Puerto Princesa part 3 - Sabang

We took a one day trip to Sabang, where the world's longest underground river is located. We had a two hour drive there. At Sabang we took a banka (=boat) to get to the bay where the underground river stars. There we waited for an hour for the boat ride in the mountain. After the underground river we took a hike over 3 mountains, 6,2km, and finished off with a walk on the beach all the way back from where started. There we ate lunch, I fed the homeless dogs, I searched for my lost phone and we drew home.
A Successful but exhausting day!

 A lot of stairs = a lot of work. 
What goes up...

must come down!
Imagine doing this in muddy slippery wet rubber flip-flops. Thought so... I took mine of and walked barefoot.

Can you see what this root is :)?
