My Extreme Caving Experience

25 Nov

This by far has been one of the most physically-demanding activity I’ve ever done in my entire life. And I thank E.A.T Danao in Bohol for offering us a complete Extreme Caving adventure. 

Last November 19, 2012, my friends and me challenged ourselves into this experience. Paying PHP550.00 per person, we conquered 2.5kms for over 2 1/2 hours. We started off with a 20-minute mountain trek to the entrance of the cave. This was quiet challenging because we had to walk through a path littered with foreign cogon grass and extremely difficult slopes. Generally, we had to fit ourselves through very small crevices inside the cave and we had to entirely depend on our helmet lights because without it, the cave was completely pitch dark. Not the kind of dark you experience normally where your eyes will eventually adjust. This was the kind of darkness that stayed dark. We had to conquer the creepy cave creatures such as spiders, cockroaches, worms, snakes and thousands of pooping bats. There were several times we had to be on all-fours and we had to be extra careful before we held on to random rocks or else we’d end up getting bitten by poisonous insects or arachnids. We also had to survive dangerous activities like rappelling down a cliff without any harness and crossing from one end of a really steep cliff to the other using one rope. We had to completely devoid ourselves from any attempt to keep ourselves clean. By the time we got out, we were completely covered with mud. To top everything off, we had to endure a waist-deep really brown river to finally exit from the cave.




All these we were able to finish through the help of our three guides who patiently helped us every step of the way. I am extremely proud of myself for being able to finish this activity. 🙂 They told us that they’ll be opening an Ultimate Caving activity soon, and now that I’ve been able to experience the Extreme Caving, I’d be very excited to try the next level of caving here in E.A.T Danao. 😀

Till then loves, toodles! 🙂

    The photos were amazing. You are brave. Never know what you will find hiding in the caves.
