Tulawog cave is located in San Antonio Siquijor. Its consist of many tubs that have fresh and cold water. It compromises an underground system of seldom frequented natural limestone tunnels and rock chambers. Its not yet known and there are only few travelers who able visit this cave.
One of our friends said that there is a beautiful cave here in Siquijor. He said that we will enjoy swimming there. We ask him if it’s safe for a kids. He answered ”Yes”.So we decided to go in the cave with him and my daughter. We drive fourthy five minutes from Dumanhog Siquijor using our motorbike. It is not easy for us to get to the cave from the highway because the road is just small and its not cement. But as what i observe you can easily go through if your motorbike is normal not the scooter.
We going down in Tulawog Cave
As we arrived in the front of the Tulawog cave i’m in shocked because for me its really hard to enter in the cave. I’m so scared for my daughter. I expect that there’s many tourist coming in this cave but nobody is here. When you entering in the cave you need to go down in the slippery stone and its too dark. You really need flashlight. Only one wrong move you will fall down and its really not safe. I told them that i don’t want to enter in the cave for the seek of my daughter but they convinced me to enter and my boyfriend promise me that he will take good care of my daughter. So i decided to come with them with my daughter.
As I step in the slippery stone going down i felt my chest bursting. I’m so scared for my daughter and boyfriend. My daughter is always crying on our way because she is so scared. When we are in the middle of the Tulawog cave someone came and they said that they are a tour guide. So we decided to take them as our tour guide because they are familiar in this place and they know everything about this cave. We need to go down again using a ladder. Its easy for us now because our tour guide assisting and helping us to go down

According to our tour guide the local government was planning to develop Tulawog Cave before but they stop developing it because there is many accident happen here like the tourist lost there things.
We only swim thirty minutes inside the cave because our flashlight and cellphone is in low battery. If we stayed longer inside we don’t have light to use. Its easy to us to go up because we only climb.
On our way home from Tulawog Cave we visited the hidden lake. Hidden lake is looks like fishpond but the water is so captivating. The hidden lake have many different kind of fish and the water is color blue. The water here is so cold that’s why my boyfriend and his friend enjoy swimming here.
