Langun-Gobingob Cave Entrance | Image Source
Langun-Gobingob Caves, officially called Langun-Calbiga Cave System, are the largest cave system in the Philippines and is the second largest in Asia covering an area of almost 3,000 hectares. The cave system has 12 interconnected caves and many of them are still unexplored. Reaching the entrance of the cave alone requires more than an hour of walking through flat grounds as well as climbing hills and mountains with slippery trails.
Within the caves are magnificent stalagmites and stalactites, natural springs,giant chandeliers, deep pools, unique rock formations, and subterranean water courses. Animals such as bats, cave crickets, crabs, and hypogean blind fish also inhabit the caves.
The cave system’s main and largest chamber called the “Football Field” is approximately the size of three football fields and leads to an upper level. Exploring all parts of the caves takes up to three days and many hours of walking, climbing, and rappelling so make sure to prepare physically prior to your trip.
The Langun-Calbiga Cave System is located in Samar dubbed as the Caving Capital of the country due to many other caves on the island.
