PPUR – The New 7 Wonders of Nature

In the middle of last month, we went to Palawan for a three-day getaway to visit and see what the nature in Palawan offered. It was just recently that Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park became one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature and off we went and didn’t waste time not to visit the place. It is known to be the longest navigable underground river with distinguishable stalactites and stalagmites formations and several chambers inside. It also featured a limestone mountain landscape at its mouth that opens directly to the West Philippine Sea which people know it commonly as the South China Sea.

One good thing is that they have utilized the indigenous natives as forest guide for people who are nature trekking lover and without them… you surely would need a gps tracker if you don’t want to be lost in the thick rain forest of St. Paul Mountain Range. The thick rain forest serves as a background for the underground river and is already one of the tourist’s destinations in the town of Sabang. It is one of the eight important forest formations found in tropical Asia and was inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. But the whole Palawan itself is one of the most biodiverse natural land and seascapes in the world.

    I have absolutely enjoyed your photos sir! Super nice! I wish to step foot in Palawan someday and to navigate this Underground River, too. I’ve seen a lot of snaps of this place, but each time, it is always beautiful to see, just like what you shared. :)
