PUERTO PRINCESA SUBTERRANEAN RIVER NATIONAL PARK

To reach the town of Sabang, it takes about 2.5-3 hours land trip from downtown Puerto Princesa City. (Sabang is STILL in Puerto Princesa City. One of our guides previously mentioned that Puerto Princesa is
the largest city and not Davao City.) The road conditions are much better now compared to 1998. Then, the paved road only lasts for about 30 mins. The rest is dirt road.

Package tours range from P1,200 to P1,500/pax depending on which agency
you book. This already includes ride to Sabang, lunch, boat and entrance fees. If you wish to arrange for your own tour, the boat is
rented for P600 (6? pax capacity), entrance is P150 per head, rented van costs P3000. You provide for your own lunch. Restaurants at Sabang is limited, not much choices.

Aside from the boat ride, another way to reach the underground river is by "monkey trail".
