Bayan ng Tanay, Rizal Lalawigan, Philippines is home to Calinawan Cave. The location is fascinating since the cave's inside displays a variety of rock forms. The cave is totally dry and devoid of moisture. We have just looked at the first five of the seven strata, according to the tour guide. The legend surrounding Calinawan Cave is that it was the site of a movie shot by the legendary Jackie Chan. The cave is often used as a filming site for national and international projects. Additionally, local teleseryes, like the first mermaid in Dyesebel, are filmed in this cave. In the cave, I managed to photograph Dyesel's exact spot. Sad to say, some people have ruined several sections of the cave by picking at the stones and minerals.

this cave was not in our itinerary but since it's proximal to daranak falls, we took a quick turn to visit before we headed to pililia.

it was a welcome surprise! calinawan cave is something to marvel at. it used to be a hush-hush location for old movies and TV shows that needed an underground setting. our tour guide took very good fotos of us while explaining each facet of the rock formations inside as well as the history of the place. our helmets served their purpose.

it was humid inside but the inconvenience was worth it. for 30 minutes, we explored up to the 2nd out of the 5 sections of the cavern. we would have gone deeper but due to time constraints, we opted to head to the exit.

nice place. very good experience.

I was pleasantly surprised by this cave and rather enjoyed our walk through it with a guide, who was fairly knowledgeable. There are no lights or commercialization here, so it is handy to have a torch - I used my phone. There are some interesting formations on level 1 and 2 - where we went. You are issued with a helmet when you go in. We did not do level 3 to 5, as it involved crawling and tight spaces, etc. it’s not a “must see” place, but glad we went, as we combined it with a trip to the Daranak Falls. It was slippery, wet and muddy in places. It also has a bit of military history.

This is our first experience to enter a cave and it was a bit scary for me and my youngest as there were wet and slippery portions in the cave. The rock formations and the experience itself is priceless.

It was nice to quickly visit but not I recommend. Some stalactites and stalagmites lost its beauty where apparently some TV or movie production was made and placed some glitters all over them and on the wall. We just stayed there for 15 minutes.

Calinawan Cave

This is the best part of our side trip at Tanay, Rizal.

This cave is one of the "taping spots" of our local tv shows such us Encantadia, Probinsyano, Mulawin and Bagani as shared by one of our very informative tourist guides.

As I have observed, there were no more bats inside the cave, maybe because it was widely explored from ordinary adventurers to tv personalities.

On the other hand, you can have the opportunity to witness crystal rocks and other rock formations like the Banana in Pajamas.

Kindly avoid touching crystals because they immediately die and become ordinary rocks once any foreign objects touched them.

Hopefully this is somewhat helpful to you.🤗

PS: This is part of the tour package that we joined into. There is 💯 pesos entrance fee for the cave.

Remember to "Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footprints 👣, kill nothing but time" (I have read this in one of my trips to Sagada. Well, it also applies here)

alinawan Cave has now become a favorite tourist attraction in Tanay. Used to be the cave occupied by the Japanese army. There is a separate tour guide for this cave. Entrance fee is 200 pesos plus additional fee for the protective headgear.

the tourist guides are very knowledgeable. the lead is so funny and at the same time, mindful of the safety of the tourists. thumbs up!
the entrance fee of 40p only includes layers 1-2 but for an extra voluntary fee, you can tour layers 3-4-5 which is, to me, the height of the tour!
