Aglipay Caves is an eco-tourism site in Barangay Villa Ventura, Aglipay, Quirino. There are over 37 caves in the area but only 8 are opened for tourism. There are not many guides here, in fact there are only 6 of them according to our guide, Vergel. Because of this we had to join another group.
Before the tour, Vergel explained how we would go about exploring the caves. He said we’d enter Cave 1, go through a forest, enter Cave 8, which is linked with Caves 2 and 3. Yes, in that order. Our adventure began a little after 1:00 in the afternoon. As mentioned, not all caves can be explored and there are those that you can enter upon request. Lastly, he reminded us to never touch the stalactites and the stalagmites.
If you’ve survived Sumaguing Cave in Sagada, then Aglipay should be easy for you. The only challenging part of exploring this cave is when you have to squeeze through some narrow tiny holes. There is also a section in the cave in which you have to do a duck walk due to the low ceiling.
Our caving adventure lasted for 1 hour and 40 minutes. There is an environmental fee of P25 and a guide fee of P125.

Our very first adventure in The province of Quirino began in Aglipay Caves. Caving can be both fun and dirty at the same time. Wearing just my aqua shoes, dri-fit pants and rash guard, i'm all set!
Its a rainy morning at around past 8am when we started. Upon entering we are given a briefing by the tour guide. I was reminded of my Sumaging cave experience in Sagada (t'was like around 5 years ago!). Took us around 2 hours, we brave the tight spaces, duck walking along ceilinged gaps , slippery rocks and would make you think yourself: "what the heck! We're paying to do this to ourselves!" But I must admit, all the hardships make me feel good right after the tour inside.
Experience: wooot! I loved it! Hopefully the guides can be more informative. But felt good being in this place once again.
