weekend snapshot #6

Posted by Kero at Sunday, October 28, 2007


I am taking you to the subterranean river in Puerto, Princesa, Palawan, Philippines this weekend. Hubby and i spent a weekend there last year. A world heritage inscribed by UNESCO, this natural wonder features an 8.2 kilometers, navigable underground river. Reputed to be the world's longest river that winds through a spectacular cave before emptying out into the South China Sea.


My snapshot as we approached the entrance of the underground river.


An example of what you see inside, amazing rock formations,
numerous stalactites and stalagmites.



After an hour of darkness inside the cave,
we finally saw a light we thought to be the exit...


But this happened to be the exit.


And this is how we looked like the whole trip: with skull guard and life vests.
That is us (the younger couple, naks!) with a Fil-Am couple vacationing from California.

The experience remains one of our best weekends ever. Thank you again for dropping by, have a great week ahead everyone and till next entry!

20 sweets for Kero:

We almost have the same shots of the Underground River. I have also snapshots of your first four. So you also heard the stories of the different shapes of the stones? And the bats' urine? :D

Beautiful!! You are lucky you've been to Palawan! I am ashamed to say I live in the Phils but have never been there. Though I've vowed not to return to Boracay until I visit Palawan. :)
