Day 2: Puerto Princesa Underground River

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park or known as The Palawan Underground River was one of the main highlight on our Palawan tour. We took a package from Gulliver's 24/7 Travel and Tour because you cannot go there without booking first.

I recommend to stay in Go Hotels, at the lobby you can find Gulliver's Travel and Tour boot. At night, they left us a note regarding the pick up time for tomorrow's tour. A very nice service. They picked us up from the hotel around 7:00AM. 

Our tour guide - Kuya Alfred

Our guide was the best. His name is Alfred. I can see that he really love his job, he is happy to introduced the city to us. The history and all did-you-know facts. He has humor also which makes our long trip not boring.

We are going North, to Brgy. Cabayugan, 2 hours travel from the city.While on the road, our tour guide said that Puerto Princesa is described as a "City in a Forest" and is 1,500 meters above sea level. Palwan has 10,780 islands/islets and over 1M population. We passed by the Cleopatra Needle known as the highest mountain peak in Palawan.

We arrived at last after a long time of waiting from the ticket boot and boat port. It was raining again on our 2nd day of tour. And the tourists were superb many - we cannot find any vacant seats while waiting for our turn to go inside the cave. 

A nice view of the cave entrance

We go around the place while waiting for our boat. We spotted nice views from the left side of the island. 

It was fascinating to see the inside of Underground River. Different forms of stalagmites and stalactites. Inside forms and shapes are like abstract. You can use your mind to see different images. It is such amazing how nature works and I understand why Palawan Underground River was provisionally chosen as one of the 2011's New 7 Wonders of  Nature. 

For me it looks like a T-rex, sometimes the left side looks like 
an "Alien" from a movie.

The Underground River tour lasted like 30 minutes. It was fun!
