The sparkling stalactites and stalagmites at Panhulugan Cave in Sohoton National Park, Basey, Samar are stunning. An incredible place to admire the splendor and beauty of nature, these spectacular structures were formed through millions of years of drip-dripping of liquid with magical minerals reacting with enchanting elements. They say that the biggest caves in the country can be found in Samar, that’s a goal for me in this lifetime.
