Bittersweet Sagada - Cave Connection

From Lumiang Cave to Sumaging Cave, after the Echo Valley Tour, we just waited for a while for our guides to gear up and then we started the walk. It was getting cold and I’m a bit worried but then we will not give up.



Full smile parin kahit pagod na, well excited pa ako sobra.

We met another Kevin (This time without the H). He doubled the kakulitan of Kehvin, kala namin mahiyain pero lakas mang trip




Lumiang Cave was explored by foreign spelunkers as per Kevin and Sumaging was explored by locals decades ago.



Yes, every step is challenging but then bitterness immediately turned sweet especially of the excitement on what to see and what to do next.





The two guys, while giving us information about the cave are tripping us at the same time. But then we saw how they took care of their guests and how they assist us every step of the way.






After these shots, my camera went dead, medyo di pa sumuko agad yung isa pa naming point and shoot so then here are some pics from Kaye’s camera.






Getting into the water is the most difficult part for me. Grabe sa lamig, that’s the worst. Kaye also sprained her arm but then continue to finish the challenge.





Kaye’s arm was feeling ok though she’s a bit worried. Still, she accepted to take the difficult route. Masakit na din katawan at paa ko but then we continue. To the maximum level na daw. And yes the last part of spelunking is way challenging plus me basa-an factor pa ulit.


Nag me-meeting sila kung pano kami pag ti-tripan. :p


More rock formations below.









We were unable to showcase all the magnificent rock formation inside as we have limited shots already but I assure you won’t regret. Dead battery na lahat bago pa maka akyat.

After getting out the cave, with super slippery way out, we noticed that it’s drizzling outside. It’s so cold but we are so happy that after 4 hours and 20 mins (rounded off) we were finally out of the cave. Super an achievement for all of us, it’s already 8:00 pm and we were also dead hungry and we rushed to look for somewhere to eat asap. So the four of us, together with the two Kevin’s (plus H) ate at Shanghai Hauz. Rice to the max kaming lahat.


My legs hurt so much but then so proud to finish Cave Connection. Tinulog ko nalang. :)
