The guide at Hoyop-hoyopan Cave was very knowledgeable about all things about the cave. I was surprised to learn that the cave is owned by a private individual. The cave was developed for tourism but I don’t it was the blockbuster they were looking for. I was the only tourist here though there were other people walking around the cave. I was told that they were locals who were only passing through the cave as a shortcut to their village. I can’t think of anything stranger when someone says that they pass through a cave just to get home. Anyway, the cave played a part in history as well as this was where people sought refuge during the war.

The chamber doesn’t seem to be very large but there were a few twists and turns which keep the tour interesting. There was even a pool of water which apparently fills up when the rains come. One needs to be careful though since parts of the cave can be slippery because of the water. The cave seems to have a few “levels” since parts of the cave were higher than others. It gives visitors a different point of view of the cave. There was a part where one needs to squeeze through a very small opening. It was actually scary since you don’t know what is there on the other side. Part of me was worried that the guide would just shove a large rock behind me after I go in. He did walk in first maybe sensing my apprehension.
