At the entrance of the Lumiang Cave, you will find also the Lumiang Burial. Pine coffins will be found at the entrance. Better not touch the remains and respect the place.
Lumiang cave has narrow paths or smaller chamber. In some parts of the cave, you need to crawl, rappelling downwards or you need to step on the shoulder/leg of your tour guide.
Nice and amazing rock formations are present inside the cave. Your tour guide will provide you a great spot for your photos.
Avoid vandalism in the place you visit. Sad to see lots of names on this wall.
Lots of bats are present inside the Sumaguing cave. Watch out for some dangerous cliffs. 🙂
Sumaguing cave has the biggest chamber in all caves at Sagada. An enormous amount of stalagmites (a rock formation that rises from the floor of the cave) and stalactite (a formation that hangs from the ceiling of the cave) can be found here.
If your afraid of the dark or afraid in confined space, this activity is not advisable for you.
We were delighted to see some rock formations inside the cave. You will see the “Pregnant Women”, “King’s curtain”, “Shark Teeth”, “The Bear” and many more that you can imagine. 🙂
In this part of the Sumaguing cave, you need to walk barefoot. Be cautious walking in limestone, they are very slippery. Try to hold on to the rope for your safety. (Safety harness not available)
Our tour guide(Alejandro) give us plenty of locations for our incredible photoshoot. He’s a good photographer. 🙂
We crawled in some wet passageways or pathways to reach this magnificent view. The water was near freezing. 🙂
Survive the Sagada cave connection adventure. A bit tiring but a very fun adventure. Thanks to Hanah for convincing me to do this caving activity.

We did this Spelunking in Sagada for almost 5 hours. I am not adventurous and I am scared of darkness and heights. With tears, muscle pain and dehydration, I finished this adventure as a stronger person.
It is very fun but long journey inside this cave.
Wow! This looks like such an amazing cave to explore! Love it!
