Sumaguing Cave, Sagada, Mt. Province, Philippines

Sagada also as its own rice terraces! The sumaguing cave is one of the most popular caves in the Philippines and many tourists visit the places despite the difficulty of going there, just enjoy the bumpy roads. The cave is located in the town of Sagada, in Mountain Province where you could enjoy cool whether especially in December to Fubruary. Usually tourists who visit Sagada pass by the Banaue Rice Terraces in Ifugao and travel via Bontoc, the capital of Mt. Province, where elevations at the highway could reach up to 2000 meters above sea level, you could enjoy nature along the way. However, from Bontoc to Sagada, the road is not so nice but its part of the adventure and so the driver must be very good or familiar to the place. You should go to the Tourism office of Sagada to get a tour guide for you to enter the cave. As you enter the sumaguing cave, the guide lights up a gas lamp for you to gaze at the stalactites and stalagmites formations. As product of nature and probably with the help of human imagination, there are several shapes that are formed in the cave which includes: king's curtain, pregnant woman, dancing hall, nativity, and my favorite the rice terraces. For more information about the Municipality of Sagada, visit Sagada, Philippines.
