Awesome indeed

I would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't raining that time. But the formation inside the cave are simply amazing!

No words could describe the awesome majesty of the underground river. It deserved to be among the new 7 wonders of nature! I was glad that the tour guides took extreme care in ensuring the protection of this God given heritage. It was just absolutely stunning and somewhat like a mystical experience.

Which is pretty twisting although they seem to be working on upgrading parts of it . When you get to sabang you have to queue up for up to... More

It is stunning! Amazing! A superb work of nature... nothing I can say but a totally eclipse of my heart. Underground River of Palawan... It is only a tip of an iceberg. The innermost area has not been explored. Do not listen to the audio... it will only distract you to the fantastic scenery... they only name some of the... More

As we visited the river during the height of the peakseason, it cannot be a surprise that it was crowded at the river. But the whole trip took 9 hours, and we sat in the boat for 40 minutes. Alright, there was a lunch and transfer from PP included but the waiting really ruined it for me. The underground river... More

It is beautiful, but super touristy. We stayed in Sabang and went early. I would recommend staying an extra day or two in Sabang, it is beautiful.

I attended the doctor's convention in Palawan with my siblings. So naturally, there were too many people and the lines were always long. But I think that's what FUN is all about,Being with friends and colleagues. The underground cave in the river is fantastic. It is awesome and overwhelming. The rock formations are fantastic. Definitely a must-go place.
