Panhulugan Cave I is entered through two parallel passages, which are about 50m apart and have a perpendicular connecting passage. The following chambers are up to 17m high and have multiple speleothems. At the end the cave branches out in a maze of various levels of passages.
Opposit the cave entrace is Panhulugan Cliff, at its foot a narrow curve of the Sohoton River. Filipino rebels used this cliff as an ambush area during the Filipino-American war. They threw rocks and logs on the U.S. Marines which were coming up the river. The name Panhulugan is derived from the waray-waray word hulug, which means to drop from atop.
