SAGADA GRAND TRAVERSE - Spelunking/Caving

Spelunking/Caving

Complementing the traverse is a one and a half hour spelunking at Balangagan Cave, also known as Marcos Cave. This winding cavern offers the most enchanting spectacle of stalactites, stalagmites, pillars/columns, draperies and flowstones, most of which are still in the process of formation by carbonate deposition. This grotto complex is made up of three layers: the lower galleries which feature pitch black stalactites, sand dune and subterranean river; the middle level with its serried white rock formations, musical draperies and fruit bat colonies; and the upper chamber with its variety of magnificent flowstones, pillars, tunnels and burial corridors. Unlike Sumaguing Cave and Cave Connection where the chambers are located deep below, spelunking at Balangagan Cave follows an ascending and circuitous route along immense chambers before exiting in an aperture about 30 meters above the main entrance.
