Hoyop-hoyopan Cave, Albay, Philippines

With the rising temperatures these days, enjoying the summer outdoors is a challenge. For those who dread the heat, caving is a sure way to have fun and burn calories without toasting your skin.

Because of its natural ventilation, Hoyop-Hoyopan Cave in Bicol is one ideal summer getaway for adventurers and tourists.

Tourists are expected to observe the rules inside the cave to maintain its natural form and avoid untoward accidents.

Sun-kissed travelers can enjoy the cool, fresh air inside the cave, which was named for the wind that passes freely through the different openings in the cave. “Hoyop” in Bicolano means “blowing of air or wind.”

One of the cave’s openings is a grand window, through which travelers can enjoy a splendid view of Mayon Volcano.

The numerous entrances and exits vary from two to 10 meters in diameter. These passageways will test your skill in squeezing, crawling, and kneeling to get through in order to reach the different chambers, including a mini-pond and a dance floor.

Inside the cave are wonderful formations of stalagmites and stalactites, as well as hidden sacred knowledge of the life of our ancestors — the early inhabitants of the area.

The late Fr. Cantius Kobak, OFM, a Franciscan priest and archaeologist, classified the cave as old as 3000 B.C to 4000 B.C. Meanwhile, jars found inside the cave were dated from 200 B.C. to 900 A.D., and attributed to Calanay complex.
