Lumiang Cave is also called Lumiang Burial Cave, because there are hanging coffins in the entrance hall of the cave. During the 18th and 19th century the cave served as a burial ground. There is a paved trail to the cave entrance and into the huge entrance portal. A stone staircase leads down to a platform, from where the coffins can be seen. There is a gate, so visitors cannot go to the actual burial ground. But the trails and here, still in the daylight part of the cave.

Cave tours are offered with local guides. There are no trails and no light inside the cave, and while the cave is quite spacious and has no vertical sections, the tours are definitely cave trekking tours. It seems Filipino visitors are rather careless and go into the cave even without shoes. We actually recommend good walking shoes.
