Alright so we were picked up at around 7am i think. It was a 2hr drive going to the site. We had one stop over so they can eat and we bought some OFF lotion. Too bad it was raining so hard we need a raincoat! Boo! Costs us 100 pesos each! Soon as we get to the site, we took a boat going to the Underground River. What i saw was just fascinating and breathtaking! It's really more fun in the Philippines!
We signed our names at the registration and got our permits. We were also given life vests and hard hats.
After that we waited for few minutes before we got into our boat with outriggers to take us inside the cave. Nice! They were really organized! Our boat guide was just hilarious! It was too dark inside the cave and we were only using a big flashlight connected to a car battery, (I guess?). Xave was the one holding the light since we were the ones in front.
It was really amazing, how those rocks were formed over a hundred or even thousands of years. No one was allowed to hold anything inside the cave since they don't want any acid on those stalactites and stalagmites. lol The cave was interesting most especially those rock formations and bat vaults!
I really love every single detail of this cave. It is really a must to experience the beauty of nature at Palawan.
|of course, im the photographer.|
After lunch, we went to Ugong Cave, it was called Ugong because it makes a sound when knock on it. Hmm.. given that my friends were KJ (read: Kill Joy) only i and tanya paid Php200 each for Spelunking. So we went inside the cave, and boy! it was so tiring! We had to bend and climb! I was watching my back since i have sacroiliitis. If i had known i need to be more flexible for this, i should've stayed!
Soon as we finished, we went back to the hotel to pick up our things. We arrived around 2:30pm and it was already our check out time. The hotel let us stayed but they need to move our bags to the reception area. We had no choice but to clean up using their public bathroom but that was okay for us.
Our flight was delayed due to weather so we just finished our "Call me maybe" video.
I would really like to thank Ms. Tiara ( of pex and girltalk) for the tour. I would really recommend them! :)
