We didn't know about the cave beforehand. We just saw a sign while on the way to Danarak and decided to ask around. A word of advice for anyone wanting to bring a car - while the road to Danarak was still fine, to Calinawan...More

One of the to do list if youre travelling to Tanay. Perfect for nature lovers and thill seekers. Believed to be a local hideout during worl war 2, its a long cave system with different levels and openings. One of Tanay's great wonders.

My first review of this place was "too negative" for the editors. I was so angry and felt sorry about the situation So I will just tone it down = Its a good economical cave experience in Rizal. Worth visiting at least once by every...More

It's (the last) part of my 6-hour city tour. There's a Php 200 tour guide fee and Php20 entrance fee. The cave has 7 layers, but in case you wish to explore layers 3-5 (6-7 are closed), the guide may simply ask you for a...More
