Have you heard about an ancient cave in Mindanao at Cagayan De Oro City, Misamis Oriental, Philippines?

Macahambus cave is an ancient chamber with a small opening in its doorway in Bayanga, a barangay in the city.

Who would have thought that this exciting chamber was so easy to visit?

From my place, it took us two hours to arrive at our destination. It was not so far, so it was a fun ride to the cave.

The weather was fair, yet on the day before we traveled, the rain was so heavy, evident on the river surrounding the cave.

Anyone can easily track the cave since its entrance is just along the highway, and there is no environmental or entry fee. It is a magical and mysterious cave that continually descends and can be navigated by tourists.

Perhaps it is one of the top visits of anyone who wish to explore the city of Cagayan de Oro.

Every so often, the ancient cave has numerous tourists during summer or every Lenten season in the Philippines as it is a holiday, and family and friends could go with the flow.

Many are curious about its history, but the caretaker who was once there went with us and told us a brief history of the cave.

It is said to be historic because it is where the battle between the Filipinos and Americans took place in the year nineteen hundred. Filipinos had tasted success during this battle, well-known for significant victory in the entire Mindanao area.

Being a fan of history, I am interested in the beginnings of some things in life. I love to hear stories from the past; there is an incredible story of a destination I have been to somewhere.

In addition, the cave has a very tiny mouth opening, and the doorway to the exit of it has a smaller area to pass.

According to the caretaker, if we want to navigate, we can come back on another day, and we will start trailing in the morning so that we can finish early before nighttime.

After hearing the caretaker’s plan, my mind thought of many things, full of imagination.

Surrounding the Makahambus cave is a long river surrounded by tall, verdant trees popularly known as the Cagayan De Oro river, and it overlooks the site of the cave.

After I explored the area, I paused for a while and took a deep breath.

My mind is thinking of creepy things. The cave was so dark, and a lot of horrible things came out to my mind.

Meanwhile, I was thinking of bats, snakes, spiders, blackbirds, and other creatures in the cave. I have a phobia when it comes to these types of organisms, but still, I stay calm while I am at the mouth of the cave.

I was not ready to navigate the cave, so I took many selfies of the historical cave.

Despite my creepy thoughts, I had big smiles, and I was delighted to see a historical place in an accessible location.

What a wonderful feeling to see and witness a recorded cave in time found at the heart of Mindanao.

I hope I will have the courage to go back there once more and navigate it from the entrance to the exit of the cake.

Nevertheless, it was an exciting experience, and I enjoyed exploring a historical place.

Heard of it? I've been there and spent at a night at a resort just up the river whose name I cant remember. The whole nature reserve was beautiful. Do they still do rafting on the river? C de O was one of my favourite places when I was doing a lot of travelling over there years ago.

Stay safe and well Pinky :-)

Aww, you surprised me that you were once here in Cagayan de Oro City, my dear friend, @nathen007. Thank you so much for sharing your great experience here. So you are mentioning about the Whitewater rafting in Cagayan river. Yes, it is still existing. And you know, there are more tourist spots to discover nearby. I hope you could have a vacation in time. Once again, thank you so much, my friend.

I would love to come back one day and see how much has changed since I spent so much of my time over there 15 years ago. I adored Mindanao, especially travelling by bus :-)

Looking lovely! I've been in that cave a long time ago but never dared to enter too!
Too bad I don't have a camera back then and I don't know when can I go back on that place again
