Ambush Cave

This  is the first place that we  visited for my "30 Hours Historical Adventure in Bulacan", together with Cath and our guide.  At first, I was afraid to enter this place, of course, I can't explain that feeling.  The area is really dark, and given the fact that there are some organisms that can bite me which can result to an infections, I am just thinking of an incident I saw from a movie.

This ambush cave or the Yungib 1 has a narrow and long cavern inside. There were several battles happened in this cave; this was the place where the Katipuneros brought the Spaniards and killed them. But instead of killing the Spanish soldier, the Katipuneros killed the other Katipuneros and the Spaniards killed the Spaniards, because the place was really dark and they didn't recognize that they were killing their own group members.

This is the long and narrow space inside the Ambush Cave.  The mud inside is reddish and the walls have its own art and shapes formed by the nature as the time goes by.

This is the exit in the rear part of the Ambush Cave.  The stalactites formed a great shapes and looks like it will fall because its hanging like the bats.  This is just a one of the Caves in Biak na Bato National Shrine that General Emilio Aguinaldo used to hide from the Spaniards and at the same time fought against them.

This historical place is under the management of the Department of Tourism with the help of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) of San Miguel, Bulacan in cooperation with the local government and Guides.
