A very good view of Rock Formation. Did not go inside or go near the cave. A very famous spot for photographers and it was one of the pit stop of amazing race. I really don't know the history why they called it Cleopatra's Needle. 10 mins stopover!

Achieving this challenge has been the highlight of my year so far. We went with the guide Dampot to be found in the Batak village. Can be... More

Just one of the many natural limestone protrusions in a karst area. It is somewhat distinguished since an imagined obelisk sits atop the structure. A hill resembling an elephant's outline (naturally named Mt. elephant by the locals) stands behind Cleopatra's needle. It is found on the way to the underground river coming from Puerto Princesa. The site was ine of... More

This is one place for eco-tourism. It is a good drive from Puerto Princesa but the sights along the way and the place itself is worth the trek. Bring water. Wear comfortable shoes.
