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.
The cave is situated in Barrio Paniman, Caramoan.
