Conquering fear of total darkness! Apr 18, 2015
Yes, I survived the Cave Connection in Sagada! What a fulfilling experience to survive extreme activities like rock climbing, crawling and spelunking while wondering both the Sumaguing and Lumiang Caves for roughly around 6 hours. You read it right. Six hours because I visited Sagada last Summer where most students has time off from school.

The Cave Connection starts at the Lumiang Cave and ends at the Sumaguing Cave. Most people there call Lumiang Cave as the Burial Cave because of the hanging coffins at the entrance.

Sumaguing Cave has the largest chambers among all caves in Sagada. It is also tagged as the Big Cave because it houses rock formations including the King's curtain and the famous Porn Caves. Both caves has incredible stalactites and stalagmites.

Be prepared on possible dropping of bat poops as you get through the course. That's part of the thrill, isn't it? Bring gloves as some rocks are very sharp. No need for a fancy trekking shoes as you'll need to remove it as you might slip your feet from the slippers, muddy areas. Wear a very comfortable dress. Something that can be useful to warm you up coz when you get deeper, it will get colder. This was the challenge for me. I never expected that the water inside is super cold and yes, you'll pass by bodies of water.

The cave connection was the highlight of my Sagada trip. I enjoyed it as it required me to survive an extremely dangerous adventure, conquering my fear of total darkness and just entrusting my life to our tour guide. Whoa!!!!

Amazing caving experience for everyone Feb 04, 2013
Friend of mine and I entered this place not knowing what is waiting for us... We went to the Lumiang cave to see the coffins that are stacked up at the entrance and than continued to the cave. Our mistake was in not taking the guide to help us trough the place and going in just to explore.

Cave starts pretty easy and it is a bit challenging to go trough small openings and lover yourself trough holes in the ground. If you dont know where you are going you can easily fall in the crevasses or hurt yourself in many ways. It is more than worth to get one of the local guides to take you trough 4 hours of incredible scenery and take you to the places you wont find and all of that for 400p...

Ask your guide to take you to the lowest point under cascades. You'll have to walk in the water up to your neck, but it is incredible experience. Whole trip is not for people scared of sketchy things or people that are not fit.

You can enter this cave on either entrance and guides have very bright gas lamps. You should bring your own lamp too.
