The Puerto Princesa Subterranean National Park, where the Underground River is found, has been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1999. It has also been chosen as one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World. The Underground River Tour is a whole day tour starting from Puerto Princesa City, Palawan, Philippines. The tour calls for a two-hour ride to Sabang, a short boat ride from the wharf to Sabang Beach, the entrance of the Underground River, and the actual boat ride going inside the cave. Each group is assigned a boatman with paddle boat equipped with a search light. The boatman gives a running commentary while viewing the formations inside the pitch-dark recesses. A most impressive area inside would be the 'cathedral', towering some 800 meters in height.
