OVERVIEW TOUR

The Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which recently has been named as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. This 8.2-kilometer subterranean river is the proud and persevering carver of the meandering path to the sea. Inside the cave, one can’t help but wonder how the artistry of Mother Nature has given birth to the spectacular formations of stalactites and stalagmites.

The trekking option of this adventure, an alternative to taking the boat ride, will take you through the old-growth forests of the National Park.  There are two trails that you can choose from: Monkey Trail and Jungle Trail. If you’re not into challenging climbs, which the Jungle Trail requires, don’t fret; the Monkey Trail is a lower-impact walk. Nevertheless, both trails offer lush greeneries, towering trees, fluttering butterflies, chirping birds, playing monkeys, the refreshing view of St. Paul Bay and much more! Discover the purity of untouched jewels that the Park has to offer. Experience the hike with the highly trained guides in Puerto Princesa who will take you on an unforgettable travel.

 

Highlights:

  • See the beauty of nature carved millions of years ago
  • Get a close encounter with nature and wildlife
  • Witness hundreds of bats, giant monitor lizards, monkeys, python, sea snakes and other wildlife.
  • Wonder by wandering through amazing rock formations inside the cave

The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (popularly known as the UNDERGROUND RIVER) is a must-see Perfect Natural Creation. Puerto Princesa’s pride is a UNESCO World Heritage site and recently has been proclaimed as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Believed to be one of the longest navigable subterranean rivers in the world, the UNDERGROUND RIVER, with its captivating rock formations that resembles amazing images beyond the capability of a human hand, is a tapestry of the creative excursions of Mother Nature.

Let’s patronize and help the Community Park Warden Association, an organization comprising indigenous people accredited by the PPUR management as Community Guides that is committed to preserving and protecting the environment. Best of all, the organization is devoted to achieving the eco-tourism sustainable development.

Underground River is a Day Tour Adventure.
The boat transfer to the entrance of the Underground River requires 15-20 minutes. The paddle boat transfer will take you inside the cave where you will witness magnificent features and rock formations created by Mother Nature. Paddling through the river, you will learn interesting snippets of information from your boatman and guide about the wonders of nature that unfold as you meander through.
Be prepared to get wet during the tour since you will be getting in and out of the boat.
For the trekking part, you can choose either the Jungle Trail or Monkey Trail. Obviously, trekking will take longer than the boat ride from Sabang Wharf to the Underground River. However, the trail will definitely be much more fulfilling and exciting, particularly to those who love hiking.

Note that the Jungle Trail is open daily for trekking from 8:00 AM TO 2:00 PM only. Thus, a one-way trekking trip would be to your best interest. You may take a boat ride from Sabang Wharf to the Underground River and trek through the trail going back or hike through the trail to the Underground River and take the boat ride going back to Sabang Wharf.
