Capisaan Caves is the fifth longest cave system in the country and ranked among of the best, considered a geologist’s paradise due to its varying rare calcite formations and unique stalagmite and stalactite formations. Within its four kilometer length is a subterranean river that doubles as a passageway to the best part of this multi-chambered cave. Parts of the cave network are the Lion and Alayan Caves, measuring 4.2 kilometers.
Nested in Malabung Valley in the highland town of Kasibu, Capisaan Caves is known to be the fifth longest cave system in the Philippines at 4.2 kilometers. With numerous chambers, halls and formations, the system is made up of eight interconnected caves – Alayan 1 and 2, Gaia/Malukbo 1 and 2, Lion, Sang-at Salug, Heaven and Sabrina. Of these eight, Alayan to Lion is the easily accessible and the usual tourist route. Meanwhile, Heaven and Sabrina are currently closed to tourists for preservation and scientific studies.
