Cagayan De Oro Tour: Macahambus Cave

Cagayan de Oro - Camiguin, Philippine Tour

Day 4

After our fear-conquering experience at the skybridges and zipline, our next stop is about nature and history - the Macahambus Cave.

The Macahambus Cave is at the Macahambus Hill. Filipino spelunkers would surely like this cave's picturesque cavern and at the same time feel some national pride because of its historical significance.

The cave provided strategic location because of its elevation and view of the Cagayan de Oro river. That is perhaps the main reason why Filipinos won the Battle of Macahambus Hill in 1900 against the Americans. That was the first ever victory of the Filipinos over the Americans.

The cave is dark inside so the overhead flash lights over by kids came in handy. For about some 5-10 meter walk, at some point you have to stoop, you will then reach a veranda like platform overlooking the Cagayan de Oro river and the whitewater rafters nearing their disembarkation point. The kids will gladly took our pictures. We rewarded the 3 kids with Php 50.

After Manong Rey brought us to SM Cagayan De Oro where we had a light snack and whil away some time before going to Lumbia Airport to take our flight home.
