All about the Underground River.

The Underground River or Subterranean River in Palawan is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

It is the longest navigable underground river in the world, winds its way underneath a mountain range, through the St. Paul Underground river cave, and then goes out into the South China Sea.

The park encompasses one of the world’s most impressive cave systems, featuring spectacular limestone karst landscapes, pristine natural beauty, and intact old-growth forests and distinctive wildlife.
