This is one of the main attractions of Sohoton National Park. The entrance of the cave is parabolic-arc-shaped and with the height of fifty (50) meters. The cathedral-like entrance chamber of the cave is definitely inviting with its fantastic view outside and the cool breeze emanating from the cave. The flat door is about 20 meters by 50 meters

Spiky-shaped and other shape of stalactite will be observed in its ceiling and wall. From the cave you can see a natural swimming pool where most of the tourists loved to swim and do the binge eating after.

The Sohoton cave is a cathedral-like dome with an entrance of a parabolic arch-type for about fifty-meters high.  It has a flat door area near the entrance, about twenty (20) meters in width and fifty-meters in length.  On its ceiling hangs spike-shaped crystalline stalactites and rustic and cavernous walls and stalagmites on the cave’s floor.  At the far end of the cave are a prince-like window and a balcony overlooking the natural swimming pool below.  Located within the Sohoton National Park. – Read More:  samar.lgu-ph.com

Experiencing Sohoton Caves is like a having a flashback to a very distant past…  Sohoton Caves, or more appropriately, the Sohoton Natural Bridge National Park is situated at Rawis, Brgy. Guirang in Basey, Samar.  Fascinating geological features abound in the 840-hectare park such as caves, limestone boulders, rock holes, weathered formation rocks and underground rivers.  The National Park is reached by boat that can be chartered in Tacloban or, more cheaply, in Basey, Samar. 

Basey is about 45 minutes by car from Tacloban passing through the famed San Juanico Bridge. Tours start at the Basey pier, where a pump boat, tour guide, and light men are rented. It is another 45-minute ride by pump boat up a winding river passing through small villages, nipa palms on the banks and a motley parade of river crafts.

Upon approaching the park, one will notice outright a change in the scenery as river banks with magnificent limestone walls and overhangs come into view.  One feels being transported instantly to another place and time… back to prehistoric eras.  Read More:  https://gerryruiz.wordpress.com/2008/07/26/sohoton-caves/
