The St. Paul's Underground River is one of the world's longest navigable underground rivers and one of the few such rivers where tourists can easily experience it. Areas of the river within the park are covered by primary forest which is home to many endemic species of animals and plants and encompass an unusual variety of ecosystems. The river is located within Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. The park is about 81 kilometers from Puerto Princesa City (approximately 3 hours overland). You will pass through the picturesque countryside and through the town of Sabang en route. From there, it is a 20 minute outrigger boat ride to the park where you board a smaller outrigger canoe for the journey inside the underground river. The boast travels 3 kilometers into the cave, where you will see a spectacular display of rock formations and cathedral-like chambers that have been naturally formed millions of years ago. The river has also been recently declared as a World Heritage Site. Don't forget to bring your swimsuit for swimming!
