 841 hectares and is known for its geographical beauty characterized by its winding caves, limestone formations, subterranean rivers, verdant forest, and natural stone bridge. To get to the cave, you will cruise along the Kadak-an River. This scenic waterway is lined by lush greenery and greenish waters that turn to brown during the rainy season. After admiring the natural wonders of the Kadak-an river, the views will change to limestone cliffs as you approach Panhulugan Cliff.
Panhulugan takes its name from the Tagalog word “hulog” meaning “drop,” referring to the time in history when Filipino Guerillas would drop large stones on unwanted guests along the river. From there, you will proceed to Sohoton Cave and Natural Bridge Park. Along the way, you will pass by musicians that entertain tourists with Waray songs.
Sohoton Cave and Natural Bridge Park is composed of three different caves, the Sohoton Cave, Panhulugan Cave I, and Panhulugan Cave II. These natural wonders are fun to explore because of its unique limestone formations. Use your imagination and try to identify the cluster of stalagmites inside. After exploring the caves, you will kayak your way to Sohoton Natural Bridge, a massive forested rock formation connecting two mountain ridges. Enjoy swimming and taking lots of pictures in the area before making your way back to the jump-off site.
