Day 3 ~ Sumaguing Cave Extreme Adventure

SUMAGUING CAVE SPELUNKING is one of the favorite adventure activities when you go to Sagada. The challenge of getting inside the cave and being rewarded with stunning rock formations, stalactites and slagmites. It also makes your creative mind work as you can think of too many things as to what a certain rock formation is. 

Second Part of the adventure was you have to choose how you will go out of the cave (ALIVE) Hahaha! You have 2 choices actually. 1st is going out the easy way and 2nd is going out the extreme way. But since we've gone so far already, some of us chose the "Extreme Way" so we can experience the thrill in the cave. It was dark inside, but our guide brought a lamp to help us see the trail. You have to hold on tight to the rocks and be careful with every step you make as the path going down is really steep and slippery. The trek was also made hard by the bats' guano all over. The smell stinks at first, but you'll get used to it after spending quite some time inside (LOL!). The pee and the poop of the bats go together so beware not to look up or dare to open your mouth or else ewwww!

At some point, you'll need to remove your footwear as it would be easier to walk barefooted on the steep rocks.

What's so exciting about this activity was the challenge of getting through narrow boulders, climbing rock formations, rapelling down, passing and hopping through pools of water, crawling and stretching your arms. For it will really test your endurance and flexibility as you go through the different jaw-dropping spots inside the cave.
Another thing was that, get ready to be wet as well, there are parts that you need to dip in knee-deep cold water.

As for me, this was by far the most extreme adventure I had ever done in my entire life and I think that this will be my first and last (LOL!). It was super scary inside the cave because you'll never know what will happen to you next. One wrong move and your dead-meat! But, it was a once in a lifetime experience. It's really worth exploring for! It's definitely a MUST SEE! You go to Sagada without going to the cave, and You'll miss half of your life :) swear (hehehe!)
