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.Wikipedia

Came here to see family and decided to have a stop on the way. The tour started on the main island and we took a boat to the underground river. Don't forget sunscreen - even in December the sun was scorching. The landing to the river was vast and we ventured to the forest seeing the animals there. Keep your distance because the monkeys can be mischievous. The underground river itself was awe inspiring. And dank. Very dank. The air just hovers with moisture and there's a curious scent accompanying it. The bats and other cave life hanging about were sights to behold as we were taught info on its residents. We didn't venture too far, I forget the distance, but turned back and that was that.
The cave itself is such a fantastic view, you’d be amaze on its nature. And by the way you’d see big lizards there and monkeys. That freaked me out a little, haha! But it’s normal there according to them.
Simply amazing. The boat rides, caves and jungle walks were great fun. There are ziplines too!
This is well worth seeing. The journey there is a bit of a rollercoaster so take your travel sickness pills if you need them. There is a bit of a wait once you get to the town nearby but our tour guide took us to the mangroves tour and zip line to fill the time. The river is beautiful and incredible! You get a recorded tour guide when actually on the river which the boat didn't always keep up with but gives you a good insight into the history and significance of this place. Our boat man was very funny on top of this. Go do it
The place is amazing you will see a nice lime stone formation inside the cave.
