Tour C El Nido Palawan Island Hopping

Mother Nature is an extraordinarily skilled sculptor, an artist that no human can hope to match. She paints skies with dazzling colors and whittles away immense cave systems to form strange cathedrals.

Rock Climbing in Poog

Too often, we see this scenario: a group of excited and enthusiastic people show up at the crag in Cantabaco to try out the sport of rock climbing for the first time. Usually, guides set up the two classic 5.8 routes—Vulva and Hait—for them to try out. Heaving, huffing, puffing, and screaming, the first-timers make their way up the routes.
