Cacupangan Cave System in Mabini | Things to do in Mabini-Pangasinan
Named after the Cupang tree that filled the Mabini landscape in the 80s, the Cacupangan Cave System is a four kilometer stretch filled with breathtaking stalactite and stalagmite formations, delicately carved out by nature over centuries. Getting to the cave entrance means having to walk through a rough road with slightly threatening sharp rocks and slippery mud trails, but once inside the cave, the path strangely becomes less scary as the rocks underfoot become smoother and relatively more stable. Of course, those who go through the cave still have to be careful not to disturb the snakes, scorpions, and bats that call it home. They must also be prepared to get wet, as the water level inside the cave passage can sometimes be as deep as waist-level, depending on the season.
