A good place for a new traveller. This cave have hundreds of steps before you reach the main attraction. I would suggest to visit Callao Cave first before Sierra Cave to appreciate the mud. Callao Cave is a semi muddy place compare to Sierra Cave...More

The cave was amazing! The 184 steps are manageable to someone who doesnt do hiking. The floor is slippery so better be careful. Bring a good photographer or a good camera and everything will be perfect even if its rainy season :)

You will see huge caves and there is a place where they have a small church altar where they held some mass in some schedules. Nice place to see and explore.

The cave is really awesome plus the church they built inside makes it very unique. It's just sad that some people who visited the cave vandalized the walls. Our tour guide is very good not only in giving the tour but also in photography. She...More

We went here after Sagada. I suggest the reverse route--go here before Sagada because it was really hot 38 degrees as compared to Sagada's 19 degrees. It felt like sauna after a cold shower. It took us 5 hours to get here using Kalinga-tabuk road...More
