About Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, Puerto Princesa

The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is a protected area of the Philippines located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) north of the city centre of Puerto Princesa, Palawan. The river is also called Puerto Princesa Underground River. The national park is located in the Saint Paul Mountain Range on the western coast of the island. It is bordered by St. Paul Bay to the north and the Babuyan River to the east. The City Government of Puerto Princesa has managed the National Park since 1992. The entrance to the subterranean river is a short hike or boat ride from the town Sabang. In 2010, a group of environmentalists and geologists discovered that the underground river has a second floor, which means that there are small waterfalls inside the cave. They also found a cave dome measuring 300 m (980 ft) above the underground river, rock formations, large bats, a deep water hole in the river, more river channels, and another deep cave, as well as marine creatures and more. Deeper areas of the underground river are almost impossible to explore due to oxygen deprivation. On November 11, 2011, Puerto Princesa Underground River was provisionally chosen as one of the New7Wonders of Nature. This selection was officially confirmed on January 28, 2012.

  • UNESCO world heritage site, one of the modern seven wonders of the world. If I went here again I would take the longer tour. River trip very good, saw macaques and a really big monitor lizard while waiting for our boat

  • Cave is very fanciful. Explore it yourself. This cave extends to tens of meters under water and above you mountains. In fact, it is a very scary place, but thanks to the presence of many boats inside the cave you will feel safe. Do not miss the opportunity you should visit

  • A very unique experience, probably the only one most of us would have in our lives. Once you reach Sabang port, a private/shared boat will take you to the mouth of the Subterranean River. You'll be provided an audiobook to guide you through the journey because you do not speak when you get in... You'll find out why. Do note that it'll be absolutely dark so this isn't for those with specific phobias. The various natural formations are simply wonderful to see & imagine. IMHO, well worth the effort you have to put in.
