Like a deformed cathedral, the Umang Cave interior is illuminated by natural windows. There are millions of bats flying in circles and a petrified hill of guano. The cave’s entrance is about 30 feet above sea level and the interior is architecturally designed. The air is very cool inside. It is dark but if it is be lighted, it shows grand beauty.

Location

The cave is situated in Barrio Paniman, Caramoan.

How to Get There

By Air

The province of Camarines Sur can be reached by plane within a flying time of 45 minutes. Flights are serviced by the Air Philippines (Pal Express), Zest Air, and Cebu Pacific from Manila to Naga City Airport (the capital of the province). Riding a plane is the quickest way to go to the province.

By Land

Air-conditioned and non-air-conditioned buses like PhilTranco, Isarog Bus Co., and Peñafrancia Bus Lines ply daily through the Quirino Highway from Manila to Naga.

--- From Naga, you can ride a jeepney going to Caramoan, with a travel time of about 5 hours.

Going Around

Buses, vans, and jeepneys are mostly used in traveling outside Naga City and going to other towns of Camarines Sur. Taxis are available as well, but with double charge or price depending on your negotiation with the driver.

In other municipalities, jeepneys, tricycles, and trisikad (manpowered tricycles) are the main transportation.
