The Tabon Cave complex is dubbed as "cradle of Philippine civilization" - with 200+ chambers found within Lipuun point, only 20+ have been explored, and only 7 currently open to tourists. This promises more exciting discoveries for the world! Already, some of the blotches found on the walls are thought to be prehistoric murals, and some stone formations may have been shaped as animal sculptures.
The whole Palawan province should receive a sort of "heritage complex" conservation status. Apart from the two existing UNESCO WHS (Puerto Princesa Underground River and Tubbataha Reefs), five other tentative sites are found here - Coron Island, El Nido-Taytay, Tabon Caves, Singapan Caves (petrographs) and Mt. Mantalingahan. The last two sites will be my next destination in the future.
