Delving into Calbiga Cave, Philippines


                       We’ll be in the Calbiga cave for two days

                                                                                        And you’ll only see a tiny part of the cave…


“You cannot imagine the scale, the tunnels of the Samar caves are infinite.

You can climb across the rocks for hours, days, and not reach the end”

We’ll sleep in the cave, eat in the cave, even $#!+ in the cave

                                                             …but we carry that back out with us

“We will camp at the football field, a giant chamber next to an underground lake.”


The Calbiga Langun cave is the largest in the Philippines

                                                                       and currently ranked the 4th largest in the world

900 square km of grand tunnels and soaring chambers carved by the rivers that wind beneath the steamy jungle

“Caving is one of the only ways you can be an explorer in the 21st century.” J. Bonifacio

“We’re still exploring, maybe one day we’ll find some of the other huge caves nearby join into Calbiga. Samar could still have the worlds largest cave.”


                                                                                     Thanks to Joni Bonifacio for the tour of Calbiga

Steve was a geologist, hiding on the west coast of Tasmania growing damp, stale and moldy in the cool mountain air. In early 2010 he escaped, quit his job, sold most of his worldly goods, slung a guitar on his back and hit the road. He is now living the life of a travelling expat, bouncing in and out of the jungle clad mountains of Laos.
