Things to do in SAGADA | Sumaguing Cave

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Spelunking was our first activity for Day 2 of our Surviving Sagada Adventure.



Your visit to Sagada would not be complete without encountering the mystifying Sumaguing Cave.

The tour starts as early as 7am so that we can be at the cave first as many tourists visit this place.

Good Morning! :)

I was a bit scared because for one I've never tried Spelunking before - I've been to Puerto Princesa's Underground River but we were in a boat the whole time (so that doesn't count) and second I'm clueless on what to expect inside (didn't completely do research about it- eeeps!)

The tour guide gathered us and oriented us on what to expect and do inside the cave. I was taken aback even more when he said that there were tons of bat poop inside!

My Papa, Mama and Tita Lolit begged off to continue with the spelunking adventure (which I think was a smart move for them)

First part of the spelunking involves walking down through the slippery mud. We also passed by BAT POOP! Expect to smell a VERY foul odor and hold some while touching stones as you pass by.



When you get to the middle of the cave, the guide will ask to remove your footwear because it's safer walking without.

The rock formations were truly impressive. I love dipping my feet in the cold water.


What I love about spelunking is that you can let your imagination run wild with the stone formations.

Spelunking in Sumaguing Cave involves presence of mind, agility, flexibility, strength and creativity.

Treking the cave would be my most exciting Sagada Adventure out of all the buwis-buhay stunts we've made. Big thanks to our twin guides, Jemel and Jersey who helped us go through the grueling adventure of spelunking.

By the way, the Pacsafe Pouch and LifeProof came in very handy in this activity.

  1. AbstractIn 2015, the primary energy demand Coach Handbags Clearance in the UK was 202.5 million tonnes of oil equivalent (mtoe=848 EJ). Of this, about 58 mtoe (2.43 EJ) was used for space heating. Almost Ray Ban Outlet all of this heat was from burning fossil fuels either directly (50% of all Ray Ban Glasses gas used is for domestic purposes) or indirectly for power generation.

    AbstractWe present an optical to X ray spectral analysis of four Coach Outlet 'hypervariable' AGN (HVAs) discovered by comparing Pan STARRS data Yeezy Discount to that from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey over a 10 yr baseline (Lawrence et al.). There is New Jordan Shoes 2020 some evidence that these objects are X ray loud for their corresponding UV luminosities, but given that we measured them in a historic high state, it is not clear whether to take Coach Outlet Store the high state or low state as typical of the properties Yeezy Boost 350 of these HVAs. We estimate black hole masses based on MgII and H emission line profiles, and either the high or low state luminosities, finding mass ranges log(MBH/M) = 8.2 8.8 and log(MBH/M) = 7.9 8.3, respectively.
