Clearly, a can’t-miss and must-see attraction in Puerto Princesa! After all, it’s one of the 7 Wonders of Nature, and often deemed as the world’s longest explored underground river. I’ve seen and experienced it so many times, and I still can’t get enough of it. Even with the stinky smell of bat urine at the entrance, the underground always amuses and enthralls me with its extraordinary rock formations. Plus, they have some friendly and helpful guides too, who will add more fun to your boat ride.

Amazing boat to the inside of the subterranean park. To be the 8th wonder of the world, "Please Vote" signs were everywhere. It is definitely in my top 10 natural wonders of the world.

The whole experience felt a bit too staged with the crowded river, waiting area, and guide narrating how the various rock formations look like something religious. But with that said, it's still quite a sight and worth a look.

The one thing that can not be missed when visiting Palawan. This is considered the 8th wonder of the world and I can see why. There are lots of tourists but there is a limit to how many can visit the caves at ant given time. Unlike some of the sites in Vietnam and Thailand, the area is still relatively undeveloped. The water is pristine with the experience of sailing into the cave exciting and full of beauty.

The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is located about 50 km north of the city of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines. It features a limestone karst mountain landscape with an 8.2 km. navigable underground river. A distinguishing feature of the river is that it winds through a cave before flowing directly into the South China Sea. It includes major formations of stalactites and stalagmites, and several large chambers. The lower portion of the river is subject to tidal influences. The underground river is reputed to be the world’s longest. At the mouth of the cave, a clear lagoon is framed by ancient trees growing right to the water’s edge. Monkeys, large monitor lizards, and squirrels find their niche on the beach near the cave.... http://world.new7wonders.com/the-new7wonders-of-nature/puerto-princessa-underground-river-philippines/

One of the 7 wonders of the world! An exciting tour to go inside the dark cave. There are limestones, tall ceilings, rock formations, some even looking like figures. A guided tour is a must as the boatman know the ins and outs of the river tunnel. The park is a fun place, there are monkeys running around, lots of floral and fauna, and a beautiful sandy beach to play in.

Such an amazingly beautiful place! It is considered as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. You ride on a boat into the cave and wonder at the various rock formations. The boat men were very entertaining. Although the river is 8.2 km long, the permits given to the tourist is only for a 45 minutes boat ride. Special permits must be requested and granted only to scientists and explorers who wants to go through the end of the cave.

Be prepared for something different. I was expecting a river that actually flowed along a set course.. this is more of an underground cavern that is partially flooded.. none the less it is quite amazing and should be experienced, as well be sure to take a hike up the monkey trail .. also to do business in the small fishing village which is your take off point to the underground river.. Well worth the trip.
