Visting Pangihan Cave of Malay Dec 14, 2016

Visting Pangihan Cave of Malay

Location Google Map: Pangihan Cave, Malay (municipality), Aklan (province), Philippines

Talked to the Guide
Off the bat, let me make it clear I only went to the mouth of the cave - I did not explore the inside. I went to the municipality to talk to the tourism people when I realized the cave was just a short walk away. But I wasn't prepared to get muddy inside the cave - I didn't prepare for it. But I went there anyway, talked to the resident guide, Mr. Jesus, and got more information about the cave.

Cave Chambers
Pangihan Cave is right smack within the Malay Poblacion. It has 8 connecting chambers although the guide with only take you to 2 bat-filled chambers. There is a traverse route which can take 30 minutes without the picture taking inside. Inside is muddy with stone steps but has no subterranean stream. Total length is 275 meters with stalactites and stalagmites.
