It is a cave
Nov 2019 • Friends
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.

A Nature’s Wonder messed by TV production
Feb 2018 • Friends
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.

To the Cave
Feb 2018
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)

Awesome
Feb 2018 • Family
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!

Interesting side trip from Danarak Falls
Aug 2017 • Friends
We didn't know about the cave beforehand. We just saw a sign while on the way to Danarak and decided to ask around. A word of advice for anyone wanting to bring a car - while the road to Danarak was still fine, to Calinawan a 4x4 would definitely be needed.
The fee as of 08/17 was 40php per person plus 200php for a guide for the group.
The trek inside was definitely doable, and the amount of time it takes depends on up to which layers of the cave your group would like to do. We only did the first two, as we not only had limited time but also, looking at the entrance to the third it seemed a bit too much for our group hehe.
The cave floor is slippery so keep that in mind when choosing footwear.
