Vote for the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park

April 13, 2011 Travel

Let us help make the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature and help boost tourism in our country.

The underground river is the world's longest. The 8.2 km. navigable underground river winds through a cave before flowing to the South China Sea.

It is located 50 km. north of the city of Puerto Princesa. Was able to visit this amazing natural wonder before, through the Department of Tourism. Let me add, I think our entry is really deserving.

We rode a banca to go to the national park. It was quite an enjoyable ride with some of Palawan's beautiful rock formations as our backdrop.
At the entrance of the national park, we were welcomed by their little residents, the monitor lizards.

The waters were tempting but it is a marine reservation, so no swimming.

After registering and reading all the rules, we rode a smaller banca with our cave guide who escorted us inside the cave.

The cave features major stalactites and stalagmites that form images like the Holy Family, bat, corn, mushroom, etc. Don't have good photos inside, but I guarantee it is worth the trip.
