Ziplining at Ugong Rock and Exploring the Underground River in Palawan

On our second day in Puerto Princesa, we drove to Ugong Rock to go on the zipline.


We had to gear up for the climb first. It was so much fun and a lot easier than spelunking in Sagada!


See, I even got to strike a pose!


When we got to the top, the view was spectacular! I was both nervous and excited to go back down via the zipline.


Good thing I had my cheerleader with me! I gathered enough courage and went for it. During the first few seconds, it was a little scary. I felt as if my heart dropped! Then it became both thrilling and peaceful at the same time. Now I know how it feels like to fly!

The pretty Torres sisters!
Lunch by the beach--lovely view!

After a buffet lunch by the beach, we hopped on a boat to get to our next destination.



I felt like the boat ride was an adventure in itself! I love the ocean.


When we got there, we had to wait for about half an hour for our turn, but it was definitely worth it.


Off we go!



It was way too dark to take good photos inside the cave with my digicam. We tucked away our cameras and just looked around in awe. Our guide showed us the different formations, the bats, and the birds, and warned us about the droppings!
