View of the impressive stalactites at the entrance of Pangihan Cave in Malay, Aklan.
Another attraction in Malay, Aklan is Pangihan Cave. Just 15-20 minutes from Caticlan Airport, is Barangay Poblacion where you’ll find the cave. The cave is said to have 8 chambers but we were only able to explore 3 since we were pressed for time. The whole cave system is said to have an area of 5,001 sq. m and can be explored in 45-minutes.
Cave interiors and guides.
The cave still has impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations but sadly there were lots of Vandalism in the interior walls. I guess the local tourism was too late to regulate and protect the area. Still it has good chambers. One of the guides said an international horror movie was shot inside this cave. Too bad the guides can’t recall the title of that movie. might have been interesting to watch.
