When in the Philippines, and you’re looking for an easy yet breathtaking adventure up north where you can bring your family and friends along, the Callao Caves in the Cagayan Valley Region is a definite place to go.
The Callao caves are located in Peñablanca, Cagayan near Tuguegarao.
Peñablanca came from two spanish words “Peña” which means “rock” and “blanca” which means white which you’ll see later on in the photos.
The only thing you have to brace for are the 183 steps going into the cave entrance.
As you go higher you’ll definitely feel it getting cooler.
But a 4-year old kid was able to do it, so can you.
It’s a limestone cave so stalactites and stalagmites have formed inside.
The Callao caves is composed of seven chambers. Each chamber has natural light streaming in which makes for amazing plays of texture and shadows.
