Hinagdanan Cave, Dauis, Panglao Island, Bohol

Some 1,400 caves have been identified in the province of Bohol Philippines, and one of the more popular and easy to reach is the Hinagdanan Cave in the town of Dauis in Panglao Island. Located in Barangay Bingang, which is around two and a half kilometers from the town proper, the Hinagdanan Cave is named as such because a hagdan, or ladder in the local dialect, takes visitors in and out of the cave.

The Hinagdanan Cave, classified as a karst cave, is a large cavern with several holes in the ceiling. It boasts of a large number of stalatites and stalagmites inside. The cave leads to a large underground pond. Both ends of the cave are open, providing natural light inside. The more adventurous locals and tourists sometimes take a dip in its cool waters. Those who have sensitive skin must, however exercise precaution in taking a dip because although the pond is located far below the ground, karst water is sensitive to any kind of pollution from the outside and might cause skin irritations.

    A tricycle ride from Tagbilaran City to Hinagdanan cave is actually not 5minutes. It’s far from the city. Rent a car or van or take a taxi to get there.
