Puerto Princesa Underground River

Let us visit the waters in the Philippines.  Proudly presenting one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature - the Puerto Princesa Underground River.

The Puerto Princesa Underground River is known to be the longest navigable underground river in the world.  The entire catchment of the underground river is included in the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (PPSRNP).  PPSRNP is located about 76 kilometers northwest of Puerto Princesa City, facing the South China Sea.

Puerto Princesa City, the capital of Palawan province, can be reached by air and sea.  This site Bambua Nature Park Resort provides a good information on how to get to the Underground River.

For interested tourists who wish to visit PPSRNP, please take note of this booking notice:

Booking status of Puerto Princesa Underground River can be found in this link. As of this writing, booking schedules are "all open" from July to December 2012. (last update was done on May 15, 2012, 12:20 a.m. PST)

Bookings and other information for the Tour can be made at the Underground River Booking Office and are confirmed on a first come, first serve basis.

Notice is hereby given to the public not to be misled by pronouncements posted in the internet and other medium that going directly to the Park or staying overnight in Sabang (village) is a guarantee for the issuance of a Visitor Entry Permit to the Underground River Tour.  The Park denies the existence of such a policy nor has it authorized anybody to make such commitments.  These claims are inaccurate and are designed to promote private interests.

The above notice is found in the official website of Puerto Princesa Underground River.

This new Wonder of Nature is my next destination in two-months time.  Excited!

  1. In other words, they go against the grain of the careers
    their parents had. You must definitely be planning to make it special and memorable by keeping a good theme, ordering the best food and choosing
    the best games. 28.
