Well, in Argao, the agta has leveled up and likes to use a cave as its abode. The “Balay sa Agta” is a huge network of caves located in the Argao Lantoy National Park. The cave got its name due to its immense size. Local residents said the cave is the home to giants due to its size
The cave is home to thousands of bats of different species, some of which are endemic to the place. The place drew interest among tourists after videos caught snakelike “flying rods” inside the cave. The cave can become so dark that it will require visitors to use a very strong flashlight to be able to traverse it.
Exploring the Balay sa Agta is no walk in the park and it is necessary to register at the Argao Tourism Office before you can enter the cave. It is also important to get the services of a guide from the tourism office to avoid any untoward incidents. The registration fee for exploring the cave is PHP 600 for each person depending on the number of people in the group. It already includes the fee for the guide, environmental fee, equipment fee, fare for the motorcycle going to the cave itself, and snacks after the exploration.
Argao is just one of the places in the province of Cebu that has a lot to offer to visitors in this part of the archipelago. And the Balay sa Agta is one of the places adventure-seekers should not miss if they ever find themselves in this part of the island.
