Reader Comments on 'Bohol, Cave Country'

The island province of Bohol may aptly be called "Cave Country." Some 1400 caves have been counted, and probably many more have escaped notice.

One day I have dreamt of being in Bohol again to find my family, but I have lost contact with them. The Logronio family I know lives in Buenavista and Bulawarti if I mispelled that sorry. If anyone knows of them please give this message. My mother is Clara Rabanes and father was Pabling,Pablo or Paul Logronio. Father has other children. Pia, Raul And Paul my half siblings I lost contact since traveling much and gaining all the experiences to continue writing about the path I chose to walk in dating back during WWII. Currently living in Nevada USA a full time student working on BBA in Marketing with 7 cats, 4 dogs and 2 computers and still single. I believe one returns to where one was conceived, according to mother, on December 1956 on a stormy night had to put her on a banka, walang pera, but had to get to Cebu to a hospital to deliver me. Wow suhe daw at iyan ang sabit ng manghihilot. I want to go back and retire with our caves, tarziers, and our chocolate hills, and of course our natural medicines.Gulay at iba pang masarap na hipon, alimasag, pusit, mais at kong ano pa. Na accidente lang ako at natamaan ang ulo ko haya nakakalimot na kaayo. If anyone reads this letter of appreciation that I am a Boholanon wanting to come home. God Bless you and have a wonderful year coming ahead. Thanks for reading. Lek Lek or Daisy is fine

You could have came up with a more interesting and less frightening description of the cave. too bad my friends and I were supposed to visit caves in bohol when we get there this Aug. 15, 09, now it's less interesting.

You're right Bohol is a cave country. When I was a kid I saw a cave in Barangay Punta Cruz in Maribojoc, Bohol. The cave, which has an exit on the other side of a hill, is often used by boy scouts during camping days in Punta Cruz, near the famous watchtower. I don't any idea why the local leaders and tourism officials are not promoting the cave--only the overexposed watchtower which could be seen daily in the WOW videoke as background by crooners in the country. Another thing, there is an underground cave in Barangay Lagtangon, near Punta Cruz. When I was a kid we used to get fresh water near the underground cave using the old timba. We used the water for the household need of our aunt's house in Lagtangon. After taking a bath in the sea, we used to peep through the hole and shout to hear echoes from this undiscovered cave which has not entry. This needs further investigation by the local tourism office. Of course I had visited the famous Hinagdangan cave in Panglao Island. The water there is cool. Even picnickers in nearby towns go there on Sundays to take a dip. There's a need for the province for form its own spelunking clubs to promote the thousands of caves in Bohol. Someday I am planning to retire in Bohol, in my old hometown of Maribojoc. By the way I am writing this from my Makati office.

What is the provincial government and the local baranggay officials on that particular place doing to protect these valuable natural assets of the locality? Is there any local ordinance of any kind that preserve,control the treasures of our unique natural enviroment? I think locals dont realize that it can generate little income out of it. Wake up fellow paisanos ! we are talented people, lets shows the world what we can do and what we did....this reflects of who we are by what we have.....

I am so glad I browsed through this site. I am from and living here in Bohol and I have always been very proud of its natural wonders, Bohol caves among others. I agree that caves did play an important role in our local history and culture - such as Dagohoy's revolt against the Spaniards as well as this old tale of our old folks borrowing utensils (ex. golden plates) from spirits that dwell in the caves). This is a very interesting literature as I plan to do more research and exploring of Bohol's caves and hopefully come up with a coffee table book or some other medium in collaboration with some of the local artists here as a way of preserving,reviving (if you will), and promoting Bohol's cultural heritage.

We should be promoting more of Philippine tourism, we have so many things to offer. About the article, all sounds so inviting and exciting, but still we lack promotion.

Indeed! Bohol got its name . "a cave country". Because there are so many caves to explore. To name one, HINAGDANAN CAVE is a naturally made cave, its really amazing how god created it. Many think of it as a man made cave. But to tell you it is already existing since then but only few years ago palang na discover. hehehe . so?. If u are a spelunker , come, visit, explore, and enjoy the scenery of Hinagdanan cave and other caves of Bohol.:).

I'm from Loboc, too. Nong Ondoy is right, we also have this "Guimba" cave. according to my late Lola, this was there hide-out during the Japanese invasion. From thereunder via a tunnel-like structure, they just walked their way to Bilar town. Just don't know how true it is that there were several treasures hidden therein and that nobody could get through the said cave for fear of the creatures living there after being abandoned by the war evacuees.

Bohol Caves and Nature... I am from Loboc Bohol, Talking about caves in Bohol, well it's really an opportunity to explore all this wonderful caves that natures can give. Bohol is a wonderful place to explore. We have caves too in Loboc, that folks commonly called it the " Guimba Cave ", Long before we use to gather " Guano " a kind of rich soil a replaceable element to Modern Fertilizer from that cave. It is also said that these Guimba Cave traverse under the Loboc river then to the town of Lila.(this saying on Guimba Cave that I would love to explore someday during my free time.) Of course a whole lot of outstanding sightseeing inside that even yourself could hardly believe on how the things being shape underneath. Well, folks around the world who loves adventures why not try to have your experience held differently.. in Bohol..

I don't know who wrote this story about Hinagdanan Cave in Bingag, Dauis, Bohol. First of all, I my wife is from Bingag and before we migrated here in the U.S., we used to stay there. In fact I learned how to swim at Hinagdanan Cave. The last time I went home lastJune, this year, I took a bath in this cave and I guarantee you the water is so clean. It's a running water, the fact that during low tide, it's visible the water coming out in the rocks in the shore. The only problem that I noticed was that Souvenir stores are almost eating the spaces close to the mouth of the cave. I don't know if this structures were built legally but it destroys the landscape on top of the cave. I wish the local leadership converted the top portion of the cave into a park so tourists will be attracted on coming back. I don't know if this will happen since almost every space privately owned structures are already existing.

If that is that balite tree on the right hand side of the road (when coming from Tagbilaran), I have never heard about a cave underneath it. Maybe some other visitors can tell.--Jeroen.

I visited Bohol last Nov. 4-6 and it was realy one great experience! I really loved the place..Actually I was imagining Hinagdanan Cave to be a mountain in which there s a road tracker just to reach the cave. It was a great surprise for me that when we arrived in the cave I found no mountain but instead a gateway to enter the cave down under the ground we're standing.. it was already developed since it has stairways & lights were already installed inside the cave.. I would just like to correct the one in this article.. "but swimming in the pool is not advisable as the waters there are not clean". The water in the cave is very clear and swimming is permitted since we asked the people there to be able to correct the article in this site. But nyway. uts really great being in Bohol! I really love to be back in Bohol again...opps! before I forget, I would like to thank Roselo Cinches, a mototrist & boholano whom we met. Thanks for letting us see the beauty og Bohol. See you again!

Hinagdanan Cave is really a nature wonder. It is a beautiful underground scenery that you dont see very often. Its a good size cave with water in the middle where you can swim and have a dip! That was years ago when we went swimming there so Im not sure if current visitors there are still allowed to swim inside the cave. Its like being in a indoor pool but better because its Hinagdanan Cave, its ALL natural, and when you look around you, you see rock formations up, down, all sides...you are in the cave so it is naturally dark and mysterious but it has few sun lights poking out from upper hole(s) and entrance.

Hinagdanan? although they have not provided the group ample time to enjoy the water....still it makes me feel cleanse inside and out! So relaxing; a nice place to find oneself in solitary moments! Stress and worry relieving that merely looking to the formation of minerals makes me forget everything!

It's been about 15 years since the last time i saw Hinagdanan. Im here right now in front of my computer searching for pictures and i was directed to this page and here i am cant stop crying. I was born there, right next to that cave. I remember, my lolo (grandpa) and my late lola (grandma) used to have a lil store over there and we used to get a lot of visitors. I remember we used to go swimming in that cave almost everyday. Thats when i first started swimming (about 3 years old). Me and my two other sister used to go under the crystal clear water and look for some coins so we can buy these lil tamarind candies. And sometimes me and my friends used to play hide and seek and tryna play tagging in the water. During summer time, me, my sisters, and my friends used to go look for spiders, guavas, and some vines for the goats. They used to have that wooden fence around the cave entrance and we used to kill our times telling stories, eating, or taking a nap in the back. I miss those wonderful memories. I am more than excited to go back over there!

My friend who hails from Panglao, Bohol and invites me to attend their fiesta celebration there. For me it was so unforgetable momment in my life since since i could not beleive of what I've witness and shared a lot of makan (eating) and 3 days celbration before fiesta, on fiesta and after fiesta. Really the people there are very hospitable. We went to the beaches which sorrounds Panglao, Bohol Beach Club, Dumaluan Beach, Dive Perfect Bon, and a lot of foreigners are visiting there as well. Also I can't forget when we went there at Hinagdanan cave in Dauis, Panglao island. Long live Bohol specially Panglao isalnd. Very nice place to visit. Thanks to my friend Engr Alex de Leon for allowing my self to go there.

My wife (a Boholana) took me to the Hinagdanan cave and we went swimming there - with no ill effects! I think someone told me that swimming is no longer allowed there now. It was a very novel and interesting experience - well worth a visit whether you want to swim or not!

My stayed in Bohol has become my great and good experience in my whole life. I visited the Hinagdanan Cave, Man-made forest,Loboc River and its tarsier,Baclayon Church,...etc...But the part which I admired most in Bohol was its famous Chocolate Hills which I thought it was existing only in my dreams...And my dreams was turned for real when I touched the soil on one of the hill. But when I was there the Hills were not Choco but it's green...hehehe.... I wrote this comments so I could thanks for the Boholanos who were very friendly and accomodating. My husband and I have plan to go back the most famous Island of Bohol next year. P.S. I admired also the Camp Verde in Duero, Bohol...It's too cold there even it was 12:00 noon....it's cool..and take note...Admission is FREE....thanks...

This is a very pleasant description to our beloved homeland. I'm a Boholano who now live in Iligan. I work with NGO's which have projects in Jandig, Maribojoc, Bohol. I could attest to the truth of Bohol being a cave country. In my village in Jandig there are at least 18 caves that we counted. One of this have an underground stream 130 meters below the surface. This water is now pumped using a hydraulic ram pump which our NGO, Life for Water, helped to construct in 2004. Along the valley where the cave was located is another 4 deep caves that we believe to be connected to each other because of the good ventilation when you are down-under. It would be great if anyone of you will get interested to this caves in Jandig. Our group have already organized a group of local residents who have good experience in exploring caves. Rey V.

Im a frequent visitor of inambacan cave in Antequera. the best part of the cave is the entrance where u have make a step across a hole where a strong current is rushing and making through a narrow passage 5 to 10 meters long where u have to squat while keeping ur head up to be able to breathe thin air. man, its realy an adventure!!!!!

Bohol's caves are nice so we must know how to protect it. For those who still not visit Bohol, visit now and enjoy....

Bohol caves are nice. It would have been much nicer if the people visiting these areas are too careful not to throw their garbages or wastes anywhere. They must practice self-discipline. And one more thing, we must take care of our environment.

Hinagdanan cave was a famous cave here in the Hhilippines especially in Bohol particularly in my hometown Dauis sitio Bingag. It is very nice and wonderful to see and to witness to everyone who would like to visit in our beautiful cave here in the Province of Bohol. I truly give my very best wishes and proud to our natures that was given by our Almighty Father.

its great! but at least something must be mention about how to get to these beautiful caves from either tagbilaran or jagna ports. people even from outside the country may want to visit these caves after reading through this article but find great difficulty getting there. can someone do something about it?

Have some dive in Hinagdanan Cave. The water is so clear!:)

I wouldn't always trust the clearness of the water as an indication of its healthiness! I myself would advise against swimming here, although I've seen other people doing it.--Jeroen.

Hi, this is a really good website! :) Anyway, I recently watched a feature on Bohol and they showed this cave that is connected to another. There's rapelling involved to enter the caves.. I wonder what cave that is? anyone? I just need this info so I can carefully plan our itinerary in Bohol. Thanks!

bohol is really a great place, i just want to share to everyone, that we used to be able to swim in the pond at the hinagdanan cave, however due to the neglect of people the water and the cave itself became dirty... but i do hope that someday it will be restored and when i come back i would be able to swim again.

This is a good article and I think it is really time that people will discover this beautiful island's caves. There are really a lot to discover specially in the central and northeastern part of the island, specifically Anda and Guindulman and even Mabini. Batuan and Carmen also. The list goes on, can I add something on your article the next time it would come out? Thanks. Good job. This is the best website for any tourist destination in the Philippines.

Thanks for the compliment. Everybody is welcome to write articles for this website, and if you have pictures to add to it: the more the better! -- Jeroen.
