The Philippines is a beautiful tropical nation that has much geographical splendour. Among her many attractions, the Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River National Park is one of the most astounding.
The Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River is renowned throughout the world and for good reason too. The underground river in question links straight into the ocean, which means that the entrance to the cave is influenced by the tides.
Perhaps the most remarkable aspect about the park is that it boasts a complete mountain-to-ocean ecosystem. The site is also known to boast some of the most important forests on the Asian continent, which is why it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So if you’re staying at a hotel in Manila Philippines with examples like Berjaya Makati Hotel, be sure to check out the park.
Flora and Fauna
Through a visit to this park you can experience eight of the thirteen different kinds of forest found throughout Asia, which is remarkable. Where animals are concerned, the park has around a hundred-and-sixty species of birds, thirty species of mammals and nineteen species of reptiles.
The park was chosen as one of the New7Wonders of Nature, along with the Amazon rainforest and Iguazu Falls.
