April 13, 2011 Travel

Let's unite in promoting the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature and contribute to the growth of tourism in our country.

This subterranean river stands as the world's longest, stretching across 8.2 km. The navigable underground watercourse gracefully winds through a captivating cave system before making its way to the South China Sea. Your support in voting and spreading the word will not only showcase the unparalleled beauty of this natural wonder but also enhance its allure as a must-visit destination for travelers worldwide. Let's make Puerto Princesa's underground river a global treasure!

Located 50 km north of the city of Puerto Princesa, I had the privilege of visiting this amazing natural wonder through the Department of Tourism. I must say, our entry is truly deserving. We rode a banca to the national park, enjoying the scenic backdrop of Palawan's beautiful rock formations.

Upon reaching the park's entrance, we were greeted by its little residents, the monitor lizards.

Since the inviting waters are part of a marine reservation, swimming is not allowed.

After registration and a briefing on the rules, we boarded a smaller banca with our cave guide, who escorted us inside the cave.

The cave features impressive stalactites and stalagmites that form images such as the Holy Family, bat, corn, mushroom, and more. Although I don't have many photos from inside, I can assure you that the experience is truly worth the trip.
