Adventure in Balay sa Agta cave in Argao, Cebu: House of the Giant

Great adventure, fun and excitement at Balay sa Agta cave in Argao, Cebu. Balay sa Agta or House of the Giant is one of the most interesting and challenging place specially for those who loves trekking and adventure. We took some photos and videos of our adventure in this great cave.

There were lots of mountainers, foreigners and tourists who went inside the cave and all of them put a 5 star rating because according to them it's all worth it and it's very beautiful to see inside Balay sa Agta.

Me and my three friends (dioram, bob and abby) accepted this challenge and conquer our fear of heights. Before going inside the cave you'll have to cross that 1ft width nga agianan while naghupo para dili mapakong sa dakong bato. Well, the other side is a cliff where according to our guide na there's one tourist fell down and died. Thanks to our guide because they provided us safety measures like a harnes and a rope to hold while crossing that dangerous part.

The most excited and interesting part is when you're inside the cave. You will discover and personally see and touch the rock formations inside the cave (Stalagmites and Stalactites). There's a part of the cave where there's a hole above and the sunlight goes in. Our sample pictures will explain and let you see what's inside the Balay sa Agta cave in Argao, Cebu and how beautiful it is.

Tips: We suggest that you don't bring too much stuff and don't bring bulky bags because it's too difficult specially when entering the cave.
