The Undisturbed Cave of Hagakgak


The beautiful island of Bohol holds a lot of natural wonders that are just waiting to be discovered. Hagakgak Cave is one such spectacle that one should not miss visiting during a vacation in this island paradise. The Hagakgak Cave is still quite undisturbed. The entrance is a 15-meter wide passage at the base of a sinkhole. This cave is a bit more difficult, and it can be quite wet and muddy inside. To enter, you'll at times have to wriggle yourself through some narrow passages. But once inside, you'll be rewarded with some nice stalactites and stalagmites. This cave is the home of some animals which have adapted to a life underground, such as rare albino crabs of the species sundathelphosa filipina and varieties of fish.
