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.

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.

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...More
